So, this is the ad that has FOX and ABC's panties all in a bunch?
This is the newest advertisement for Lane Bryant which was censored by FOX and ABC for being too sexy. In a post removed from the company's website, they wrote that FOX "demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of American Idol, but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy."
How? This is even tamer than the Victoria's Secret ads they play every commercial break. But don't you worry, Lane Bryant noticed this too.
"While it's no secret that Victoria's Secret ' The Nakeds' ads are prancing around on major networks leaving little to the imagination, steaming up TV screens and baring nearly everything but their souls, our sultry siren who shows sophisticated sass is somehow deemed inappropriate … Does this smack of a double standard? Yep. It does to us, too," said the original blog post.
So what do you think? Is this a case of Lane Bryant being too sexual or ABC and FOX being hypocritical?
