Contraverstial Advertising

American Apparel has been all over the media and social networks. They have gotten themselves into a hairy situation (Pun Intended).
American Apparel Valentines window display here in New York's Lower East side has been receiving lots of attention. Mannequins have on some sheer lave lingerie. Shouldn't be a issue since victorias secret displays are the same way year round.  Only difference here is American Apparel mannequins have been added dark brown merkins to their genital areas.
Honestly I find it hilarious, So have a lot of people that have seen the display.
American Apparel Spokesperson has said:
 "American Apparel is a company that celebrates natural beauty, and the Lower East Side Valentine's Day window continues that celebration,". "We created it to invite passersby
They have only received positive feed back from people and the media.
I give American Apparel a thumbs up for advertising and finding a way to get noticed I do wonder if the sales have gone up in the store?

What do you think of this display?
