NOT ACCEPTABLE IN OUR STREETS
In the streets of Copenhagen, cynical advertising people choose to try and capture their products audience with porn. They are aware that most young men that get shit faced every weekend on vodka and artificial energy, also are a generation brought up on hardcore porn. The words "The Party Maker" along with an image of a naked woman is just not even funny. It is also peculiar to think what went through the mind of the guy that made the deal with CULT to give them the space all around Copenhagen. Now that most of the advertising spaceses showing the ad has been destroyed, who covers this expense? Was the deal so good that it included a repair budget, knowing people of Copenhagen would get pissed off?
But then again, in Denmark there is Freedom of Speech and why care about what people feel. As long as it pays well and consumers are generated.
