Oops Patrol - Strip Tease BTYB Bigpond


I saw Bigpond have a sponsorship on Heavy.com - which is sort of an integrated thing.

Problem is - it seems to go across ALL video content on the site. Even strip teases as the screengrab shows.
I wonder if Heavy told Bigpond this was a possibility ...

Brilliant find, Ben!

Not such a good find after all it would seem. I watched the video from beginning to end I saw no stripping, no nudity, no removal of clothes and nothing of an explicit or adult nature. The girl danced on the spot in a singlet, strapless bra and panties - I find it difficult to imagine why this would cause such a stir (and I'm female!)

I've seen much worse on youtube.

good spot geek - i just went off the title Webcam Teen Strip Tease ...

I still doubt Telstra would be happy with this placement, regardless of whether the content doesn't live up to the title.

And yes, there's a lot worse on youtube!

I have always maintained that there is an association between where people see your ad and your brand

but.......

whether we like it or not perverts are consumers too. and lets face it 99% of guys are perverts.

sites like heavy whilst walking that fine line in general never cross it.

i think ppl are too hard on online especially when you consider that this content is no worse if not tamer than what you get on sex and the city during prime time

Eminem made the point that his music is often criticised yet hollywood get away with anything.

there is a double standard that seems to be in place and whilst networks have made us all wary, i think we need to take a deep breathe and not take it so seriously.
