Selling shoes to whom?!

This Adrants post features an actual ad for Patrick Cox shoes that ran in swanky Brit design mag iD--be carefully opening this at work as it shows two buff men in jockstraps engaged in a fair facsimile of intercourse. Behind a woman on tiptoe in a pair of Patrick Cox shoes. Clearly, it's a reference to the Puma ads of disputed provenance I wrote about a while back. Beyond creating a ruckus (which it has by getting censored), does this sort of thing really move shoes?
