Beyonce’s commercial for her perfume Heat is a little too hot for officials from the U.K. Advertising Standards Authority. They’ve decided that it was just to damn sexy to be allowed to be shown before 7:30 PM. ðŸ˜†
We considered that Beyonce’s body movements and the camera’s prolonged focus on shots of her dress slipping away to partially expose her breasts created a sexually provocative ad that was unsuitable to be seen by young children.
Aren’t they just the most priggish gaggle of sticks-in-the-mud that you’ve ever heard of? Just kidding. See for yourself what they had a problem with younger children watching:
Beyonce’s Heat Commercial Is Too Hot For UK
Of course this is hardly a “Watershed moment” for either Beyonce’s first foray into the perfume industry or the BBC. If it had been for the latter, the commercial would not have been allowed to air before 9:00 PM. ðŸ˜‰
Of course I’m not going to pick on the British for refusing to air this extremely erotic commercial until slightly later in the evening. There’s no way it would be aired at all in the US without serious editing.
And it could be worse, a lot worse; Lady Gaga could make a commercial. There’s wouldn’t be enough hours in the night between Watershed and breakfast for them to make sure it aired late enough for the decency standards!
