If Miu Miu's Fall Ad Campaign Was 'Irresponsible' Here Are Some Really 'Irresponsible' Ad Campaigns

As we reported earlier, Hailee Steinfeld's fall 2011 Miu Miu campaign, which depicted her sitting near a train track, was banned in the UK for being “irresponsible because it depicted a child in an unsafe location.” By that logic, the following ad campaigns, some of which depict actual dangerous situations, should never have made it to print. I mean, I can't believe we aren't hearing about people hurting themselves every day by climbing the Eiffel Tower in high heels and standing on top of volcanos. Although, death by attempting to recreate a Dior campaign would be a pretty chic way to go. Fashin has some excellent "irresponsible" ad campaigns with some hilarious captions here.
