Redesign of 720 Fifth Avenue, corner of 56th Street, the future place of Abercrombie & Fitch. I was shocked to discover that I can clearly tell that testicles are on the south side of the pants, with penis pointing north, towards Plaza Hotel and Central Park. I found myself estimating the size of the penis by comparing it to a height of an average passerby below and came to the conclusion that it's about 8 feet. What's your opinion?

I never liked those Abercombie commercials anywy, but walking into the store through a giant male crotch is disgusting.

As much as Apercrombie tries to shock us, all they do is make me yawn. From their racist slogan t-shirts, to their advertisments that border on child pornography, their act has grown very tired.

It could be a girl with a maxipad all askew. But, I am in favor of 8-foot penises on Fifth Ave. I wouldn't mind having one on my block.

And here I was expecting pictures of some towering phallic sidewalk sculpture...

I know! Truth in advertising Edward... It's not nearly as dirty as you hinted. All I see is wrinkles, though I do think it's extremely funny that you enter through the crotch. That alone should be a permenant fixture somehow. I think all the "outrage" over A&F is a lot of discomfort with images of naked men. Plenty of publications & products make their $$ off photos of naked women... equal opportunity.

Hahaha thats hilarious! I can't really tell how big it is... But looking at the photo and the people below it looks to be big. I guess I will have to go there and check it out my self. ;) After all... It might aswell be the wrinkles.

There's another one of these on a billboard in the Meatpacking District.

Your significant other might start to protest upon noticing that your eyes would bug out significantly and you'd start drooling everytime you passed by...

I have to view that billboard on a regular basis. To make it even more absurd, there's frequently a line of construction workers voicing commentary on passersby. Talk about surreal.

I think the more interesting thing is the location of the pants and the total lack of pubes.

Well, if they're that lowrise, then some trimming must be done to prevent any embarassing revelations.
