Quite unbelievably, Four Seasons Condoms released a commercial to advertise its condoms from Australia, according to the New York Daily News on Monday, which was allegedly intended for television advertising. The advertisement has been quite appropriately banned from television.
So what was it about the condom commercial that was found to be too sexy or racy for the public viewers? Just about everything in the commercial from the opening lines where a female pharmacy store’s assistant asks the man – of the condom-shopping couple in the commercial – what size he wants to the closing line in which a male pharmacist at the store tells the couple to “come again.”
Between those lines are visuals of the couple having sex – without showing any private parts, of course. But still, from every direction, the couple is having sex to basically “test drive” the rubbers that the long-haired blond man in trying on. Incredibly, the couple samples the condoms on the pharmacist’s counter, in the store’s aisle, and on the floor.
Of course, it makes it difficult to believe that any company would ever expect to get such a commercial approved for airing on public television in most countries - including Australia and the United States.
