Dita Von Teese’s racy Renault ad banned in Britain
Sydney: A racy new commercial for the Renault Clio featuring burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese has reportedly been banned from daytime TV in Britain.
The latest ad for the French brand is causing controversy in the UK, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
The brand has enlisted big-name celebrities for its television spot.
Audrey Hepburn, Marlon Brando, David Bowie and Rihanna all appear in the ad, called ‘Va Va Voom’ by the car maker.
But it is only the ad’s other star, Von Teese, causing the stir.
The burlesque star reportedly shows too much skin for daytime TV and the spot has reportedly been restricted to adults-only hours.
