Armani billboard – 2011 Number 8

Installed in New York City on the corner of 9th Avenue and 14th Street.

A theme in some of the other Armani billboards was the live model in a dead landscape. Here, something different is at work. The fencing evokes a spider’s web, with the male model at the center. The current Armani billboard uses the fantasy of Spiderman and the other Marvel comics heroes dominating the urban streetscape.

As the FRESH FROM BRAZIL banner for the most part covers the ties of the bikini top, the impression is that the model is topless. The twin peaks in the background also serve to provide the idea of breasts.

The ad’s engine is the subliminal association / suggestion provided by the unconscious cueing on the similarity of the word “fresh” to “flesh.”
