What We Talk About When We Talk About Talking Bras

By Patrick Coffee 

If your bra could talk, what would it say? We never thought to ask that question, but it’s cool because now Barkley has answered it for us with this new spot for Vanity Fair, the lingerie line. Not the magazine. Are they two separate things??

We don’t know about you guys, but we feel like this ad is telling us that bras are not your friends.

We found this one kind of amusing and it definitely reinforced the fact that we are glad we don’t have to wear a bra.

Yeah, the products weren’t really talking. Just wanted to boost our snob cred with the Raymond Carver rip.
