You may find this hard to believe, but it seems a Calvin Klein ad over on Houston Street has ruffled some feathers for its racy content. We know: Shocking. This time, the offending billboard involves a damp Eva Mendes manhandling an equally shiny guy. As Calvin Klein goes, it's kind of vanilla: There are only two people involved, they don't look like they're cutting tenth grade homeroom, and neither appears to be on the brink of starvation. Still, the Daily News managed to scare up at least one offended party, an MTA worker wondering why no one seems to be thinking of the children.
