Lingerie advert banned from Australian television

A lingerie advert has been banned from Australian television by censors for being too sexist.  The Advertising Standards Board upheld a complaint about it being in poor taste.

The clip features a woman in underwear walking into a garage to ask a worker behind the counter 'can you fit me?'

Created by Crisp Advertising in North Adelaide, its message was designed to convey that Innerware Lingerie offered free bra fittings.

But the board ruled that the content breached a section of the advertising standards code which stipulates that 'advertising or marketing communications shall treat sex, sexuality and nudity with sensitivity to the relevant audience,' reported The Australian.

'The board considered that the advertisement did have a strong sexual suggestion with the combination of the woman wearing lingerie, her sexualised strutting, the focus on her body and the sexualised conversation,' the case report said.

As is usually the case, you can bet the complaint came from either some fat, ugly, smelly dyke wearing work boots, or from some fat ugly skank who couldn't get any attention even in an all-male prison with a fist-full of pardons.

@2;26 - you will never get a girlfriend with that attitude of yours. Go back and jerk off in your parent's basement to a picture of Ann Coulter. Dimwit.

Well, given that I have seen the advert here in Tennessee, USA, I'd have to say that the campaign worked. A worldwide campaign courtesy of the lib pansies. And for free outside the local broadcast area.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives.
