Calvin Klein Gets Censored From Showing Racy Calvin Klein Jeans Commercial in the US

Fab Flash: Calvin Klein's Racy Video Campaign Causes a Stir

Calvin Klein is no stranger to censorship. Last year, the brand was prohibited from showing Eva Mendes's sexy lingerie ads, and now they're receiving another slap on the wrist. The brand's steamy new Calvin Klein Jeans video campaign, shot by Steven Meisel, has also been banned in the US.

The grainy commercial depicts hottie models — Anna Selezneva, Anna Jagodzinska, and Natasha Poly to name a few — all over each other in what looks to be a old basement. It's definitely steamy, but we've see way worse on TV screens. Calvin Klein is currently working on an edited version that will air on cable. Across the pond, our overseas friends will get to see the uncensored version on their tellies.

To see the racy, uncensored video commercial,

Oh shit it, europeans smoke like chimneys too. This is racier than some rappers music video. And for selling jeans?! p.s. I'm sorry for the smoking thing, but it's honest no offense was intended, maybe just to chelsea.... i'm kidding....

I think us American prudes need to get over it - we're all adults here and trust me the kids who *MIGHT* see it (I highly doubt this ad will buy airtime on American Idol and/or Saturday morning cartoons) are sneaking to watch wayy worse behind their parents backs. In Europe nudity and sexual openness have been around and OK forever and the people there have turned out fine.

At first I thought I was being a bit prude but than I realized I was having a normal reaction. I don't need to see a threesome going on right after a commercial for Campbell Soup. Sex sells is one thing but this is a bit much.

there's nothing like softcore porn to get you in the mood to shop

there were definitely shots of breasts that you can't see at least on regular tv. i agree with censoring this--i wouldn't want the kids i babysit to watch this. i understand the media's getting increasingly sexual, everyone's saying, this is to sell JEANS.

unnecessary. i'm pretty sick of all this nastiness in general media. kids can so easily get ahold of this stuff. i also think the clearer ad above it says more and shows off the jeans better.

I think it's hot... It makes me wanna go-watch-some-porn, but not in a wanna-buy-jeans way. Not an effective ad for me I say :P

seriously really. they didn't think that would be banned from television?! at this point I don't even think they care, probably just wanted the attention of being banned. Bring back Marky Mark!!!

I think it's kind of hot. It's not like people don't see this kind of stuff everyday on the streets... whether it be violence, cussing, raunchy stuff, etc... Well, at least where I live in a big city... haha.

This ad is so close to pornography, I'm glad it's being prohibited. I'm no prude, but I agree with what someone said before, I don't know what TV channels you've been watching, but this is much to racy and disturbing. I completely agree with lizlee it looks like a hidden sex tape, and a group of underage teens having an orgy. I don't think our children need to see this when flipping through the channels. It's stupid to need to show this when your selling JEANS!

honestly Calvin Klein has been doing this for years and is probably going to continue to do it, it was only a matter of time before it got to this point. DO i love it no, do i hate it no. I can see why they wont show it in the US but i mean he got our attention and isnt that what an ad is suppose to do anyway?! good job calvin klein, your mission was obviously a success!

this ad is stupid and disgusting. not only is it completely innapropriate (thank God for FCC), but it doesn't even look like a commercial. teegall hit it right on the head - it looks like a hidden sex tape. either that or a perfume ad gone wrong (what's with the cheesy music)...

It's CK, he does this all the time and I still dont like it. I'm not a prude but I didn't like seeing his ads similar to these when I was 15 and I'm 26 now and I still don't like them.

definitely not a prude as well, but this is just a stupid level of sexuality. it's not even beautiful sexuality that can be appreciated, it's not artistic, it's not tasteful, and it's not fun either. it's just kind of desperate at this point.

ugh! I don't think it is tasteful or even sells the jeans well. I threw up in my head! I need mental mouthwash!
