Three out of Four aint bad

Usatoday reports this summers most provocative ads that were pulled due to heavy complaints.

Three out of the four mentioned are already on Adland.

The 2001 Nebraska State Fair upset some parents with sassy billboards and posters, especially one with the silhouette of a cow and an invitation to residents to "Engage in heavy petting" at the fair's petting zoo.

Another board takes on veteran acts, such as crooner Engelbert Humperdinck, booked to perform at this year's fair, which runs through next Monday. "See bands you thought were dead," the cheeky billboard says.

also listed - the J.C. Penney ad that was pulled within 4 days. " You can't go to school looking like that like that."
