Erotic studio and swimwear line team up for perfect fit
Forget Abercrombie. Here’s a fashion line that knows its customers.
aussieBum, the Australian-based men’s leisure, swim and underwear company, is taking a bold step by aligning itself with America’s foremost muscle-erotica company, Colt Studios. This strategic co-branding, will unveil itself in an upcoming Colt film, the studio announced last week.
In a press release, Sean Ashby, president of aussieBum said the partnership “further demonstrates our desire to be part of the gay community in every respect.”
aussieBum was launched in 2001. None of the menswear stores in the Cedar Springs Entertainment district OutLines, Union Jack, Crossroads, Skivvies currently carry aussieBum, although Skivvies has in the past.
Colt says it will announce their aussieBum title later this year.
PETA enlists Peaches
Canada’s annual seal hunt, once just the target of protests during the spring kill, is now facing a yearlong PETA campaign. Posing next to a photo showing a hunter about to bludgeon a baby seal and bearing the tagline “Canada’s “‘Club’ Scene Sucks” queer Canadian rocker Peaches appears in a PETA ad that was unveiled Aug. 18.
Peaches isn’t one to mince words her new album is titled “Impeach My Bush.”
The campaign will attempt to draw attention to the slaughter of baby harp seals. According to PETA, this year, 333,000 have been killed for their fur.
Peaches joins a growing list of musicians and actors including Paul McCartney, Pamela Anderson and Brigitte Bardot who have condemned the seal hunt.
