Is New Zealand’s “Get It On” AIDS Ad Too Sexy For TV?

Yes, this “Get It On” ad from the New Zealand AIDS Foundation is a little disturbing. Fingers jumping around pretending to be little penises wrapped in condoms? We’ve had nightmares described exactly like so. But is the ad — which has been airing on Kiwi TV sets since September — is now being dubbed “offensive, unacceptable and breached decency.”

At least by those filing complaints about it. But wisely, the Advertising Standards Authority there says otherwise, and will let the ad continue airing because it carries an important health message: Get your freak on, just be sure to wrap things up first.
