Nestle Drumstick Ad Over Sexed


Flickr user Cardhouse saw this ad for Nestle Ice Cream Drumstick and thought it was bit bit overcharged sexually and wrote, "I don't know ... perhaps it's just me ... but reading this little 'ad slogan' juxtaposed next to Ms. Overt Sexuality here somehow reminds me that advertisers are complete assholes." That may be true but we all know there's one incontrovertible rule in this business: sex sells. Lick that cream, baby!

If there's a kid out there that can understand the sexual inuendo here - then their parents are to blame - not the advertiser!

Magnum Ice Cream has been doing this for years in Europe. And the innuendo is far more overt.
