Neville: You forget how prudeish we are over here in the U.S. I could just see the headlines as teachers and local county governments are shocked and outraged :-)

Remember that in the US we have TV specials that show the 'dirty' European television commercials that we can't see over here.

A few years ago Microsoft was in a similar situation with an ad that was created for the Swiss market. Becuase of the global audience available online, the commercial soon became available in the US. The commercial was very quickly pulled. But of course you can still find it online:

Until you explained it was a condom wrapper, I wouldn't have known that. I still don't know that. It possibly looks like the edge of a printed handkerchief to me. The world seems to be dividing up into the hypersexualised and those (like me) who really don't care to see everything in sexual terms.

To be honest, I'd be happy to see such things suppressed, not because I think them immoral or sinful, but because I get bored living in such a hypersexualised world.
