Around 2007, American Apparel clothing became the thing to wear for young urban hipsters who wanted to stand out while looking exactly like their friends. Hoodies mysteriously became the clothing choice of the elite, socks got reeeeeeeally long, and gold lamé was mysteriously more popular than it was in the '70s. Either everyone was suffering from mass hypnosis, or American Apparel ad campaigns full of young, sexy, and mostly unclothed women were striking a chord with consumers around the world. Everyone and their brother got sucked in, and you probably did too. But some of the advertisements arguably crossed the line. This list is a collection of the worst American Apparel ads in the company’s history.
