Morning Show Poll: Is This Banned Lingerie Ad Too Hot For TV?
A new lingerie ad in Australia is taking some heat for being too racy and has since been pulled from the airwaves.
In the 33-second spot for the Australian company Innerware Lingerie, a woman dressed only in her undergarments and high-heels struts into an auto shop and asks the worker “can you fit me?” as the other workers gawk and stare.
The commercial was meant to convey the company’s offer of free bra fittings, but the ad has been pulled by Australia’s Advertising Standards Board for complaints that it’s “degrading and demeaning to women” and includes “a level of sexuality and nudity which is not appropriate,” reports the Huffington Post.
After the ad was banned, the company’s execs Evan and Tina Zorba altered the risque images and released a more appropriate version that’s now airing on TV.
“The idea was about having fun with it, we didn’t want to offend anyone, it was a bit cheeky,” said Evan Zorba according to the New York Daily News.
