Yes, it’s true, sex sells, but can an advertisement be too sexy? Readers, I’m sure some of you out there can’t fathom this “too sexy” notion, but apparently the British Authorities are all over it. Recently, they banned a hot and steamy ad for Ryanair, a discount airline that was promoting their Red Hot Fares with a Red Hot Mama dressed in Lingerie.
After numerous complaints, and an online petition filed by one of their employees, Ryanair was forced to take down their ads.
Did the advertising work despite the removal? Yes, of course. I don’t think I would have even heard of this airline without the controversy. Am I offended by this ad? That’s a tough one. So tough in fact, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Reader, do you think this ad is banned to the bone?
