0113/1425 June 2014Advertising Standards Bureau
Your advertisement has sexual pictures in it at an a inappropriate time. A lot of young children are not in bed at this hour. I think people can understand what type of "pictures" you are talking about by using words. Children may start asking parents questions about why the women were dressed like that and why the woman and man were on top of each other. It is inappropriate and as a teacher i think the images should be removed from the advertising. 6-6:30pm is a hour of dinner where family's sit around and spend time together possibly watching television.

Facebook app shows full page ad "get closer to a schick model now."
The page includes a Youtube video of a woman writhing around on a couch, walking and running around a house seductively in underpants and a t-shirt.
The t-shirt has a man's face pictured on the front. She lands on a bed and rips off her shirt, revealing another similar shirt (with a man's face pictured on the front.) Strip tease style, she progressively rips off more shirts, revealing others underneath. Finally towards the end of the ad, she goes to lift off the final shirt. As she lifts the shirt to reveal her bare stomach, the video pauses and a message "Click here to see what happens next" appears on the screen. The video then cuts to imagery of a razor and information about the product.
Those who click on the "click here to see what happens next" video will be directed to YouTube to see a new video called "We're revealing it all" where the model removes her shirt completely. View of her breasts are obstructed by various items as she poses seductively for the camera. The "photoshoot" is then shown to be 'finished' and she then leaves the room, topless, to go and speak to other production crew. Various items are strategically placed to obstruct the view of her breasts, however it is apparent that she is topless.
The app invites people to participate in a promotion called "Get Closer." The heading says "Have your face worn by a Schick model." By uploading your picture to the app, you can go in the draw to win a Schick grooming pack.
The text reads "1 in 20 personalised t-shirts and Schick grooming kits to be won. (Model not included)"
By entering the competition, participants choose which model they want to 'wear' the shirt in the online gallery.

The advertisement for Nestlé “Wonka/Cookie Creamery Chocolate Block” was broadcast on commercial television in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney during the period April 27th – May 17th 2014. It features an animation in which a family of six (grandparents, parents and children) sit around a table with a ‘Wonka’ book. The book suddenly flies into the sky scattering pages which are made of chocolate and the grandfather takes a bite of one of them. The grandmother is seen gardening, taking a bite out of roses made of chocolate. The family is seen sailing across the sky in a hot air balloon as rolling hills and a colourful castle are seen in the background. The word 'Scrumdiddlyumptious', floats across the sky, apparently made from chocolate. The final shot depicts the product “Wonka Cookie Creamery” and slogan “Live a little Wonka” and directs viewers to “Like Us on Facebook”.
