On July 6, the New York Post reported that Christopher Meloni’s new promotional video was controversial on social networks.
Two days earlier, the 62-year-old actor posted on his Instagram account more than 1 million followers a video promoting socks. The video opens with Christopher lying on his bed and talking to the camera. Nothing out of the ordinary happened until he sat up, pulled the blanket off, and revealed his naked body, with no clothes on it but a knee-length sock.
Christopher Meloni poses naked in a socks ad.
The video then switches to the veteran actor standing in the kitchen. He beat eggs while lifting each leg to show off the different colors of socks. The most sensitive part of the body is covered with a mosaic effect.
“I never took these kids off. It’s better than being naked,” he said in a low, hoarse voice.
The ad ends with Christopher lying on his arms on the bed, showing off his naked (shadowed) bust and wobbling his socksed feet.
At the age of U65, Christopher Meloni has a muscular, solid body. This may be the reason why he confidently acted naked in commercials.
According to the New York Post, the 18+ ad attracted more than 1 million views and thousands of comments.
Meloni wears nothing but socks, her sensitive parts are made a blur effect.
The American newspaper assessed that the “sex sells” tactic (using sex elements to attract customers) was outdated but still seemed to work in the case of Christopher’s ads.
Many netizens expressed interest in the advertising idea. A series of comments were left below the video: “If I order 12 pairs of socks, will I get Chris Meloni for free?”, “Do I get as advertised if I order socks?”, “Buy the socks.” All the hype”, “Best advertisement ever”, “The marketing team understood the mission”…
Some praised the veteran actor’s appearance: “This man should be voted the sexiest man alive”, “He’s sexier than most actors decades younger in Hollywood. “, “Chris just became a national treasure”…
However, not everyone is comfortable with the image of “no children under 18” regardless of whether it is covered: “I know this man’s wife is tired of his antics”, “He took off his pants What’s a shirt for?”, “Ridiculous”, “Nonsense and classless”…
Christopher Meloni was born in 1961 in Washington, DC, USA. He is best known for his role as Detective Elliot Stabler on the NBC series Law & Order: SVU. In addition, he also acted in many other TV series such as Oz, Happy!, The Handmaid’s Tale…
He married Sherman Williams, an artist and art director for Hollywood film projects, in 1995. They have two children together, a daughter and a son.
