Campaigners say Swiss bunny girl advert 'promotes animal sex'
Image of g-string superimposed onto a rabbit courts controversy
Tuesday 22 April 2014
An advert for a Swiss shopping centre that features a g-string superimposed onto a rabbit has been criticised for promoting animal sex by campaigners.
The Easter poster campaign, used to promote a new shop opening in Basel, Switzerland, has courted controversy for depicting a subversive bunny girl with red underwear photoshopped onto a rabbit.
Critics say the animal is sexualised by the image, which links to bestiality and amounts to animal abuse.
Daniel Bader from a Swiss animal protection group told the Tages Anzeiger newspaper: From our point of view, the respect of the rabbit has been badly damaged.
This is a clear sexualisation of an animal. As far as I'm concerned, it heads in the direction of bestiality and it stinks of promoting animal sex and the sexual abuse of animals.
But the manager of the shopping centre that displayed the image has hit back at critics.
He told Central European News that images of attractive women in bunny ears and fluffy tails were were clichéd, and that he wanted to do something different by using a real bunny.
A Swiss PR guru, Klaus J. Stoehlker, said the image was damaging to the lingerie company.
If I was the boss of that Italian lingerie company I would take action over this advertising, he said.
I mean, who wants to see their sexy underwear stuck on such a fat rabbit backside?

Doesn't make me want to put the wood to a rabbit.
If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.
A nude rabbit is just fine for Cadbury, but paint a g-string on one and it suddenly screams "fuck me"?
I thought the Europeans were less prude, have the tides suddenly shifted? Are we going to have more topless beaches soon in the US(please say yes magic 8-ball), we already got not one but 2 Amsterdam-like States...
Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
and drag down the features of age,
no folds or creases from unkempt wear
eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
Europe has gone way down into the cesspool of false political correctness.
Head in the gutter by these freaks.
It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.
