With the launch of AA's new line of bedding?pillowcases or twin/queen/king sheet sets in either gray or white?comes a whole new reason for scantily-clad models. Except you see, since these items aren't clothing, there's really no need to bother with cladding at all. And so we have the typical American Apparel flash-heavy photos of models in compromising positions, seemingly following the rules of callgirl ads.
Now we're no prudes, but this second group of sheet poses does not make us want to buy their $40-and-up bedding any more than mud wrestling makes us crave chocolate pudding. Leave the back-page callgirls alone, Dov, unless you'd like to hire them, but oh wait?you've already got problems there.
