Nudity and Mouthwash: Adverts you won't see in the US

My adverts you won't see in the US series was inspired by the below ad, which I first saw last winter. I thought I had lost it for good, but apparently it boosted sales over 9%, so it's back on the telly! I bring you the Corsodyl Mint Mouthwash ad 'Gorgeous' (warning: does contain nudity):

The ad actually starts thirty seconds in. Enjoy!

  1. So funny...so why won't you see it in the US. The nudity or the humour?

  2. Yes, cracks me up EVERY time I see it.

    It's the nudity that would never be allowed in a US ad.

    But something about the juxtaposition between a beautiful, even erotic woman and mouthwash is so ridiculous and odd; that makes it feel non-American to me, too. But what do my other American readers think?
