Banned ads for Viagra

Whoa,

The U.S. doesn't ban Viagra ads when Rafel Palmiero advertises for Viagra. So, why does Brazil, the land of the Samba, wants to ban their Viagra ads with their legend Pele advertising for them?

According to Yahoo! news, the Brazilian government banned these ads because of the fear of excessive and inapproiate uses.

Even Brazilian kids get hooked to this stuff.

That Pele ad has run in Sweden for some time now - the most interesting part of it is that Rafel actually speaks a phrase of (accented) Swedish in the end. That was kinda cool. :) Who knew that he could speak swedish (even if it was just that line).

I find him an odd choice for the spokesperson though.
