Mashable reports the image is part of a ‘risqué’ new marketing campaign called ‘Erotica’.

The image, snapped by Harley Weir, featured the message ‘I flash in #mycalvins‘ and certainly did the trick in getting people’s attention.

One user even suggested the picture had ensured they’d never purchase CK products again:
