VIDEO: Lucy Pinder’s sexy Lynx ads were banned in the UK

Lucy Pinder, star of Strippers vs. Werewolves, is catching some heat for the ads she did for Lynx recently because they’re supposedly “degrading to women.” (See the print versions here and a behind the scenes video here.)

Once again the Advertising Standards Authority has dropped the hammer, stating…

“We considered that the various activities that Ms Pinder carried out were presented in a sexually provocative way, and that alongside the focus on Ms. Pinder’s cleavage … were likely to be seen as gratuitous and to objectify women.

We considered that was emphasised by the text ‘Can she make you lose control?’ … and the invitation to ‘Play with Lucy’, which we considered would also be seen as degrading to women.

We therefore concluded that the ads were likely to cause serious and widespread offence.”

The ASA also said that the language used on a poster was “clearly intended to imply that using the advertised product would lead to more uninhibited sexual behaviour.” Uh, YEAH!

What is going on in the UK? I thought pretty much anything goes over there, but with this, the ban of Dakota Fanning’s ad, and the ban of ads featuring skinny models, it’s almost like they’re turning into America… in the 1950′s.

Watch this video of Lucy doing something as innocent as washing a car and see if you think it should be banned?

And this video of Lucy just sitting on a couch watching some TV with a friend…

Oh my… what were we talking about again?
