Wonderbra Censors Own UAE Ad In Nod to Local Culture

Wonderbra_UAE.jpg

As an inside joke and in a nod to the United Arab Emerites' practice of censoring magazine content the government doesn't like, Wonderbra has turned the tables and censored its own ad but with a twist. Because the Wonderbra worn by the model in this ad apparently made her breasts so big, it took much more black marker than usual to cover her protruding breasts. In an insiderish manner, it illustrates the wonders a Wonderbra can provide while living within the boundaries of the country's censors.

Reminds me of a David Ogilvy statement in his Autobiography "The consumer is not a moron, she is your wife. Try not to insult her intelligence.

That trick could work even outside of the UAE.
