Neymar indicated in the caption that the photo is part of photographer Mario Testino’s “Towel Series.”

“Mario Testino Towel Series no. 150,” he wrote.

While there’s no denying the photo’s appeal, photographer Mario Testino has become controversial after being wrapped up on the wrong side of #MeToo.

Condé Nast ended their relationship with Testino and fellow fashion photographer Bruce Weber following a New York Times article compiling allegations of sexual exploitation from over 24 male models, many of which go back to the 1990s.
