Risque Commercials on American T.V.

There’s already been one post about that infamous Samuel Adams “home video” commercial, but recently I saw the latest Herbal Essence commercial, and I was taken back. There’s a bit in it that is a blatant “cum shot” take. It’s got a woman sitting there watching the “organic experience” take place, and all of a sudden, white foam just sprays her in the face. I know Europeans have had some rather risque commercials for a long time, but is America ready for this kind of thing? Especially during daytime television.

I think some of that is in the eye of the beholder. I’ve seen that commercial many times. I hadn’t picked up on that aspect.

Then again, I have led a sheltered life.
