Bryan Adams Shoots an Ad for Guess. Who knew?

If I hadn’t put the answer in the title I would have asked you to guess who took this picture. And you would have been stumped! Because who would think Bryan “Cuts Like a Knife” Adams would be responsible? But he is.

I think Adam’s 1980s magic really helped considering how reminiscent of the glory days of Guess ads this is. I don’t see myself ever craving that back pocket triangle as I did when I was in 5th grade, but I like this picture. Nice work, Brian.

If this ad makes you think of sweet Sophia Loren, it’s no accident. The vibe is designed to be Italian rustic village, and the Italian actress’ hair hair guy was called in to do the honors.

Brian Adams a cheeseball? Only in the 90s with that unfortunate Robin Hood song, but “Run to You,” “Summer of 69,” and “Cuts Like a Knife” cannot be denied.

Line Gost looks NOTHING like Sophia Loren. Totally different body type and face. Adams is a good photographer but this was a mistake and falls small and ultimately flat.
