So, I saw that Kim Kardashian West was going to be starring in an ad for Hype Energy drink and I could not have been more excited. I was dreaming of how elaborate it was all going to be, with Kim flashing her goods all over the place and sexually showcasing the energy drink in exotic and erotic ways.
I really didn’t think any of that would be too out of line. That was, until I actually watched the video.
In what I am calling the least sexy Kim Kardashian West video to have ever been recorded, Kim is introduced as a 30-something-years old Audrey Hepburn type who can’t ride a freakin’ bike. Then the video takes a unique turn, flashing to Kim dressed as a Marie Antoinettesque, royal princess.
The only skin we get, out of all the layers of fabric she’s draped in, is her heaving cleavage for about 10-seconds.
To cap off the video, Kim wakes from her bike fall and appeares to get “hyped” by wearing punk-like clothes that, by the way, were about as appealing as the Bourgeoisie dress Kim was wearing prior.
So, yeah, it really didn’t get much sexier.
I like to think that I’m not asking for too much. I just want my Kim Kardashian West advertisement to showcase Kim K’s goddess-like figure and to not bore me to death.
This video hid Kim’s body, like she didn’t want Kanye to know she was pregnant and for this to be an “Energy Drink” commercial is an absolute joke.
The last thing in the world this advertisement made me feel was energized.
To say that this video disappointed me is the exact definition of an understatement.
