Tasteless Ad that Features Nude Air Hostesses

A travel company's tasteless advertisement featuring nude air hostesses went down like a lead balloon with their customers.
 
Kazakhstan's Chocotravel had released a video promoting their budget flight services, which adds nothing to the price of a plane ticket.
 
But the offensive footage hasn't had the desired effect, with customers lambasting the company as sexist.
 
The advert starts with just a head shot of one hostess as she gasps in apparent ecstasy at the offer. Then a second stewardess blows a kiss to the camera.
 
But it is only when the camera pulls back that it is revealed that the seven stewardesses in the lineup are naked apart from their caps and neckerchiefs.
 
Only a strip running across the screen like a booking form hides their breasts from view.
 
Then as the camera pulls back even more, they whip off their caps to protect their modesty and hide their private parts from view.



The ad looks like a spoof that would not be out of place on a show with Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy Kazhak creation Borat.
 
Really, what were they thinking of?!?!?!
 
I was at the Speakers Dream Toastmasters meeting today. And I delivered an Ice-breaker – titled “Born to Speak”. This is my CC Round #44!
