The Virgin Mary and Playboy?

Labels: , ,

There are somethings that companies should just never attempt. This is one such attempt, the Mexican December Issue of Playboy put on over their models as the Virgin Mary. The cover was released with model Maria Florencia Onori posing as the virgin. Its headline reads in Spanish: "We adore you, Mary." Now some times it makes me wonder why or who thought this would be a good idea. Needless to say the Catholics are up in arms about this.
Playboy Enterprises Inc., based in Chicago, released a statement Friday explaining that the company did not approve the cover because the Mexican version of the magazine is published by a licensee, according to Reuters. "While Playboy Mexico never meant for the cover or images to offend anyone, we recognize that it has created offense, and we as well as Playboy Mexico offer our sincerest apologies," the company said.

I'm not sure what to think, the photos were well done, but when does "artistic" value infringe on tradition. I guess it will be interesting to see where this goes. Below is another photo from the magazine, this one doesn't show anything, but it may be NSFW, so be careful.
