Threesome Vampire Diaries Ad

Three's a Crowd: Is the Vampire Diaries Ad Too Suggestive?

For a network known for teen-centric shows, the CW raises more than a few eyebrows with its decidedly adult ads. Last year, it was the OMFG Gossip Girl ads, and now there's hubbub over its campaign for The Vampire Diaries, a teen vampire drama that debuts Sept. 10.


Specifically, the above ad — with the strategically placed boys (let me guess, one's a vampire, the other's not?!) — suggests a ménage à trois. Love does suck! Has the CW gone too far, or is this just the blood a new show needs?

That counts as risque these days? Dang. Then I must be some sort of lady of the nights since I frequently hang out with two guys at the same time. Though seriously. Enough with the teenage vampires.

Doesn't offend me. If the poster's a true reflection of the show hopefully it will turn off audiences who aren't mature enough to watch it.

This image implies nothing unless you have a dirty sick mind and want to go that route in every image you encounter.

Hmmm.. the only thing I was thinking about, gosh, another vampire show?! I'm so bored with vampires due to many vampire movies, books, etc... I wasn't thinking about 3some or anything like that, how is that implied with that poster?

This is *almost* as scandalous as this salacious trio: http://tinyurl.com/mtv83g I mean OMG, two guys and one girl in the same picture must be sexual! Kids these days and their threesomes...jeez.

I've always been obsessed with vampires ever since I was like four, but it is getting a bit over done. Every other thing they come out with is about vampires. I mean vampires are pretty sexual creatures to begin with so you have to expect some sexuality to be involved, but I really don't see what the big deal is in this picture. Not at all worse than any other teen movie.

lately theres been so much flack on suggestive ads that involve multiple guys and a girl. Media didn't care before when it was more girls and a guy. I think men are getting scared that women will start wanting threesomes with 2 guys with all this media making it look sexy! Not that this ad even look suggestive to me, it doesn't.

I haven't read the books, but from what I've garnered (working at a book store) the guys are brothers and both vampires... ones the bad boy and the other's the Edward Cullen of the two.

Everything is sex and/or violence now. Too bad. It makes the kids jaded.

I'm more offended by the fact that it's another f-ing vampire (teen) drama. I think it needs more blood. And guts. I'd watch that.

am i missing some hidden meaning here? i keep looking at it trying to make something controversial or inappropriate of it and can't.

This is nothing. And what's with acting like high school kids don't have sex? I had more sex in high school than I do now, that's for sure.

I don't see how having a girl and two guys in the same picture equalling some three-way action. If they were on each other maybe, but like this? It just strikes me as girl stuck between two guys (probably the whole "who do I choose?" angle). and I'm with snookyx on this one. My first thought was "oh crap, more vampire nonsense"
