Whats going on with these ad bans in the UK? Firsk L’Oréal UK snitched on Dior, now the UK Advertising Standards Authority has its panties all in a bunch about the latest Coco Mademoiselle commercial.
See the commercial and what the ASA had to say after the break.
Chanel has the UK advertising police on its ass about the latest fragrance ad featuring Keira Knightly. In the too-long-to-keep-our-attention ad Keira traces her nude neckline with the perfume then heads to a photo shoot where she gives the photographer a little striptease. There’s no nip or ass in the commercial, but the ASA deemed it too sexy for children under the age of nine. How’d the ad get associated with children? Apparently someone snitched to the ASA after the commercial aired during a broadcast of “Ice Age 2.”
What do you think: Too hot for kid TV or is society overreacting?
