UPDATE: The fine PR folks at Akoo have just released the following statement in regards to the controversy surrounding this outdoor billboard ad:
“The AKOO brand has always aimed to inspire individualism and creativity. Our advertising campaign was not created to offend or insult anyone but to simply provoke dialogue and thought regarding male/female sexuality within urban culture,” the company said as it alluded to exposing more sides of the brand in future promotions. We hope that as more of the campaign is debuted, people will see the multifaceted personality of AKOO.”
T.I. x Akoo. Hip-hop artists love to take it to the extreme when marketing their fashion lines. Diddy has pushed the envelop many times with his racy Sean John ads but has managed to get by. Now looks like it’s T.I. and his Akoo fashion line facing the heat.
Apparently their billboard ad in Newark is causing quite the controversy where it shows a woman on her knees pulling a guys’ jeans down. Controversy? What controversy? Peep the video for more. Via: RapRadar
