So many words come to mind when I see this… but I want to hear what you think.
I think the top caption says it all. “reality… for men”

….I dont think it’s fair to say “ew” because not every man has a baby butt smooth front with a six pack, but I dont think the picture will help sell the fragrance!
I don’t really know? pretty hairy.
Good thing it’s “for men”. Imagine if it was a girl with all those hair. Just imagine-_-
awts.” WYD a female who has so many hair such as on the picture above?”
I think i just realized I’m a lesbian…

@forever_musing@xanga - ahahahaha
@Shinbi_Belldandy@xanga - i hear what you’re saying but that’s just unneccesary for selling a fragrance.

What! When did my guy sneak out of the house to do THAT!? Haha, it really does look like him.
Because my hubby is a lot more than excessive body hair to me and I’m crazy in love with him, I find him to be extremely hot and sexy – yet I consider this picture to be pretty disgusting. Haha, I’m pretty sure he’d find a pic of a woman’s unshaved legs kinda gross, but he doesn’t think of me as gross even if I get lazy in that respect during the winter.
unfortunately, that is the norm.but i have the intense urge to attack he computer screen with Nair.
What does the fragrance smell like?Beer and body odor is my guess.

ARE WHITE GUYS REALLY THAT HAIRY?!
That’s what comes to mind.
Also, he looks like he has no nipples….
forever_musing@xanga - lol
My boyfriend always said he’d end up on the front page of something.
Well, this isn’t a real ad for a scent, but I’d be interested to know what exactly it would smell like if they really did make it………..
SEEEEXXXXXY hahahaha that’d be awesome if it was a real ad, no one would buy it but still
what are they selling again ?
ew. nasty. groooosssss.
grinning….. I’m gonna be the weird one here and say… “hugggzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz”. (I can’t help it I have always like the hairy teddy bear type men) This one does look a bit photo shopped though. They totally wiped out his nipples when adding extra hair.
This is what happens when hair transplant goes bad.
@cornyonacob@xanga - Hahaha.
The picture doesn’t bother me. I don’t have to deal with that “reality.” My boyfriend is skinny, blonde, and hairless. Mmmm.
@Imnotcrazyjustinsane@xanga - LMAO
Fortunately, my boy looks much more like the real CK models than he looks like this guy. Actually, he could *be* a CK model – he’s that hot. <3
I personally think hairless guys are disgusting, so I have no problem with this picture. It doesn’t gross me out at all; I think it’s perfectly normal. However, not many people share the viewpoint, so I can’t imagine it’ll work well as an ad.
Thankful (lol my guy has a great chest and stomach)
Bahahahahahahahahaa I think it’s hysterical. =P
first word that came to mind? “gross!”
ewww gross, i don’t like hairy men….
probably looks better than “reality” for women these days.
eww, but true
ewww but true….lol
Haha we should have more describe this picture’s like these
hairy / gross
@Imnotcrazyjustinsane@xanga - no not all white guys are that hairy, some though lol and mostly when they get older.
im not going to lie, for so long i thought body hair on a guy was sooo ugly and gross but as i got older and dated guys who had some ( not as much in that pic ) i started thinkin it was rather sexy . just as long as its in moderation.
in my opinion men should have some hair, it drives me crazy when my boyfriend shaves his off although i love him either way, a man should be hairy on some parts.
when i look at this i think “REAL” cause not everyone has the luxury of being ripped and air brushed.

Gross…but sadly, true.
@LeMizzMizz@xanga - That’s hilarious.
love the “reality” bit.
not all men looks like that

If that was my husband, I’d make him shave! The belly, well…it happens.
Pants? D: please.
Disgusting, who likes body hair like that?
Glad I didn’t get his genes.
all the guys i know don’t have that much hair on their chest and stomach. o__o
it kinda is reality. i guess it represents american guys getting obese? lol. it’s pretty gross though.
um….. oh lord, that’s all I’ll say.

Welcome to the real, unshopped world.
i have the urge to put my head on that stomach and play with the fat.. seems like fun, because it sort of reminds me of a brown bear.
Not for all men…
@LeMizzMizz@xanga - That was pretty amazing. LMAO
Um….realistic? I guess?
what comes to mind is “thank GOD my boyfriend doesn’t look like that and actually looks like the calvin klein models!!”
even though I’d still love him if he didn’t ;D
calvin klien finally gave in to hire the average man instead of hot toned males because the average man is way cheaper than some supermodel.
Wow, guys, wow. It isn’t really a fragrance, it’s making fun of Calvin Klein ads. To me, it’s showing how we put ads of men with huge six-packs and perfectly smooth chests out everywhere, and hardly any men actually look like that. Same goes for women with the unrealistic advertisements.
*giggles* I only see one nipple. And I want to see what his face looks like, and know what kind of pose that is. He must be blushing something awesome.
@Begierde - same haha
LOL i like! my jaws dropped.
This is a satirical ad by Adbusters magazine/organization. “Calvin Klien” is purposely misspelled. ^_^
I love it.

truth hurts… my eyes
european man hair !
…funny, but gross. *chuckles*
Smexy-ly appealing.LOL - jokes.
Hey, I want my picture back…
People, it’s a joke! Not an actual fragrance. haha. =]
I must admit, I don’t find it very appealing… but it’s definitely what most men really look like.
So – is this someone trying to use CK to officially make being hairier and less “fit” than widely considered beautiful for men “okay” ? I hope someone does something similar for women… it’s time to make fragrances with reality for women! What would that entail, I wonder…
Is it really that gross?
@icze_einjhel@xanga - Pahahahaha. XD
haha i agree with the girl above
where his nipples?
hahahahaha whats! Finally a regular 40 year old beer buddy then a 6 pack 21 year old guy! I guess they’re trying to say “REALITY, not everyone has the perfect body.”
My first thought: This is a fake or a joke ad, right? Right? I’m not sure I’d believe you if you said it was real. Whether it is or isn’t, not every guy has a hairy beer belly. Most of them don’t have a six-pack, hairless chest and so on, either. Most are somewhere in the middle, between the sculpted “ideal” male body and a sort of this-gut-is-proof-I-can-hold-my-liquor male physique. Just saying. It’s conceptually the same for women. Most of us aren’t that “ideal” female stick figure, but most of us also aren’t as big as a house. In short: body sizes occur on a continuum, a bell curve with most people existing on that middle peak and a few extreme outliers on either side of the spectrum. Therefore the ideal body is no more or less a realistic portrayal of the average person than is a morbidly obese frame.

They might as well call the fragrance America instead of Reality. (just joking)
It made me think of Will Ferrel. Moar cowbell?
CAVEMAN WITH BEER BELLY EW
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. Ick!
@lapis_lazuli917@xanga - *laughs* actually he’s a beanpole.

What the hell do expect from a real guy?
@LeMizzMizz@xanga - hhaha lmao!
@forever_musing@xanga - LOL
Carelessness… like the average man..:[.
fat and hairy. tone up dude! i don’t mind hair cuz it’s normal for guys and guys who shave all over are fine sometimes, but other times it’s like….. who are you trying to attract, me or greg over there? so yeah, TONE UP!

It is obviously a statement that the fashion industry has a way with placing people in a world that is not normal nor natural to get us to feel like we must buy their clothes. As you can see this man is probably a “average joe” and he is the true reality of people…. or a symbol of it anyways… it wants us to see the truth and not the :”ideal image”…
I am so, SO glad that cuts off his face and his pelvis.
Shave and little more workout would do it .__.

…if that’s reality, then the men around me must be superstars. because i don’t know anybody who looks like that except for one person.. lol.
i hate that it is being marketed as “reality”.
Why should men be OK with letting their bodies and their health go?
Ok, everyone who’s like “ewww” is just proof of how brainwashed we all are by the media. Calvin Klein’s models are always gorgeous and flawless; they’re supposed to be so that the product will sell. It’s all little tricks in advertising because, oh heyyy, SEX SELLS. So take a minute to really think about what this is symbolizing: it’s saying that the models you see in ads everywhere are not real. Sure, they have pretty faces and a nice ass in their pictures, but look at them walking the street without make up on or the cellulite airbrushed out.This ad spoof is showing that the “REALITY” of people is not a man with a six pack and glowing skin with a huge package. The truth of the matter is we’re all imperfect in some way in the REAL world.
um, they misspelled calvin klein.
Honestly, I find it sexy. Chubby, hairy guys make the best boyfriends.
The people with the knee-jerk “omg ewwwwwwwwwwwww” need to grow up.
I wondered why my wife asked to take my picture the other night… Who knew I’d end up on Lovelyish?
LOL.. man i wish i could see your husbands when the time comes!! most will look JUST like that if not worse, so keep saying ew!
FAKE comes to my mind when i see this pic. Also, reconstructive surgery because he seems to be missing a nipple from all the photoshopping. yeah “reality” at its best
@LeMizzMizz@xanga - Regardless, it was pretty funny
sad reality? haha not a fan of this pic.
