Flying Machine’s new advertisement drew controversy

It was meant to transport the brand into the consciousness of India’s youth, but a new advertisement by Flying Machine has flown into a storm of controversy instead. A welcome controversy! One of India’s early home-grown jeans brands, Flying Machine, over the weekend, released a print advertisement that shows the picture of a female model wearing tight fit jeans around her buttocks, with the catchline in big, bold font screaming: ‘What an Ass!’ It was probably meant to highlight the oomph and cool quotient in an old brand, perhaps even mimic the edginess of the ‘All asses were not created equal’ tagline in an advertisement last year by larger rival Levi Strauss & Co. While the jury is out on whether Flying Machine’s latest campaign has found resonance with the cool set, the advertisement is generating heat in some quarters.
