Yet another Calvin Klein billboard has gone up in the prime Soho, NYC ad space -- the corner of Houston and Lafayette Streets. And surprise, it's bound to raise eyebrows!
What's going on? Is CK riding the press wave and changing it up unexpectedly to garner more buzz about the brand or just promoting its new jean? We're going with the former.
While the first sexy billboard -- a provocative threesome -- debuted in mid-June causing major public outcry and a media frenzy, it was replaced a week later by a much less controversial, bikini-clad model.
Now, just two weeks later, the bikini billboard is down and a greased-up and topless Eva Mendes has appeared in its place.
