Chanel Commercial Banned from Children's Television


This just seems like a case of, "who in their right mind would put this commercial on during Ice Age 2?" Seriously, I don't think any little kids are going to be rushing out to buy luxury fragrances anytime soon, much less be affected by "overtly sexual" tones in the commercial, but come on TV people, this is just silly.

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY's Chanel Coco Mademoiselle advert has been banned from children's television after the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) deemed it too "sexually suggestive" for young viewers.

In the advert for the perfume the actress is shown being photographed on a bed, baring her shoulders for the camera and seeming to be wrapped only in a sheet.

The complainant, who saw the "overtly sexual" ad during the film Ice Age 2, challenged whether it was suitable to be broadcast during a film aimed towards children. Read More
