Marky Mark

Black coffee, a four-in-hand knot, Calvin Klein underwear. Some things are classic.

Other things—like ‘Marky’ Mark Wahlberg’s improvised dialog in this 1991, MTV-debuted television ad—don’t hold up as well over time. (See a more timeless view of the ’90s in our previous post on photographer Herb Ritts.)

To balance out some of the awkward moments (and testosterone) in the clip above, here are two more Calvin Klein ads, starring Kate Moss (sans Marky) and Eva Mendes, that will likely look as good in 20 years as they do now.
