According to an article by Kevin Fasick and Dan Mangan in the New York Post:
Brooklyn Law School officials rented Diesel its library expecting a tasteful photo shoot for a jeans ad — but what they got was a steamy display of writhing young models in skimpy lingerie grinding against books and computers.
“It’s gross. I work on those computers every day!” fumed a female student, referring to a shot showing two bra- and panty-clad women climbing over the machines toward an open-mouthed man.
Brooklyn law is mad because the fashion company assured the school that the photographs would be, you know, classy. Because clearly there was no reason to think that Diesel and Brooklyn Law School might have different ideas about what appropriate means.
Brooklyn Law’s interim dean, Michael Gerber, wrote an e-mail to the school on Friday: “When the school gave its permission to do the shoot, the school was assured that the photos would be in good taste. They are not.”
Come on Gerber, you’re a lawyer. If you wanted Diesel to adhere to your version of good taste, you should have specified the terms in the contract. [Image via]
