Arnold Continues Stripper Fixation With New York Pravda Party
Perhaps taking a cue from Arnold's Boston office holiday party last year during which stripper antics were performed on a pole in Creative Director Pete Favat's office, Arnold New York management hired five strippers for its New York office party held at Pravda reports Agency Spy reports.
It seems the ladies stripped down to nothing but pasties and thongs leaving employees, Agency Spy reports, "shocked and horrified" with female employees "alienated" and male employees "guilty." While a full on strip show might not be the best entertainment of an office holiday party, pictures of the event make it all look like a harmless, burlesque-like show. In fact, the one lone female caught observing the so-called strip tease is smiling. Yes, smiling. Hardly indicative of "shock and horror." OK, so it's only one picture and to be fair, hardly indicative of the entire evening.
Certainly, strippers removing their clothing at an office party is bound to make some people uncomfortable and even angry. In fact, from a purely moral high ground, strippers have no place at all at an office party. Then again, the advertising industry isn't exactly a pillar of perfection. As much as this may have irked some in attendance, none of the female "strippers" pictured conjure anything remotely close to anything seedy or hookeresque. In fact, they look like flappers from the roaring 20's, hardly the image of old school Times Square hookers.
If, as Agency Spy reports, the ladies "stripped down to pasties and thongs, crawled around and generally, did what strippers do," where are the pictures? Why are we seeing just the "clean" images? Where is the photographic proof to back up this alleged ugliness? Please, do tell.
