Eric Balfour Underwear and Shirtless Photos: Valentino V Hunk. Why is Eric Balfour going all “bendy-backwards” in the pic above? Kinda slutty, no? He is (or used to be) the celebrity spokesmodel for Valentino’s male fragrance, Valentino V. And you know, of course, how advertising people tend to up the sluttiness to sell a product, right.
The video version of the ad is interesting as it kind of misdirected us to thinking that it is a car commercial.
We’d like to think that all that lying down they made Eric do is some sort of an homage to his controversial movie Lie With Me where we see Eric’s hard you-know-what. You can find the movie elsewhere but here are some shirtless Eric still photos from the movie (we think).
Here’s a question to our male Famewatchers: Are you more likely to buy a perfume (or an underwear) if the promotion sexualizes or objectifies men as in the Valentino V campaign above or would you rather buy men’s products which features female models like the JBS Men’s Underwear campaign we blogged about in the past?
Speaking of underwear, check out our Eric looking pretty good in a pair of green briefs underwear in the TV series Haven. We haven’t heard of the show before but its apparently been airing since 2010. Its apparently on the SyFy Channel which we, unfortunately, do not have.
Maybe some of you can tell us what’s going on here?
Want a closer look at Eric and his green underwear?
We’re guessing he is a victim of some crime, kidnapping or robbery perhaps …
… who eventually got back at his captors and shot them with a gun?
But who cares about the story, right? You don’t need a story if Eric’s impressive you-know-what gets all the attention. Haha.
For those of you wondering, no Eric does not appear to have a girlfriend at the moment. He did date actress Leonor Varela but they broke up sometime in 2011.
We’d not be surprised if the breakup sparked (or revived) the internet rumor that our Eric is gay. You know, like the one on IMDB which claims that he shacked up with Ian Somerhalder. Life’s not bad if people think you are playing beautiful music with the gorgeous Ian Somerhalder, no?
Anyhoo, those of you who want more male perfume celebrity spokesmodels might want to go check out our post on the Top Seven Best Men’s Perfumes.
