"The Hard Sell" : Taboo In Advertising
Entertainment often gets a pass when it comes to banning because people have come to expect a little deviance from creative folks. But apparently this ad for the 2002 movie "The Rules of Attraction" hit too close to home when it released an ad of copulating teddy bears and other stuffed animals. It was banned and the movie went with different artwork for the film. But don't fret. I'm sure the animals lived happily ever after and engaged in many more acts of pleasure after censorship.
