For those who had been following this (or not): I posted last week that I had seen a Zappos ad in "Lucky" magazine with a naked girl on a red Vespa, but I couldn't find it on the internet. Well, Yahoo and New York Times have the article here: http://finance.yahoo.com/banking-budgeting/article/113102/zappos-unadorned-marketing-approach-nytimes

Well, as long as the Vespa is doing nothing considered by community standards as obscene or lewd...

This ads combines two of my favorite things. It's a winner for me...

She's wearing boots and a helmet, but where are her gloves?

I knew this ad looked familiar! She's actually wearing a bathing suit. I came across a pic a couple of weeks ago on Flickr, same chick, same Vespa... Seemed like a photoshoot. Check out the source link below:

Think an ET4 would suit her better?

If you look closely in the "real" photo (not the ad one) it appears to be a ski helmet....Has a tab in the back for the goggles and all the right venting...plus looks just like mine only white and with stickers on it instead of blue.

It did get pulled.
Some were not fond of my naked vespa finds.

They weren't that bad, other than being a little dated.

The reason I say this, it appeared that the pix had been taken before the advent of silicone implants.

Hey I know that scooter. The guy who owns it parks next to me. That is he did until the po-po had a, surprisingly very small, issue with him driving with a permit. He was supposed to take his road test a couple days ago.

You rented it out...hehe. I dunno why but it reminds me of a Woody Allen line from "What's new Pussycat?"

“I got a job at the striptease. I help the girls dress and undress.”
“Nice job.”
“Twenty francs a week.”
“Not very much.”
“It’s all I can afford.”

it is apparently a part of a larger campaign by zappos:

I thought I was the only one who remembered that movie and those lines! The "old" Woody Allen... hilarious!
