Sprite Oral Sex Ad Banned In Germany (VIDEO)

Sprite Wants Us to Think It Tastes Like a Bodily Fluid

With all the sexually-charged commercials out there, I thought dirty ad executives could shock me no more. Well a proposed German commercial for Sprite has managed to upset my sensibilities once again by combining oral sex, a desire for Sprite, and a climactic finish. The ad crosses the line from racy to pornographic.

Creating a controversial commercial that ended up banned in Germany does create buzz for the brand. (They got us to talk about Sprite.) But I'm just not sure that comparing Sprite to semen is working for the product here. What do they want us to think? Semen — the taste that refreshes! NOT.

Sprite isn't the first company to have women perform sex acts on a product. Remember Burger King's ad in Singapore that had a woman attempting oral sex on a BK Super Seven Incher? Do you think the trend of pornographic ads will continue with success, or do you predict a backlash?

leslievanhouten, thanks for clearing that up. I thought this couldn't be a real German ad. For one thing, the Sprite can is different from the ones you get in Germany and the sentence at the end "Befolgen Sie Ihren Durst" isn't correct either (instead it should be "Gehorchen Sie Ihrem Durst" or "Folgen Sie Ihrem Durst"). Also, if this had actually been banned, the German press would have been all over it and their was nothing about this in the German media.

This is a spec ad and it was on Gawker. The BK one is real, but this was never meant to be broadcast.

Our general reaction may be a backlash but it seems to me that ad executives are now using our backlash as advertisement. They're not stupid, they know how to strategically work our emotions to their benefit. Yeah so the ad gets pulled but now the product knowledge reaches far more people than it would have if we never made a fuss.

That is the most ridiculous thing ever. I had to laugh, but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to think it's funny or sexy. Doesn't really make me want to go out an buy Sprite, as I find Coke to be much more refreshing than semen. Seriously though, I wonder who comes up with this stuff? It's like their marketing team is made up of 19 year old frat boys.
