::wondering if I'm getting caught up in the Nightly Naughty Topics and Posts that Ace, CG, and Yuliya seemed to have created::
For the record - my contributions were to another topic. This is Ace and CG's doing. I was busy.
Now back to CG's question, which Ace for some reason decided not to answer (esteemed M-me Administrator probably thought it was obvious.) During the filming of TCA, PB had a clause in his Bond contract that prohibited him wear a tux in anything not Bond-related. During the bal scene, his bow tie isn't tied - which, technically, means he isn't wearing a tux. This inapropriate for a formal occasion look was a way to avoid breaching the contract (and please the fans, too.)
And yet back to Ace's question, no, I won't buy Maidenform. I've tried it before and swore against it. Well, only if it wins me that creep the pundit is raving about.
Hmmm, maybe I should post here one of those "this $65 undershirt won't look as good on you but at least it'll make you want to work out" ads before I've thrown away the magazine. Nah!
;D ;D you didn't read my little warning label did you? ;D ;D Besides these kind of topics tend to go a little off topic anyways... And no of course I didn't mean PB in the Maidenform... You are such a cute and silly monkey!!!
Funny you should say that. Lingerie store people hawking the stuff along on the street I use when going to work have been making a chain of bras and panties, stretching it out along the median as if it's performance art. Maybe it is, if they're showing off its elastic qualities, but it strikes me as woefully un-sexy. I much prefer the scenario by Maidenform: a night out at the casinos with the former Remington Steele, both of us losing our shirts. Of course, fortune smiles later in the evening. I'm not wearing my lucky bra for nothing.
I just saw a blog post on Maidenform in a larger discussion of what's sexy without showing the sex (referencing scenes from films and books)
The pertinent part (if pertinent can used about a discussion on bras and sex in a Cousteau topic! )
You say you have trouble deciphering the Immortal Bard? Okay. Here’s something a bit more down to earth.
A few years before the people who make the James Bond films discovered what I have known for years, namely that Pierce Brosnan was born for the part,** Brosnan made a couple of commercials for (you won’t believe this) the Maidenform Company. Elegantly dressed in a tuxedo, he loosens the formal tie, folds his arms, looks into the camera, and casually tells the following microstory:
“It was our first time in Monte Carlo. We were heading out for the evening and she said, ‘I feel sure we’re going to win tonight. I’m wearing my lucky bra.’ So we headed downstairs and, sure enough, we lost our shirts.
At least one of us was dressed for it.”
Maidenform Bras? You bet your sweet life! He could have sold me swampland in Louisiana and the Brooklyn Bridge, too. That 15 or 20 seconds was sexier than any physical act that I have ever seen portrayed or read in any novel.
Albert Einstein said, Imagination is more important than knowledge.
As always, old Albert said a mouthful.
I so want a copy of this commercial. Come on You Tube!
I believe there are two tv spots as referenced in the original advertising article. The other probably uses the text that's on one of the the Maidenform Ads I scanned. The text for the casino ad is on the other ad I have, but it was two pages -- one of PB without the text that I scanned and the other with just the text that I didn't scan.
