This BJ-Inspired Sprite Ad Is Just Icky
This oral sex-inspired Sprite commercial, which apparently was banned in Germany, is the most sexual advertisement we’ve ever seen. And it’s kinda icky, to boot. Definitely not safe for work…unless you work at Sprite, probably. UPDATE — MONDAY: For the record, this ad was allegedly produced for Sprite, but it’s unclear if it was actually ever APPROVED by them.
UPDATE — TUESDAY: John Jones IV, the male actor in the Sprite ad, told New York Press, “The funny thing is, it’s a spec commercial—it’s not even real.” He said racy spec ads like this one are intended to catch the eyes of executives.
Also, Jones said the racy Sprite ad was produced in Brooklyn—so it is unlikely it would have been banned in Germany, as alleged.
