Too bad it was against the rules in most countries
Really? What countries? [/b][/quote]
I'm not sure in which countries, but this was in an article:
John Beyer, director of Mediawatchuk, called for an immediate ban of the image;
"The companies involved clearly release these kind of pictures to create as much publicity as possible, but it's a thoroughly unpleasant and irresponsible tactic. We can't simply ignore them.
Imagery showing young women in this way is extremely harmful to society, and should not be appearing in mainstream magazines.
The ASA has a duty to ensure that advertisements are decent, and this clearly isn't. It's deeply offensive and should be banned immediately."
I've heard that these kind of pictures are legal in Germany, though! :P
It's a silly time to learn to swim when you start to drown
