According to The Wall Street Journal (wsj.com), Does Beyonce’s new perfume ad go too far?
The spot recently aired on British TV, but has since been restricted to airings after 7:30 p.m. in the wake of complaints about its sexual imagery. (It reportedly drew 14 objections, which doesn’t sound like a whole lot to Speakeasy. It’s also unclear how many of those complaints were from disgruntled former members of Destiny’s Child.)
In the commercial, for “Heat” fragrance, a glistening Beyonce–who looks like she may need antiperspirant more than perfume–wears a red dress with a plunging neckline, sings a sultry version of “Fever” and raises the temperature of everything she touches. In other words, it pretty much looks like every video Beyonce has ever made.
Really? Is this commercial that bad? Tell Us what you think?
