Boy band poses naked...

jeff's picture

Some group I never heard of called Billiam posed naked for some campaign drawing attention to eating disorders. I don't quite get the connection, but am never too concerned what prompts boys to get naked.

For some reason, they really wanted to put the boy in boy band and seemingly shaved downstairs entirely.

I'm sure no one's interested by now, but here's the link: http://www.omgblog.com/2007/08/omg_they_have_no_pubes_billiam.php

If they were a bit fatter I could see a connection. But all this does (besides turn me on) is reinforces the "look sexy" "get thin" message thats already currently plaguing teenagers.

Also the ones who are able to cover there genitals so easily with one hand must be sort of small.

that and the whole hairless

that and the whole hairless thing is infecting the boys too. we women have been doing it for hundreds of years, so welcome to our world. :)

BUT, enough with the rant....

i don't really see how stripping down to their birthday suit is going to help with eating disorders since they were all slim, slender, thin guys. if anything, it'll reinforce it.....

and the whole hairless is thing is quite creepy....

These gots peanuts and soap in 'um!

Indeed, this just reinforces

Indeed, this just reinforces the message that to look attractive, you have to look like them. It's not to highlight eating disorders, it's to sell new songs. Getting naked is a great way to get linked to across the Internet and get noticed..... oh look. :)

That is probably the most

That is probably the most pointless (and slightly creepy) thing I've ever seen.

I really don't get it...who is their market here? Insecure teenage girls or priests in the Archdiocese of Boston?

so, i'm really confused...

so, i'm really confused... the tagline says 'end shame over eating disorders' so are they saying 'you don't have to have an eating disorder' OR 'have one and don't be ashamed of it.'? cause these lads don't really inspire me to battle the urge to purge, dude.

It's been a lifetime, a lifetime we've waited for.
A simple question, kid, "are you with me or not at all?"

Maybe one or more of them

Maybe one or more of them WAS anorexic/bulemic/obese and got to look like that?

It's nifty enough, I have to wonder how much is airbrushed though hmm.

Say What?

Seems like simple self-exploitation to me. Whatever. Left me totally flatlined. The name busted me up, though. This household uses Billiam as a joke name for William, like Bobert for Robert, and such.
