Italy gives the finger to latest Tom Ford ad

Tom_ford_ad Women's Wear Daily reports that Italy's advertising watchdog has banned this Tom Ford ad, saying it’s “markedly vulgar,” “transcends the limits of simple bad taste” and “evokes an offending and abusive act against women, which degrades the dignity of the person.” In Ford’s view, no doubt, a great success.
