I swear, I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. This obviously is for foreign airing as it would NEVER air in the U.S.
Mo’Kelly is speechless. Mo’Kelly isn’t a prude, it’s just that Mo’Kelly will never look at balloon art the same away…EVER AGAIN.
The commercial is so “graphic” that I was uncomfortable watching it. And that says a lot!
Anyhow, without further ado…
Mo’Kelly’s not making a moral judgment, just curious to know how one goes about pitching this concept to the VP of advertising and how someone decides to market their product in this way. NOTED…it is a CONDOM company, but the ad is SOOOOOOO over the top that even a condom company would likely blush. Parallel, you might have seen the KY Jelly ads, which are more suggestive as opposed to over-the-top blatant.
(Then again, Mo’Kelly hasn’t seen the “international” versions of KY’s commercials either. They just might be equally over-the-top as Durex.)
I guess it comes down to the odd/questionable juxtaposition of balloon art (ostensibly children’s toys) and the blatant sexual acts. By no means is Mo’Kelly a “moralist” but there’s something to be questioned about such a juxtaposition. And since this is a “banned” commercial from what Mo’Kelly can glean…other folks agreed too. Your thoughts?
