Ad seeking porn extras shockingly misleads

Pornstarfish

Leave it to the U.K.'s Ad Standards Authority, whom I almost consider family at this point, to offer the least sexy reasons possible for banning an ad seeking porno-film extras. Here's the deal: A British man saw the ad in an adult magazine. It promised: "Act out your fantasies on film, Earn Big Bucks. Adult movie xtras needed now!" He paid a bunch of money up front, but never got any work. So, he complained to the ASA, which sided with him. A spokesman said: "Because the ad did not make clear that significant financial outlay would be required, whether for guarantees for film shoots as the complainant said he had been told, or for marketing and advertising on the Xtreme Red Web site, as alleged by the advertiser, it was likely to mislead." Don't feel too bad for the guy. He might get work someday. Keep an eye out for his name in titles like Sexy & Gullible and Credulous Craig's Cheerleader Beach Party.
