VIEW THE FULL COVER BEFORE YOU JUDGE! Shock Value definitely works, and the new Playboy South Africa cover (only out next week, but you get to see it first on MediaSlut!) is definitely that and more! Beautifully executed, and as Charl du Plessis (Editor) told me correctly, it’s actually the most “conservative Playboy cover yet”… when you have all the facts. “The idea behind cover is to make fun of SA’s misconceptions about Playboy and the prejudice we experience. Confronted with the cover while harbouring misconception or acting prejudicially, you will infer only one thing from this cover. If, however, one cares about first investigating things up close before jumping to ill-informed conclusions, you may see something else”, says Charl exclusively to MediaSlut.
I think it’s a great cover, and worth a discussion. You can leave a comment below to voice your opinion on whether you think the cover is ‘lip-lek-lekker’, or ‘lust-louzy’…
