Back in May we asked the ladies if watching Bar Refaeli frolic and writhe atop her bed, recline in a bathtub and not smoke a cigar make you want to run out and buy underwear for your man? Or does it just make your boyfriend horny and beg for a quickie?
We also wondered if watching Bar's perfection simply made women feel self-conscious about their own less-than-perfect body. Because, let's be honest, no one looks good when compared to a supermodel.
This week, after seeing Bar sporting what has to be the hottest flight attendant get up ever created, we wonder whether or not all flight attendants will become whimpering, self-conscious puddles of flotsam never again able to look at themselves in the mirror.

Fashion brand Brian Atwood hooked up with Victoria's Secret angel Candice Swanepoel for a steamy ad campaign. The ads are so steamy that print versions has been banned from hanging from the brand's Madison Avenue storefront and the video has been pulled from interior taxi video screens.
What all the hubbub about? Nudity. And lots of it. Nudity and a plethora of S&M-like activity. In the ad, Swanepoel sits in an office (naked) and watches herself on video screens engage in a bit of clothed, orgy-like action. It's fairly tame in actuality but we can see why it was pulled. No one really wants to be caught in a cab with their grandmother when that comes on.
One really can't write an item about Brooke Shields doing La-Z-Boy ads without referencing her spectacular advertising debut 32 years ago (yes, 32) for Calvin Klein when, at 15, she coyly uttered the famous line, "You wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing."
Now, at 47 and still looking quite the hottie, Brooke can be seen in a pair of new La-Z-Boy commercials. In one she is tormented by a neighbor who just can't get over the fact she got her furniture at La-Z-Boy. In another, Brooke makes note of the fact it's La-Z-Boy's 85 anniversary and that the brand knows it doesn't need an ad that screams, Sale!"
Or does it?
In a new Mitsubishi Electric Heating & Cooling TV ad debuting August 27, political pundits James Carville and Mary Matlin bicker of the temperature in their home. Apparently with the Mitsubishi solution, you can be both fiscally responsible and comfortable all at the same time.
The ad, created by Ames Scullin O'Haire, will air on CNN, Fox New and on ABC and CBS during convention broadcasts.
While no official word has handed down by the International Olympic Committee regarding Michael Phelps' appearance in leaked photos of a Louis Vuitton ad inside the Rule 40 window barring appearance in non-Olympic sponsor ads between July 17 and August 15, the media has its panties in a bunch over the kerfuffle.
The ads, shot by Annie Liebowitz, feature Phelps in a bathtub wearing a Speedo and swim goggles and on a couch sitting next to Russian Olympian Larissa Latynina whose medal winning record Phelps just broke.
James Franco has stuffed everything imaginable into this Samsung Galaxy Note 1.1 commercial epic in which he lauds himself for acting in, directing, producing and writing movies as well as writing a book of short stories, acting in a soap opera, directing a dance company and directing this commercial.
As he wanders through his self-created epic he engages in all sorts of Note-aided tasks including diagnosing strep throat, solving complex math problems and engaging in a pillow fight with a trio of youthful hotties. Though how the Note helps with that last task eludes us.
The 2:45 video, which hypes the Note's ability to aid with multitasking, even includes a Ferris Bueller-like send off at the end.
