And one more ARE YOU KIDDING ME? moment provided by Levi Strauss commercials

Alright, now I'm just ready to bang my head against a brick wall in disbelief that this can even be in print. But here, STRAIGHT FROM THE LEVI STRAUSS WEB PAGE is their description of this commercial that has me so up in arms:
The last TV ad, ‘Secrets and Lies’ – features two characters confessing a series of white lies as they unbutton their Levi’s® 501® jeans. Their unveilings, along with the physical unbuttoning of their jeans, captures the provoking theme of self-expression and unrestrained behavior central to the “Live Unbuttoned” campaign.
Are you kidding me????????????? Unrestrained behavior?????? Oh yeah, THAT'S what we're trying to teach our children and grandchildren! THAT'S going to make the world a better place. UNRESTRAINED BEHAVIOR!!! Here's two more email addresses for you -- the wonderful folks who are SO proud to put their names and emails out there as being responsible for these commercials.

Joan - I hadn't actually seen the commercial until tonight when it was featured on the O'Reilly Factor tonight. Bill doesn't think much of it either... Thought you'd like to know, you're in good company.
