Hypocrisy + Idiocy = Candies Safe Sex PSA

bristol_palin_situation_candies_psa.jpg

We must say, we have to agree with AgencySpy on this one. OMG! Did we just say that? Yes we did. Why? Because we hate the new Bristol Palin/The Situation PSA from the Candies Foundation touting safe sex.

Upon watching this commercial, AgencySpy wrote, "After watching this, I want to punch my computer in the face, hop on a plane, punch the fucking Situation in the face, hop on another plane, punch Palin in the face, then shoot myself in the face so I never have to experience this monstrosity again."

It's that bad. It really is. It's hypocritical. It's poorly written. It's poorly acted. It's inane. It's painful to watch. Seriously, don't even bother to watch it. If you do, you'll hate yourself for the rest of the day. You have been warned.

Beyonce Too Sexy For British TV

beyonce_heat_almost_nude.jpg

Beyonce's commercial, which launched earlier this year, for her fragrance Heat has been banned (during the day) by the UK's Advertising Standards Authority for being "too sexually provocative" and because her dress is continuously "slipping away" during the ad.The ad must air in nighttime dayparts only.

The standards body has a point. Beyonce, with her dress unbuttoned to her waist, her breasts almost fully exposed, her body seductively gyrating, her voice crooning desirously...is basically saying, "I'm hot and you know you want to fuck me."

Not exactly the type of message that's appropriate for everyone.
