Here are contenders 13 through 16.
13. DirecTV’s naked Burt Reynolds. DirecTV dug up a 1972 photo of a naked Burt Reynolds for an ad that read, “Everything should be seen in DirecTV HD. Well, maybe not everything.”
14. Steve-O’s naked PETA ad. Jackass’s Steve-O, who’d rather go naked than do anything, joined PETA’s “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” campaign.
15. Dolce & Gabbana’s rape ad. D&G came in for plenty of criticism for this scene of subjugation. Stefano Gabbana said he didn’t see the big deal.
16. Gatwick’s huge pole dancer. Those arriving at England’s Gatwick Airport got an eyeful from a giant ad in a nearby field promoting an explicit Web site.
Vote below for the freakiest of the four. The top vote-getter at 11 p.m. Monday night advances to Round 2.
UPDATE: Burt Reynolds runs naked, screaming into Round 2. See the voting results here.
