Commercial Break: Condom mania as ads could hit tea-time TV
There’s been a minor furore over the new plans to show condom ads before the 9pm watershed. Can’t see what the problem with that is but the news coincides with the new ad for Lifestyle’s Skyn brand of johnnies – basically a piece of artfully-shot, borderline soft-bongo.
What kind of resemblance does that bear to real life? Eh? What is there in that ad for a budding Alfie Patten apart from just enough footage of a girl’s arse to get him in the mood?
It’s all wrong we tells ya. Condom commercials peaked in 1991 with this one for Mates, which shows THE TRUTH about the whole sordid business of cock-balloon acquisition. It shall always be this way and let no smart-arse ad tell you otherwise.
