What Up With Porn Creep

According to Wikipedia, “porn creep” is the process by which sexually explicit content infiltrates American pop culture. Many people blame (or credit) the abundance of sexual imagery and innuendo in movies, television and advertising on the increased accessibility and “cool factor” of pornography.
American Apparel, which has many otherwise redeeming qualities as a company, has made use of porn creep. And west coast burger joint, Carl’s Jr., is all about it.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
