Creepy Diapers - Feedback Friday

While reading the Momlogic newsletter this week, I came across a short article about Good Night's diapers spoofing David Beckham's underwear ads in South Korea.



I'm all for a joke, but in looking at the photo, do you think a line was crossed? Would you think so if someone took a picture like that of your child? Would you want this type of photo getting into the wrong hands? Is my Mommy Radar broken? Am I over reacting?

It's Feedback Friday, let me have it...

  1. oh good grief! I thought that pic was a plastic doll at first, the way they "sweated" up the skin. My immediate thoughts were the same as yours. What if it was my son? Whose sick hands could this photo get into. I do get that it's a take on Mr B, but sheesh, I do think it's rather inappropriate... and I'm not someone who is fazed by lots of things. But when it involves a kid, uh uh, that line is crossed.

  3. I think it is terrible. It looks like an add for nambla. I think David Beckham should stop letting his image be used in these ads. I think it is high time some of these athletes start behaving like responsible adults.

  4. Agree totally---thats pretty nasty. What are they trying to accomplish with that ad: hey..your kid can wet the bed and still look hot?!? But then again, look at all the traffic its getting...glad we don't need diapers any more cause I'd have to switch to clothe!

  5. Sick....People get paid to come up with these add campaigns ? Was reading in another blog how a mom innocently posted pics of her young daughter on Flickr. A friend contacted her to tell her they saw her daughters photo on an international child porn website. First I would like to know why that friend was surfing a child porn site???? Second...legally the Mom had no rights to have the pic removed. Moral of the story.....think twice b4 you post pics of your children..they can be stolen, even from protected sites. Nothing is truly protected once posted on the WWW.
    Wow..did not mean for that comment to be so depressing...sorry ;-(

  6. Ugh. Definitely not acceptable.

  7. I am so with you on this...It seems that there are people with a strange idea of what is "cute"/"funny" when it comes to pictures of little kids. Besides being totally inappropriate...what are we teaching these kids at such a young age...makes me angry!

  8. I see where they were going with this - could be funny for a certain niche of people. It makes me really uncomfortable, personally.

  9. I think it's vulgar and not at all humorous. Given the amount of pervs in the world, this photo could easily be taken the wrong way and end up in the wrong hands.

  10. the picture is pretty bad, but knowing that out there some sick people are looking at that boy thinking and doing horrible things makes this a really horrible picture.
    no way. not my kids.

  11. Uh, no. I think your post title says it very well, "Creepy". Stopping by from SITS.

  12. EWWW! I'm NOT digging it! David looks hot but the baby deal is BIZARRE!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh no, I feel the same way about this picture. I can see how it was meant to be funny but with all the crazies in the world right now, I would NEVER want my child portrayed like this.

  14. So wrong. No, you're not over-reacting. I'm sure it's something pedophiles everywhere would love. I think it's sick. I defnitely would NOT want my child protrayed that way. Yuck.

  15. No, I think it's very disturbing and screwed up. I read a blog post recently about American Apparel doing the same thing, except it's not even meant is satire - they're taking young children, usually girls, and putting them in the same types of "sexy" poses as the adult models. Link is below:

    Seriously though, between this and things like the kiddy lingerie lines, it's really scary to thing about what's acceptable in the world anymore. :(

  16. Nope, you're not broken ~ gross!

  17. Line was definitely crossed. I get the idea behind it but it does go a bit far.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It definitely disturbs me. You are not overreacting!

    ReplyDelete
  19. gross - no, your mommy radar is NOT broken. as bad as the article on sex in 17 magazine this month...also something that is just wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  20. yeah, definitely crossing a line when you're greasing up a toddler for pictures.

  21. I completely agree with many of the comments, but particularly Natasha's. Sorry that I missed Friday Feedback. Trying to catch-up.
