Most of you know by now I am a huge fan of controversial advertising. The more controversial the better. This is NSFW, NOT SAFE FOR WORK, unless if you work in an office like me where a filthy mind and questionable browsing history is more mandatory than it is frowned upon, then I rest my case. Kick back and watch the 1 minute advert.
Pamela Anderson has appeared in a UK TV advert dancing in a bikini, covered in what looks to be like champagne froth. In the ad for the web hosting service CrazyDomains.com.au, Pamela along with two other equally talented women are depicted in a boardroom filled with men, one of whom is fantasizing about the two dancing in bikinis as they’re splashed with a frothy liquid.
The advert which features an icky ejaculation pun at the end!!! – was initially approved to air after 9pm but has received numerous complaints. It has since been banned by the advertising Standards Authority for being “sexist” and “degrading towards women.”
Now, that is a little bit of an over reaction in my eyes, there are things that are a lot worse allowed to be aired on TV, but all in all it may just work in the companies favour to actually get spoken about more, like on this blog for example. I think its clever. Well done advertising team at Crazy Domains!
