Striptease Ad Should Have Been Shown After Work, Say Angry Viewers
THOUSANDS of viewers have contacted the advertising standards watchdog demanding a controversial striptease ad be shown the minute they get home from work.
The Advertising Standards Agency said the commercial, which depicts a woman performing a striptease while dressed in a school uniform, was shown at 'inappropriate' times during the day, when no-one would have been around to appreciate it.
Tom Logan, a trainee solicitor from London, contacted the ASA stressing he had not yet seen the advert, but that it sounded both 'sexually provocative' and 'excellent'.
He added: "This advert has been shown during the day, when young children could have been watching and I was at work.
"For the love of God would you please think of the children and show this advert between 7 and 8pm so that I have time to get home and dig out a fresh tube sock."
Wayne Hayes, a financial adviser from Reading, said: "Apparently this advert is for chocolate or fabric softener, or possibly car insurance. The point is, no-one knows and no-one cares."
He added: "It's art and it should not be tainted with the foul stench of commerce.
"This young lady should be free to express herself, preferably at around 7pm, before I've had my tea."
