It's ironic that the same country that sets regulations to censor ads this way might actually reject this one because they think it borders sataire.
I'm glad they approved it. It's not such a bad campaign.CHANGE is an international upscale brand providing quality lingerie, swimwear and homewear. The objective of the ad was to announce the launch of CHANGE in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The ads' main focus is to utilize the concept behind censorship in Saudi Arabia to pull focus on the Brand's product line and to transform censorship into art. The ads are all in English, as they target an upscale bilingual audience.
