Rozanna Purcell’s new video campaign for Newbridge Silverware has been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland (ASA) who said the video was "exploitative of sexuality".
The video, which was aimed to attract a younger generation to the Irish brand, was styled by Irish stylist, Courtney Smith.
Courtney took to her Instagram page to voice her disgust at the decision to ban the advert: “I’m shocked that at this day in age Ireland can still be so backwards. This incredible shoot I did for a new younger Newbridge collection called EShe was in the press today after being complained about to the ASA for being too overtly sexy! The shoot was actually inspired by Cuban dancers from the 1930s and 40s… It is meant to be sensual and evocative. The jewellery is still the main focus and I think it’s incredibly beautiful and can’t imagine how it would make people feel uncomfortable.”
Well it’s certainly not Amy Huberman setting a table but we think it looks gorgeous; Rozanna is stunning as always and we NEED that necklace!
This new Budweiser ad features possibly the cutest puppy who then grows into the most gorgeous dog…
His owner goes on a night out and doesn’t come back and we are left fearing the worst – but it’s not what you think…have a watch.
Really important and thought provoking.
Be prepared to experience all of the feels out there.
This is truly amazing.
Just when you thought adverts couldn’t get anymore cheesy, there’s this…
The Easthills shopping mall, presumably in America (sorry, but come on…) shows off all of the great things you can buy and do there, such as buy jeans and BACKPACKS!
And please, please, don’t forget the “haaaircut.”
Of course, this brought back those glorious memories of the very first time we ever saw How I Met Your Mother's Robyn singing and dancing her way through Let's go to the Mall.
Plus, it's another excuse to play it. Again, and again, and again.
The Made In Chelsea crowd are back and this time they’re in New York City!
As usual, the gang aren’t taking themselves too seriously in the new trailer for the upcoming season.
Staged an an advert for perfume, this is one season we cannot WAIT to see!
This is a real advert created by UNICEF to target the inhabitants of India who defecate in the open. About half the country’s population of 620 million people do not regularly use toilets, the charity says, answering the call of nature wherever they are.
The catchy song has been written by Shri who has created stunning compositions such as the theme for the film Life of Pi.
This new advert by Pedigree is by far the cutest and most clever we’ve seen.
Although all it does is feature many amazingly adorable dogs, there is some good thinking behind it.
If a video goes viral on YouTube, the money from advertising is shared with the video maker – in this case, Pedigree!
That’s right, all you have to do to give your bit to dogs in need is watch (and share) this video!
This video was shot in one single shot and features many familiar scenes from today’s culture. The video was made using no cuts or CGI and it is incredibly done.
The video is a promotion for the new Culture magazine with The Sunday Times and it certainly has our vote!

Swedish pharmacy brand, Apotek, bring advertising and technology together by creating adverts that are sensitive to when a train is approaching.

James Cordon takes on the streets of London for this feel-good advert for Cadbury’s where he lip-syncs to Estelle’s “Free” – we love it!
The actress is involved in Sodastream’s new campaign and this new ad was due to be released during the Superbowl on the Fox network in the US.
However, due to the reference at the end of the advert when Johansson says, “Sorry, Coke and Pepsi,” the ad has been banned and must be redone to remove competitors names.
Pepsi and Coke are big sponsors of Fox so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to Sodastream.
The ad centres around proving that Sodasteam is not only healthier but is less wasteful than other soda brands.
