The UK's ASA is well-known for their knee-jerk quashing of slightly porny or "controversial" ads, sometimes after receiving one or two complaints. But this banning is a new level nanny-ism.
That's 14-year-old actress Hailee Steinfeld (wonderful in "True Grit") sitting on railroad tracks waiting to—obviously—commit suicide. At least, that's what the ASA ruled.
The image is from a Miu Miu ad.
Previous noteworthy ASA bannings:
• Geisha violence.
• Racist Playstation ad.
• Dakota Fanning's vagina bottle.
• Gruesome "Last Exorcism" poster.
• Jesus-mocking mobile phone ad.
