Fuji promoting GFX 50 with topless model shoot?...

http://metro.co.uk/2017/02/24/fuji-tried-to-promote-its-new-camera-by-providing-a-half-naked-model-to-photographers-6470997/

Take the guy's outrage with a grain of salt if you will, but it did make me wonder...how many of you guys would feel uncomfortable to be presented a topless model at a camera event to test out a new camera like the Fuji GFX 50 on?

Granted, it doesn't specify which event this was, but the problem is I see Fuji's move here is, even if the model was fine with it, I wouldn't quite be (but without flying into a rage). I come to a photo event to get a hands-on go at a new camera, not to see a surprise strip show where I least expect it. And why topless anyway? Plenty of models wear clothes during shoots. I feel like, had this not been voiced about, Fuji and other companies would be convinced that such things are normal and acceptable in corporate environments.

What do you guys think?
