Yesterday, photos of Michael Phelps’ Louis Vuitton ad appeared on the internet.  You really want that guy from the Subway commercials in your ads Louis Vuitton? Sure he’s the most decorated Olympian of all time, but $5 foot longs and $500 bags don’t really go together. You know what would improve this ad? Ryan Lochte.

Louis Vuitton is not the only brand that has made questionable choices in their ads. Perhaps these goof-ups from other brands will make them feel a little bit better.

Diane von Furstenberg: Perhaps they were trying to cut costs by opting to not pay a model ridiculous amounts of money for a picture of her face.

Juicy Couture: If you’re wondering what happened to all of the pink zebras in the wild, Juicy Couture stole them to use in their ads.

Jimmy Choo: If I could afford a pair of Jimmy Choos I would want to be buried in them too.

American Apparel: Just say no to old lady crotch shots.

Tom Ford: If only my boyfriend got this excited about shoes…

Marc Jacobs: Those legs would belong to Victoria Beckham, and they’re not for sale.

    Lochte could sell me a fur coat, and I have been a vegetarian for animal rights reasons for 22 years.

    I suppose Ryan Lochte, with his douche grillz, $15 sunglasses and peeing in a pool persona goes extremely well with $500 luggage?
    People at LV know a few things about fashion. They don’t choose their brand ambassadors randomly. Phelps has been Omega and Hilton Hotels endorser for years, he’s very comfortable with luxury brands.
    By the way, June issue of Vogue with Lochte on the cover is the worst selling issue of 2012.

    Phelps>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Lochte. 20 years from now Lochte will only be remembered as the guy whose mother talked about his one night stands.
