Calvin's orgy ad causes predictable scandal

Calvin Klein doing something risque? I know you're all shocked. But an enormous billboard in New York's SoHo district, which has been up for a month, has people talking again. The controversy concerns a topless young girl lying on top of a bare-chested dude while kissing another dude—total threeway, unless you count the guy lying in the foreground, who obviously passed out before things got really good. I maintain that CK is actually giving SoHo its first relevant PSA: Don't party too hard, or you'll miss out on the group sex. You'd think that after all CK has done in the past people would just go, "That's Calvin for ya, always racy!" and look the other way. But the coverage by CBS's Early Show (with a cameo by our own Barbara Lippert) proves that prepubescent threesomes never get old. But the best part of the clip is the woman who admits that if that's what the jeans do for you, she'll certainly buy a pair. You've come a long way, baby!
