How many prudes does it take to spoil an advertising campaign? Just one, apparently.
There are conservatives, there are right wing extremists and then there is one member of Ireland's population who saw fit to complain about a Newbridge jewellery ad campaign. According to this poor unfortunate, the sight of Roz Purcell's "poses, facial expressions and clothing" were too provocative.
The ad poster and short video, in case you haven't seen them, depict the Irish model in a series of poses to showcase the latest range of jewellery from Newbridge. The pictures themselves wouldn't look out of place above the dinner table in a convent, while the video showcases Purcell's modelling talent in an eye catching, but tasteful manner.
After one solitary complaint from an unnamed individual the ad was canned. Money, time and a lot of effort went down the toilet to appease the conscience of a disgruntled nay sayer.
