Scanned: Shaun Butler’s S&M Challenger Ad

Where do I even start with this one? I was going through the box of photos that I used to have hanging on my wall looking for something good to put on the site. The only problem with that was the fact that pretty much every photo and or ad that I looked at became a candidate. I managed to narrow it down to a few really good ones and was just about to put the lid on the box when I saw the corner of this little gem poking out. Over the years S&M has had plenty of ads that were pretty out there, but I think this one takes the cake. I’m not 100% sure about the date or what magazine this ad ran, but if I had to guess I’d say it was in Snap sometime around late 1994. There’s two things about this ad that I’m still trying to figure out to this day. First, is that Butler’s real hair? Second, if that is his real hair, is that the hairdo he was rocking back then or did he just cut it into this ridiculousness for the ad?
