"The Hard Sell" : Taboo In Advertising
Here's another case of the British government having their panties in a wad and taking life a little too seriously. This ad from bookmaker Paddy Power showing a man breastfeeding was banned before it ever saw the light of day in fear it would offend the masses. The ad was created to promote their new online bingo business. I'm sure this image is frightening to the average man and that there are a few men on the board who banned it so it's not a huge shock it would be nixed.
