This ad is disgusting. I am a 30 year old male with three kids. It's hard enough trying to find safe things for my children to do on the internet, now I have to supervise searching on search-engines? This ad is atrociously offensive!!!!! You could say, "Well all of the important stuff was covered up." Yes, you could say that if you were a word-twisting, addle-brained, troglodyte! Well if it helps make money, what's the problem. Anything for a buck right?! You're a bunch of amoral toadies. Hereafter, my wife will never do business with your company. I now hate your website and I will forever tell all of my friends who do business with you to stop. If you think this ad is funny, and original, you are a bunch of uninspired, tactless hacks! Why not something inspiring and uplifting instead of base, and course? Your company is a sad disappointment.

I agree completely with BillB62597, this ad campaign is indecent. I understand creating effective campaigns is challenging, but we expect better from Zappos. As a woman, I feel assaulted by this ad. It is shocking and degrading. Are you aware that approximately 25% of N. American women have been sexually abused? Can you imagine how that HUGE number of women are made to feel by your ad? The ad also tells boys and men that it's okay to expose themselves and be indecent -- which only leads to more sexual abuse of women. Know, Zappos, that you have a lot to answer for! If any of you decision makers at Zappos have daughters or sister, do them a favor and pull the ad campaign. How would you feel if a guy like "Arthur" ran into their living room or bedroom dressed like that?

maybe you all should teach your children that a human's naked body, the body God gave each of us, is a beautiful thing

I think this ad is brilliant! I love that they put normal looking people rather than the "Fabio type." I love the guy running through the different web sites. Hilarious and very clever!

I LOVED this ad, I think he should have a permanent 'run' on your website. Anyone who finds it offensive really needs to lighten up!
