From Andrew Sullivan, this Dutch ad which featured a progressively stripping fat man. Unlike Andrew, though, we don't need "reassurance" that he didn't take it to the limit. Because that would have been awesome. Unfortunately the whole theme of the ad is that the viewer *wants* the model to stop stripping.

the biggest problem I have with this is that it's intended to evoke a negative reaction in people. This is a disturbing trend in advertising that my partners and I have noticed. For instance Subway has a commercial where a large man is eating a berger while lying in a hammock, then it breaks. Sorry for the rant but it's a pet peeve of mine..
