What a deliciously clickable headline that is. Dagens Media notes that Adland has been banned by Google, for having nudity on the site. Specifically for a Sloggi ad from 2004 campaign as Googles mail states here. We find this to be hilarious right now, especially after we posted about big brands like Interflora still advertising on Kissie's homophobic hate-speech Nazi promoting blog because she apologized. Sorta. Moral of the story: hate speech okay, writing about sexist ads and depicting them, not okay.
