OMFG: New Gossip Girl Ads Spark Controversy

at . Comments

While the CW has yet to turn our beloved Gossip Girl into any sort of ratings hit, they're certainly good at creating buzz for it.

With 13 episodes aired to date, the series returns after a long hiatus on Monday, April 21, at 8 p.m., with the first of five new episodes.

To promote the new episodes, the network recently launched a scandalous ad campaign that can be summed up in four letters: OMFG.

There are two sexy new posters promoting the return of the teen soap / drama, both of which will be seen all around the country.

The thing that makes these Gossip Girl posters controversial? Well, they show several couples from the series in seriously erotic poses...


"Oh my (f*%k!ng) God," indeed, Gossip Girl.

It's not hard to see why this ad campaign would stir raise eyebrows. Gossip Girl is a show aimed primarily at teens, and here we have Chace Crawford giving Blake Lively what appears to be a mind-shattering orgasm. Gulp.

Of course, the ad is lot like the show itself that it's edgy, daring, scandalous, and (let's face it) hot. Here's a second version of the OMFG campaign featuring Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck (Ed Westwick)...

OMFG Again!

What do you think? Which of the two new Gossip Girl ads do you like more - and is the show going too far with the whole "OMFG" angle?

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
