"The Hard Sell" : Taboo In Advertising
This ad for an Irish television show called "Paisean Faisean" doesn't reveal much of the plot of the show, but it definitely seems accurate. This is exactly what a girl dressed by a boy would look like. Except this is a woman. A teacher. Apparently the Irish public was not so amused by it and the ad was banned after the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland received numerous complaints about it. Who knew the Irish got their panties in a bunch so easily? Pun most definitely intended.
