Renault Twingo Ad Too Hot For Italian TV

Posted in Bizarre, Funny Videos, Renault by Kurt Ernst | December 20th, 2010 | 3 Responses |

It sounds like Italy is getting nearly as puritanical as the United States when it comes to what’s acceptable for prime-time broadcasting. Apparently, an implied lesbian encounter (complete with light bondage) is too over-the-top for a country that used to show hard-core porn on TV after hours. Odd double standard, but no stranger than the U.S., where nudity is strictly forbidden but any one of a hundred TV evangelists will ensure your place in heaven for the low, low monthly price of $29.95. Personally, I only consider one of those things obscene.

As the story goes, this ad was pulled from prime-time television viewing by both RAI and Mediaset, but not by Sky. Enjoy, but don’t expect too much adult content from this PG-13 Renault ad. On the other hand, it does present an ingenious option for stealing a car, so maybe we should be taking notes.

    Next thing you know they’ll be like us and show tv movies of a guy about to blow someone’s head off but they bleep the four letter word. “Now kids, it’s ok to shoot someone in the mouth just don’t cuss ok.”
