Axe 'Angels' Ad Offends Christians
An Axe deodorant ad that features sexy angels has religious people up in arms. South Africa has banned a television commercial featuring angels falling from the sky and tossing away their haloes in order to get intimate with a guy wearing Axe. The gals fall from the sky in an Italian village in order to find and smell the man who has caused them to leave Heaven.
After a self-professed Christian complained, the ad was yanked from South African channels. The country's Advertising Standards Authority agreed with his gripe, stating the ads were likely to offend others.
