VH1’s New Ad for Dating Naked Is All About Jumping Naked (in Super Slow Motion)

Mistress promo for Season 2

Coming up with fun ad ideas for a show like Dating Naked isn't exactly Pluto-level rocket science. You think of fun things naked people can do besides dating, and you film them doing it. Then you blur their privates and watch the YouTube count rise.

Last year, VH1 got Los Angeles agency Mistress to make a Dating Naked ad with people dancing naked. Now, agency and client have followed that up with an ad showing people jumping naked. The twist: It was filmed in super slow motion at 1,000 frames per second.

Check out the spot below, which the agency describes as "a graphic visualization of the insight that it is all about our true selves, finding true love—without all the bullshit."
