Progressive Motorcycle Shows Tap Nude Models for Ads

IMS Nudie Ad

Nothing attracts attention quite like a naked body, and this year's Progressive International Motorcycle Show maximizes that concept-- with a twist.

The IMS's "Human Motorcycles" campaign features what appears to be fully clothed females, but upon closer inspection turn out to be completely airbrushed-- and not only are the riders nekkid, so are the bikes, which are physically recreated by people.

The shoot incorporated dancers, yoga instructors, and circus performers, and required between 13.5 hours and 18 hours of work per setup; also on hand were 8 airbrush artists and 2 massage therapists.

You can click the above image for a NSFW behind-the-scenes shot, and click here for a YouTube clip from the proceedings.

Oh, and if you're interested in actually attending the show, here are cities and dates:

  • Atlanta, GA (November 2-4, 2012)
  • Dallas, TX (November 9-11, 2012)
  • San Mateo, CA (November 16-18, 2012)
  • Long Beach, CA (December 7-9, 2012)
  • Seattle, WA (December 14-16, 2012)
  • Washington, DC (January 4-6, 2013)
  • Minneapolis, MN (January 11-13, 2013)
  • New York, NY (January 18-20, 2013)

Hmmmm…how quick can I get me a massage therapists diploma….

On a more serious note…I enjoy the sights as much as the next guy. BUT (notice one ‘T’ only) – having spent my entire working career in the MC industry, an industry I might add, which claims to be trying to attract women riders, this pretty much destroys any credibility to that claim.
And I just don’t get this artsy fartsy routine. Same as some ‘artist’ pounding a bunch of bent steel in to the ground and calling it “Renaissance of Man” or some equally obscure, meaningless BS title.
I go to a bike show to see bikes…with my wife and the wives of friends. There’s other places to go see naked women.

If God didn’t want naked women to lounge around on crotchrockets then He wouldn’t have made them look SO nice while they’re doing it!

Mostly, `motorcycle art` tends to the clichéd and given the demographic, usually mostly soft core porn. This, I think is remarkably clever and beyond the usual peurile presentation.
Now, open the fuel cap so I can insert my nozzle…
!Doh!
