    So who thought it was a good idea for Belvedere to use rape imagery to sell vodka?

    I think the ad is in extremely poor taste, but I think it might be a reach to call it "rape imagery"

    That's what "goes down" means. I don't think he was referring to the photo, but the copy.

    The ad puns on "goes down."

    "Belvedere Vodka: Ask for it when you know what she's really asking for."

    And, not for anything, but this is an excellent marketing ploy. All the faux outrage will certainly get Belvedere plenty of publicity with nothing more than a, "We're sorry if we offended anyone" as the cost.
