Is this ad for fast food newcomer Carl’s Jr really all that bad?
The “sex sells” angle is as old as the hills and we see it in ads every night, so what’s different about this one?
The operator of the franchise, Russel Creedy of Restaurant Brands, appealed the rulings by both the Commercial Approvals Bureau and the Advertising Standards Authority to ban the ad in New Zealand.
Creedy appealed on the grounds that the ad would only air after 8.30pm, citing the amount of explicit content already on TV after that time.
Would you object to seeing this ad on TV?
