Blog: "Fake" Sprite sex ad banned
Olly Wehring | 24 July 2009
Youtube has hastily pulled an unofficial advert for Sprite, in which a girl quenches her thirst with the Coca-Cola Co soft drink after supposedly performing oral sex.
Made in Germany, the ad depicts a naked girl performing what appears to be oral sex on a man. She stops to get a Sprite, and the ad cuts to a shot of her sucking a Sprite bottle until it explodes over her face.
The fake advert was reportedly produced at the home of MTV director Max Issacson.
Sprite owner The Coca-Cola Co. has maintained it had nothing to do with the ad. Youtube pulled the advert this week, following a "third party" request.
A quick trawl of the Interweb - for professional reasons, of course - resulted in us finding the offending item. Should you do the same, make sure the kids are in bed first. If you're easily offended, don't say you weren't warned!
