Pam Anderson banned in Australia

Another Rant By: BettyJean

First we find Paris Hilton banned in Rio for cooling off on a cold can of Beer and now Pam Anderson is banned down under for being too sexing while selling internet services to a man with a wild imagination!

Pam is featured in a racy new commercial for online Australian company Crazy Domains playing a boardroom boss in a low-cut (of course) corporate suit.

But Pammy doesn’t keep her clothes on for long. As the subject of a male employee’s fantasy, the knockout ends up in a barely-there gold bikini writhing with her scantily-clad female “co-worker” played by brunette beauty Nicola Simpson.

If bikinis and beach babes aren’t enough, the Perth-based company douses the girls in milk and there’s even a provocative boob and butt bump bit that’s sure to inspire an Internet geek-out. (Or a Milli Vanilli moment.)

Apparently, some viewers aren’t so pleased with the in-your-face risqué nature of the ad. The Australia’s Advertising Standards Bureau has banned the commercial after receiving a flood of complaints which included:

“IT IS ALL ABOUT sex, got nothing to with domains, unless it’s to start a porn site.”

“The ad is misogynist. There is no connection between breasts and domain names, but the ad uses highly sexualized female bodies to sell its product.”

“It sends a terrible message to young women; namely what they look like has more bearing than their authority in the workplace.”

Crazy Domains defended itself by pointing out that the fantasy was never meant to be realistic, but the Advertising Standards Bureau president, Fiona Jolly, isn’t buying it. “It’s meant to be a cheeky, over-the-top depiction, but in the bureau’s view it did cross the line,” she told Australia’s Nine MSN news.

Now Crazy Domains’ managing director is calling foul and blaming “feminist bloggers” for the ban. http://www.stylelist.com/2010/03/03/pamela-anderson-racy-commercial-banned-in-australia/

 

When will women Groups here in the US wake up? We allow our media to continue to objectify our women and girls all day every day as if it were all a women were any good for. OH and God forbid a church or family group runs a save the family ad – then and only then will OUR WOMEN”S GROUPS come out as if the world is coming to an end but let them sexploit our women and girls all they want – OUR WOMEN”S GROUPS remain SILENT! Way to go American Women! Where is your voice? Only TMU has had to courage to three year runningto call out all the other groups about this and now other countries are doing something about it and here we sit.

SHAME on US!
