why the coke snorting and the throwing up??? even if it does relate to reality, i don't see the purpose in showing it. making fun of serious issues is not that funny sometimes.

It's an allusion to the stereotype of bulimic, frequently hungover, coke-addicted supermodels.

He totally understands that.
His question was "why was all that necessary?"
And I think they could have done without those shots. And I'm almost positive that this is an agency version and they have another cut "just in case."
It is a serious issue and not to be taken lightly, but the problem is so prevalent and stereotypical of the industry that it's begging to be made fun of. I don't know how that's going to affect the whole image of Harvey Nicols, but it definitely shows their wicked sense of humor.

Although totally different ideas, I couldn't help comparing this to Amex "Ellen DeGeneres" tv spot that ran recently. Almost exact same look and feel with a bunch of animals running around the set. Both VERY funny!

The goat should've been upchucking in the tiolet bowl, not in the urinal...
