Because MERKIN.

Posted on

A district visual manager for American Apparel in New York told the New York Observer the mannequin merkins brought something "new" to celebrating Valentine's Day.

Dee Myles said the merkins helped to "bring rawness and newness to a holiday thought of as a romantic Hallmark holiday … by exploiting the lust of Valentine's Day."

Myles added it was also "important to have instances spark up curiosity and conversation about what we deem beautiful and sexy."

The, er, fullness of the mannequin's public hair has been praised by a lot of women.

I'm gonna go ahead and admit that the full bush mannequin is the only thing American Apparel has ever done that I approve of.

Some are unsure how to feel.

American Apparel mannequins have big bushy pubes now. Kinda brave, still kinda pervy. http://t.co/q8HFCb6VNH

Some are NOT HAPPY that a mannequin would dare to not wax.

Full bush on a mannequin? Has the world gone completely batshit? Who thought this was a sexy idea

Whose idea was it to put bush on a mannequin

And some took the mannequin's pubes politically.

@Gothamist as if... 4 years of H. Bush & 8 years of W Bush weren't enough.. now we have Mannequin Bush! Sheesh!

Running on a political platform of pro-mannequin-bush and anti-bush-shaming.

And those of us covering the magnificent mannequin merkins have officially been caught out:

The media is obsessed with American Apparel's mannequin merkins only because they want to print the word merkin.
