Too hot for telly

Pamela Anderson is desperate for money these days: it’s not clear where it’s all gone, but if she has to star in panto, a TV programme with Joe Swash and appear on the Jeremy Kyle Show then you know that finances aren’t exactly tip-top. Her latest effort is an advert promoting an Australian web domain company called Crazy Domains, which is apparently so raunchy that it was banned from TV.

In fact, if you watch the video (and thanks to the wonders of YouTube, you can), it’s a fairly tame fantasy clip, where a bored IT worker imagines Pammy and her (hotter) cohort writhing around covered in cream before being snapped out of it in time to explain what the ad is for. On the subtlety scale it’s like using a neutron bomb to crack a walnut, but at least now they can wail and scream about feminazis stopping a bit of harmless fun, while raking in the cash from the ‘controversy’ they planned in the first place.

‘It's meant to be a cheeky, over-the-top depiction,’ said Fiona Jolly from Australia’s Advertising Standards Bureau. ‘But in the bureau's view it did cross the line.’
