More "banned", sexually themed ads.

For Sprite in Germany. What's most shocking about this one is how slick and cheesy it is. It's pretty clear that these are created knowing that they will be running on YouTube. I think we ned a term for the tired, sexually-explicit ads created to spread under the sensationalistic heading of "banned". These really aren't banned or controversial ads. They're spots created knowing that the target audience is male, young, online and responds well to this type of content.

I wonder how long before advertisers like Sprint are called out on this tactic. It really isn't any different than Camel cigarettes using a cartoon camel in their ads.



And a Dutch spot for coffee creamer.
