Draftfcb condemns eye-vagina ad as a fake
[Note: This ad has been exposed as a fake. See the update below.] We've rotated this S.C. Johnson ("A family company") ad from Draftfcb Indonesia by 90 degrees to make it somewhat less NSFW. See the original after the jump. "Do you know what your kids are watching?" asks the copy at the bottom. "Parental guidance is needed in every access to TV and Internet. Keep your kids' eyes away from pornography." The great thing about the eye-vagina, of course, is that it's all-purpose—it can also be pro-pornography, as seen in this controversial Bulgarian billboard for Penthouse magazine. Via Copyranter. UPDATE: Draftfcb says the ad is a fake—that while it did originate from someone at the agency, it was not presented to or approved by agency management or the client. Says a rep: "The person who uploaded from his personal email account had neither client nor agency approval; he violated our corporate policy, and is no longer with the agency."
