‘Horny’ Hawkins ad ban

Saw this ad on a wall in town the other day. It just had the word “horny?”. At the time I didn’t notice that the toy Jennifer is holding is a rhino.

Actually I don’t think I noticed she was holding a toy.

The banned ad.

The banned ad.

New Zealand airport officials deny they lack a sense of humour, despite banning a billboard with a lacy bra-clad Jennifer Hawkins clutching a stuffed rhino with the caption: “Feeling horny?”

The lingerie ad featuring Australia’s former Miss Universe was declined by Auckland International Airport, which felt it was a “step too far”.

“The bottom line is the airport has a vast array of people of different nationalities, different ages, and our view was that it was just not in keeping with general airport image and brand,” the airport’s general manager retail Nick Forbes told NZPA.
