Agent Provocateur

Happy Monday Swimwear and Lingerie enthusiasts!

I’d like to dive right into our topic today if you don’t mind?

You see, I spent a good chunk of the weekend thinking over our Anything Goes Friday post about Agent Provocateur’s lingerie video, The Chase.

I have to say that unlike their past videos, such as the one with Kylie Minogue or The Muse, this one didn’t really ring true for me.

Na- unh

Yes, she looks spectacular in that set and it’s rather cute how she just keeps pursuing the dude as her clothing is ripped away.

... are more susceptible to sunburn. That's my PSA done for the day :)

But, I really think they missed a sweet opportunity to go all Parkour on it and show just how crazy-in-shape she really is!

But, the only speaking part at the end, “You’re going down!” really came off as phony.

Much like this neato picture. Which is a shame, because the concept is kinda cool for both.

It felt tacked on and stupid. I could see her jumping up, slamming the purse and doing a football-esque kind of victory dance

Now, that would seem like a realistic reaction to running him down!

…or even calling up the police on the cell phone that has handily been stored in her bra for just such an occasion.

Not really what I meant, but whatever.

{what? I can’t be the only person to do this all the time? Evidently, there has been some speculation that this is not a good thing to do…you can read about it here and here. I think I’ll wait for more peer reviewed data myself.}

But straddling him and saying that? Nah.

Not even close. Not to mention, this is a criminal she has just run down and is presumeably holding until the police show up…

yet she is in her lingerie… I had that very real feeling of not “Yah, alright, you go on there Wonder Woman”…but… “Damn, you’ve just put yourself in a really dangerous position wherein totally backward thinking folks would try to make a case that you were asking for a sexual assault regardless of your intentions or super-cool catchphrases.”

Wonder Woman says, "Unless you have an invisible jet and a lariat of truth, you need to make better choices"

{I should note that I hate anything that would give THOSE people ANY excuse or encouragement to make those idiotic and ass-backwards claims that ANYONE deserves to be assaulted. Because NO ONE deserves to be assaulted. EVER.}

Sooo, yah. That’s where I landed on the whole thing. What about you? What do you think? Drop me a line in the comments and let me know.

Cheer,

Maggie

I think we ought to let the Hell’s Grannies take care of it!
