SUPERMODEL Candice Swanepoel yesterday called her latest ultra-hot shoe advertisement – which got banned in New York – “just another day in the office”.
Both the television and print advertisements from the model – who originally comes from Durban, but now living in The Big Apple – got banned for being “too sexy”.
Forget Lady Gaga’s Fame Fragrance campaign (which sees the pop star fully nude with itsy-bitsy men running all over to cover her private parts) – Swanepoel’s blue-lit advert resembles a sex party.
With luminous red lipstick, her hair pulled back and in nothing but black knee-high strap boots, Swanepoel walks into a dark room, sits down and watches people engaging in sex on multi TV screens, before she engages in a fully naked orgy of her own.
If the suggestive music does not raise temperatures, the sight of Swanepoel writhing around in a bed and then on a couch with chiselled men will.
The New York Post reported that aside from the huge banner of the advert, which is also in September magazines, being banned by the Madison Avenue building, even the PG version of the advert was considered to be too smutty for the backseat of a New York taxi as it was “rejected” by “city taxi rear-seat TVs”.
In March street wear brand Zoo York’s advert featuring 20-year-old US model Kate Upton was banned by MTV and Adult Swim Network because of an “erect nipple” and some uses of profane language
