Pamela Anderson Ad Banned

Workplace-themed ad seen as degrading, sexist.

Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson is making waves in the advertising world. In an ad for who-even-knows-what (technically for Dreamscape Networks’s Crazy Domains, but we’re not sure we see the connection), Anderson interacts in a boardroom with coworkers as her assistant, an attractive woman in a less-than-there top and pink, lacy bra, pours cream in her coffee. A male coworker then proceeds to have an extensive fantasy–Anderson and her assistant rubbing up against each other in golden bikinis, dripping in cream. Britain's Advertising Authority banned the ad for being “sexist and degrading to women” after receiving four complaints. Crazy Domains said the fantasy isn’t pornographic and it depicts Anderson and her assistant as “attractive, dynamic and confident business people.”
