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 …
Why the hell do people who watch Adult channels complain about nudity?!
Theres not enough of it IMO!
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.
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.
Re: just an accident?
Ah, OK. I'm always happy to defer to an expert.
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.
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!
No tits for you or for Britain until you learn punctuation.
His missus came in, caught him watching it, and made him complain.
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.
What complete and utter bollox
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?
/in anticipation of Ms. Bee running a book on how many references to Paris will this one will raise...
Bare Tits Project
Kudos for coming up with the name, but it should have been thought of while the movie was still current.
RE: Grease Monkey
Some are just genius, others really shouldn't have bothered having names.
Shaving Ryan's Privates is a classic
A title is required for this post about titles.
My favourite * was "Black Cock Down: Leave no Man's Behind!".
* favourite for the title, you understand.
Will have to rent that =]
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...
Right to be offended
Who do I complain to about the fact that some people are just too stupid to be allowed access to a TV remote control?
if the ASA are offended by tits at 6.40AM then dont look in the mirror in the morning while getting ready for work !!!
BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL A BUNCH OF ...........
To update a hackneyed old saying......
1080p video, or it didn't happen.
The chap was lucky
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.
Forgive my ignorance
But who the hell is Christine Bleakley?
I have nothing against small wild birds....
and I'm surprised that the ASA has. Besides making wild birds wear clothing would get you in trouble with the RSPCA wouldn't it?
Ron Jeremy for Pope!
Who remembers The Coldtits Story?
...Escape form castle Coldtits?
Looks like this time
it was GTFO
They have obviously never seen European satellite channel before..... I swear I saw porn on a kids channel once!!
that was just an advert for shower gel.
Ah, the old "Fa" ads...
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.)
Re: He could have been a night shift worker
Doesn't have to be a chap at all, come to that (tee hee she said 'come').
Bone Her. Heh.
'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.
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.
And back to my pipe and slippers I go.........
My favourite title
The Dwarf and the Seven Cinderellas. Not that I ever saw the flick, it would probably have offended me.
re: favorite title
Over on THIS side of the pond, my fave title is...
"Yank my doodle. It's a dandy" *
Who watches this stuff on TV any more ?
Haven't they heard of the internet ?
Title that made me chuckle
I always liked the title - Jurassic Poke.
Not sure I'd want to watch the move though.
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!"...)
