Nudity Doesn't Always Equal Sexy in Advertising

Wow. Could this potentially sexy ad be any less sexy and more pedestrian that it is? To promote its full body blow dryer, Triton created a video featuring a nude model in her bathroom taking a shower and then drying off. While all this imagery is happening (nude and possibly NSFW), an announcer drones on about how the product saves on towel usage, doesn't spread germs, makes for less laundry, reduces harmful humidity, warms you on a cold winter morning and makes drying the kids and pets fun.

Hmm, apparently every ad doesn't have to be innuendo-laden and over the top objectifying of women to actually convey a commercial message. Who knew?

that's just bad marketing I guess - I mean it's like selling groceries to the gardner.

I don't understand how this is supposed to be non-sexual nudity. Watch it carefully--while they never show the prohibited bits there is a lot of just barely missing them. The first time as she's walking out of the shower is probably justified, the rest serve no purpose other than to be sexy.

Nudisty, done right, should be allowed on regular TV commercials.
AQs lonf as there is no lewd language or sex act, anyone should be able to be nude in a TV or print ad, from 2 to 102 years old, male or femals, or both.

I fully agree that nudity should be permitted. I see no reason to censor language, either. I'm just saying that I don't see how this is supposed to be non-sexual--they are obviously showing every bit of skin they can get away with.
