U.K. – banned ads

Via: Huffington Post

*******

We like to joke that the U.K.’s Advertising Standards Agency is an old-fashioned complaint department, acting as a sympathetic ear to a small handful of pearl-clutching Brits.

But it turns out the agency, which specializes in banning (potentially) offensive ads, has fielded about 431,100 complaints in its 50-year history — that’s a lot of pearl-clutching. So which fashion ad has ignited the most controversy over the years?

Look no further than the ASA’s newly-released annual report, in which the agency happily reports its “top ten most complained about ads of all time.” There, nestled among the scaremongering PSAs and violent car adverts, is Sophie Dahl’s famous ad for Yves Saint Laurent Opium perfume, which made a splash back in 2000.
