Diesel’s “Be Stupid” Campaign Banned

UK’s Advertising Standards Authority has banned a number of Diesel’s new “Be Stupid” advertisements.

“The ASA said the racy ads were indecent, could be seen by children and might encourage bad behavior. But Diesel said that the ads weren’t offensive and “did not contain any provocative nudity beyond the usual amounts shown in many swimwear, sportswear or lingerie ads.”

The Huffington Post

Although these ads are seen as inappropriate and racy to some, it actually won the Grand Prix Lion for the outdoor category at the recent Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. That’s kind of a big deal…

I can see how some people may see these ads as offensive, but I think it appeals to Diesel’s target audience. People who buy Diesel clothing are often risqué and flirtatious.

What do you think?

Current Blackberry Background 12/11

Today while flipping through the new British Vogue at work, I took a picture of the advertisement for Jil Sander’s new perfume featuring Julia Restoin-Roitfeld.

I don’t even know how many pictures I have of her on my phone and my computer. But this one is the perfect background.
