Wife-standing-on-penis ad bothers Australia


The most-complained-about Australian ad of the year?

The ad was "screened on high rotation during the M-rated noon to 3 p.m. time slot in talk shows and during midday movies," according to a local report. So, no wonder it got 220 complaints. AMI is no stranger to controversy. On the contrary—it thrives on it.
