Zappos Nudity Campaign Compared to Artist's Nude Photography

2011_07_Zappos-Ads_1.jpg

So Zappos is out with a new campaign that features nude women going about their day as if doing so completely nude were completely normal. QR codes in the ads lead to a site on which you can clothe these beauties. All well and good. Though we're not sure why anyone would want to put clothes on a hot nude woman if they didn't have to. But that's besides the point.

One Adrants reader thinks the Mullen-created ad campaign is a bit too close in likeness to work from artist Erica Simone. You can take a look at that work here (naked breasts so NSFW) and the Zappos ad here.

A similar comparison is being made between an Erica Simone image of a naked woman riding a motorcycle (semi-SFW) and a Zappos ad featuring a woman on a Vespa.

This sort of thing happens quite often and, in most cases, is pure coincidence. We've reached out to Mullen for comment and they have assured us any similarities are, in fact, purely coincidental.
