The Olympics are over and as Racked has pointed out, maybe swimmers, (because we know you were glued to the emotional roller coaster that was men's aquatics) are sexier when they're not talking or expressing themselves. It appears to be with this strategy, Louis Vuitton, has launched a Michael Phelps ad, proving Nietzsche wrong and that God is alive, well and turning out imagery of wet guys in Speedos in tubs with Louis Vuitton bags. Meanwhile, the gals over at Fashionista are looking real hard between Michael Phelps legs... and seem to have spotted a fart bubble. [Racked]
