back to article ASA rules 'Bare T*Ts Project' ad offensive

The ASA has ruled that an ad for a smutty premium rate phone service breached taste guidelines after it was broadcast on a sex channel at 6.40am. The ASA recounts that the ad on the Tease Me 2 channel featured mock documentary footage titled The Bare Tits Project, and stated "In 2009 4 students went out to make a naughty …

I know it's not the ASA's remit but

How can they have the potential to cause offence, when a million plus pairs of Page Three tits are freely viewable to all and sundry every morning?

Re: I know it's not the ASA's remit but

I would expect the person was flipping through channels rather than naively watching an adult channel.

Why?

Because Page Three isn't a paid advert for a product?

The clue's in the name...

just an accident?

"I would expect the person was flipping through channels rather than naively watching an adult channel."

He was just flipping through the channels and hadn't noticed he was in the adult section after the 36th grot channel? channels 900 - 966 are all adult, 948 is in the middle and there are 36 channels before it to flick through.

Not in all cases...

Whilst visiting a friends house, I was flipping through the channels on their Virgin Media box to find something for my kids to watch. I was somewhat surprised to find that the Adult channels appear in the list BEFORE the kids channels.

Okay?

So some sad bloke sat up (or woke up) at some ungodly hour of the day flicked on his sky / virgin media box and blame saw a gob load of tits on screen then found it to be tasteless.... Personally I think the person in question needs shooting...

I am starting the movement of MORE TITS FOR BRITAIN! (unless you could our current government!).

whos with me!

Hmm yes well.

Yes well punctuation not one of my strong points I'm afraid. But nevertheless I am sure somewhere on the inter-webs, exists a watchdog group that will pounce on my inability to punctuate my sentences and forthrightly bludgeon me to death with a large wet kipper.

That's not right...

I paid for the damn channel *because I wanted to see nudity* so can I now pursue Ropert 'Smut-Merchant' Murdoch for a refund?

Bare Tits Project

Kudos for coming up with the name, but it should have been thought of while the movie was still current.

A title is required for this post about titles.

RE: AC

I don't know if this is a real one or not, but in the film "40 days and 40 nights", when the main protagonists friend is clearing out his porn collection, the box on the top clearly has the title "In Diana Jones and the Temple of Poon".

I'd have gone the other way...

I'd have turned that title into the WereBitch Project, about men in the woods who discover a wolf that turns into a sex mad woman every full moon.

Don't look at me like that. No, don't. It's not my fault if my time working for an porn factory broke my brain...

that he found some grot at that time of the morning. Loads of naked boobs or Christine Bleakley's legs, I know which I'd rather rub one out to. And it's not CB's legs.

He could have been a night shift worker

Doesn't have to be a chap who likes his cornflakes with a dollop of onanism.

Oh, and if we're doing this: Bone Her, featuring a climactic chariot^h^h^h^h^h^h^h wheelbarrow race (filmed at Walthamstow dog track.)

'why were they looking'

in general its the competitor channels who complain.

at least that was the answer I found when I read on the net (ofcom ruling) about a channel showing 'a little bit too much flesh' at about 2am.

well

If thats the worst there is to complain about all is well

Offended by a natural item (boobs) - whoever was should just be shot

I'm offended by the constant lies, half truths and stupidity that is allowed by the ASA

Could just have easily been a kid

Yes I know that if the worst thing your child happens across is a naked body then you really have nothing to worry about, and that said channels can usually be locked in some fashion, but from the regulators point of view they do have to assume a worst case scenario (Daily Mail headline style).

I'm not saying it's right, but that's the way it is.

Youth of today....

.... don't need to casually channel flip to see tits, the google images search for tits does quite nicely.

Besides have you watched MTV et all recently? More flesh on show than a butchers window.

The Dwarf and the Seven Cinderellas. Not that I ever saw the flick, it would probably have offended me.

Tease Me

Rather than ASA adjuduications, you want to be reading the Ofcom Broadcast Bulletins.. The various Tease Me channels have featured in almost every one recently due to excessive rudeness in the programmes - I'm hardly surprised that the ads are getting in trouble too. (And if anybody wants some almost-SFW free titillation, the bulletins go into graphic detail about what was being said and done one-screen - if you boss complains, you can say "hey look, it's an official Ofcom document!"...)
