Calvin Klein's Fragrances: Formerly Kinda Creepy

Calvin Klein's Fragrances: Formerly Kinda Creepy

Even though I was a wee thing when it launched in 1985, I remember how enormously popular Calvin Klein Obsession ($65) was in its day. It's a warm, spicy scent that is much heavier than any of Calvin Klein's more modern scents. But in the same way that ckOne feels like a stereotypically '90s scent, Obsession will always be filed away in the '80s to me.

While taking a trip down memory lane, I sought out a few commercials from back in the day. I am so disturbed by this one, I don't know where to begin. Is it the clapping? The confusion over whether our young narrator is talking about his mother or some other grown woman? Oh, the smell of it!

Then again, that's not half as weird as another Calvin Klein commercial from back in the day. Truly creepy. To see it,

.

Would this make you want to buy fragrance? I say no. No, it would not.

What is UP with the weird clapping and "will you save me" bit in the first one, among a lot of other things. And yeah, the second one is one of the more disturbing things I've ever seen. What psycho thought that was good marketing? I think everyone lost their damn mind in the 80's.

These were both super weird, the first reeks of insest, and the second, well, let's just say I agree with everyone else. Does anyone remember the SNL skit that parodied the first one?
