As so often happens with Ranty Friday, this isn’t the post I was going to publish today. I have five Ranty Fridays in draft as lots of things recently have annoyed me so I start the posts and then publish them in turn. This week’s has been bumped. Because yesterday I saw the above picture. Okay a picture that was taken in 2007 but that doesn’t make it any less wrong.
And it made me just stop and say “what the actual fudge”. Well I didn’t say fudge but I don’t want to offend people by really swearing on here.
How on earth could Dolce and Gabbana think this was an acceptable advert? Which ad agency thought that producing a photograph entitled “dolce-gabbana-ad-showing-a-woman-fully-clothed-in-a-tight-dress-and-spiked-heels-lies-on-her-back-hips-raised-as-a-bare-chested-man-holds-her-down-and-four-other-men-look-on” was fine for publication just five years ago?
And that actually many advertisers still feel it is acceptable to use women semi naked women in their adverts.
Words fail me
