Believe it or not, the most controversial commercial of Super Bowl 44 ended up being the bodacious Megan Fox in a sexy bubble bath plugging the new Motorola Devour. The commercial is so hot even nerds couldn’t resist the hype.

But unlike Janet Jackson’s famous nipple slip and related FCC debacle, the controversy over this commercial doesn’t concern unacceptable states of nakedness on primetime television.

The very beautiful Megan Fox has a rare congenital deformity known as Brachydactyly type D, or clubbed thumb, a condition in which one or both thumbs are significantly shorter and wider than the accompanying fingers. Her thumbs have a distinctly bulbous appearance with nails that are short and wide. Rather than show Fox's real hand in a close-up shot holding the Devour, the director substituted a hand model.

As far as I’m concerned, Fox’s hands don’t detract from her overall beauty. If she's the sell factor behind the Devour, with or without stubby thumbs, she’s a lovely endorsement.

Fictional standards of beauty created out of whole cloth are particularly damaging to the self-image of regular women. Try as we might, we can’t live up to them. 

Neither can women as gorgeous as Megan Fox.

    It's not a "fictional" standard if it's naturally repellant. Sorry, but human physiological reactions are based on chemical ones in the brain. Large breasts, symmetrical faces, and proportional appendages in women are all caused by several million years of evolution. It's like the gag reflex. Not everything about humanity is "constructed" or "fictional", especially not ingrained hereditary responses. No comment on this girl particularly, but when it comes to human biological reactions, this reporter is an ignoramus.

  • TruthbeTold 4 years ago

    Basically, the only thing "fictional" is the ability of deluded humans to pretend biology doesn't exist. If you personally don't measure up, the rest of the race hasn't made a "mythical" standard. It's just that you don't meet it.

    I wouldn't touch her with that thumb. Rather have Rosie Odonnell's cocktail frank fingers.

  • what? 4 years ago

    why would any one care about her thumb? The only people that could care about that thumb is if they have a thumb fetish or something

    I think it's stupid. I have the same type of thumb she has on my right hand and it's rediculous that they altered it. Had it been her figure it would be criticized up one wall and down the other. They shouldn't have altered her thumb or used a double.

  • FIshous 4 years ago

    Doesn't even look any hotter than your token high school slut with some makeup on.

  • LadyMickey 4 years ago

    Who gives a damn about her thumb or anyones "short finger" at that matter. The Media is just looking for an excuse to make her look like she got a disease! But I guess that part of the Media Industry....She still the SEXIEST mama! F*** YOU, F*** THEM, STICK A METAL POLE UP UR ASS MEDIA and ANYONE WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT STUPID SCANDALS LIKE THESE!:*

    Yall aint got nothing better to do than talk about a thumb?

  • Erin McMeel 4 years ago

    I understand why she would do that because I have clubbed thumbs as well and I am self-conscious about my thumbs. I am always hiding my thumbs when I'm in public, its a full time job really hahaha. But when I'm with my family I don't have to hide them because they already know!

  • winne 4 years ago

    that is retarted who care about her thumb. I'm suprise that the media just has to say one thing or flaw magan has. That isn't a big issue. I don't really think she hot either, just because she seems like a bitch, and I don't know her. I don't judge the outside I judge her personality. I also think that the media should stop encouraging megan as hot because that inapproiate and it's not a good idea for kids to look up to her.Well considering I am one.

    These little blogs always put a smile on my face.

    The topic is not really what's important, the idea that anyone can add their two cents (or in some cases half of one) on any topic they wish is the beauty of it and the reason they exist.

    You can learn, share, vent or joke and read the ridiculous and sometimes hilarious things that people write. If you like to criticize, appreciate, donate or whatever gets you off, there's a place to do it and plenty of people to suffer/enjoy what you write.

    That said, I third that. She can thumb me for all I care. I'd just return the gesture in kind. =)
