Album Cover Nostalgia

A new recurring series inspired by the Lord of Truth. We all remember certain album covers fondly -- here's one more.

You knew I'd get around to mocking the Scorpions again. But can anyone explain what was the point of this cover? I mean, other than distracting everyone from the crappy music; of course, if that was the goal, they probably should have used this cover on every album.

Yes, I know I am going to catch crap for this.

From Wikipedia:

"The cover depicted a man and woman in formalwear seated in the back of a car, with one of the woman's breasts exposed and connected to the man's hand by stretched bubblegum." ... "The album's artwork was named "Best album sleeve of 1979" by Playboy magazine."

Bubblegum?! Perhaps I'm sick and twisted but it looks to me as if he's tearing off her skin.

I dont know about the rest of you but to me, the most disturbing part of this picture is not the very odd gum / flesh / brest whatever, its the EYEBROWS on that cat. For god sakes look at those things looks like a giant furry catepillar crawling on the guys forehead.
