Witches' Brew: Networks Don’t Want You To See This Ad

Networks Don’t Want You To See This Ad

The folks over at ABC and Fox don’t want you to see this ad featuring curvy, thick'ems prancing around in their skivvies.

Retailer Lane Bryant says ABC restricted its airtime and refused to show the commercial during Dancing with the Stars. Fox demanded re-cuts of the ad and only aired it during the last 10 minutes of American Idol, but only after Lane Bryant threatened to pull the plug on its advertising dollars.

BTW, no one seems to have a problem running this new Victoria’s Secret ad…

Hmmmm…double standard much? What’s your call?

i don't see a double standard here. the Lane Bryant ad is more seductive than the Victoria Secret ad. the LB ad has the woman frolicking around a bedroom with sexy music on and leaving out with nothing on but a trench coat and underwear, while the VS ad is bouncy and upbeat and not focusing on the sexual aspect of the underwear. if the LB ad had thick chicks hopping around to bouncy music, then it would have been all good. IMO

DAMN! REAL women with REAL fuckin curves on the gringo stations?!! The Spanish-language stations are the only places in TV-landia where you can actually see women that don't have the bodies of prepubescent boys!

Lane Bryant do your thang!!! This country hates poor people, and people deemed overweight. The reality is that most women in America have a big behind here..a little pouch there. some love handles everywhere..
