I Hate This Commercial

Saw a commercial on TV this morning that I found irritating, irresponsible, and stupid. It's a Levi's ad. A guy and girl going up steps of an apartment building. Working on undoing clothing as they go. And making confessions... "I'm not really in a rock band." "I don't really work for a label." And so on. And then the guy, as they go into the girl's apartment, clothing coming off, flashes of skin and underwear, confesses that he lives in his car. And the girl confesses that this isn't even her apartment. Lights flash on, quick shot of a family pic on the wall (the crazy, horny, lying kids are white, the family in the picture is black). Lights out and they go at it. WHAT??? And I saw this while watching the NEWS at 6:30 in the morning!! I'm not going to post the actual video here because I don't want it on my blog. But I'll give you a link to it. Love to hear what others think!

Haven't seen this one yet. But must say that based on your description (I'll look at the link later) it sounds offensive... at any time of the day but especially in the morning when kiddos could be around.

I despise and resent everything in this string of commercials. And I can guarantee no money that I have any say in will go towards Levi's products as long as this campaign is going on.

Now I'm not a prude by any means and have a fairly open mind when it comes to today's society but I'd really like to know how this commercial sells jeans????????????? It is offensive - especially during prime time.
