A few months back, ABC and FOX refused to play a beautiful and tasteful Lane Bryant Commercial. The lingerie is quite lovely and the modeling of the lingerie was very tasteful. So why deny it?? Here is the commercial...
Here is what Lane Bryant had to say:
“We knew the ads were sexy, but they are not salacious. Our new commercials represent the sensuality of the curvy woman who has more to show the world than the typical waif-like lingerie model. What we didn’t know was that the networks, which regularly run Victoria’s Secret and Playtex advertising on the very shows from which we’re restricted, would object to a different view of beauty. If Victoria’s Secret and Playtex can run ads at any time during the 9pm to 10pm hour, why is Lane Bryant restricted only to the final 10 minutes?
While it’s no secret that Victoria’s Secret “The Nakeds” ads are prancing around on major networks leaving little to the imagination, steaming up t.v. screens and baring nearly everything but their souls, our sultry siren who shows sophisticated sass is somehow deemed inappropriate. The network exclaimed, she has “too much cleavage” Gasp!
Does that make sense to you? It doesn’t to us either.
Does this smack of a double standard? Yep. It does to us, too.”
I think it was a great video. What do you think?
