Italian Gelato sexy ads Controversial!
Antonio Federici’s advert showed a pregnant nun eating ice cream in a church, together with the strap line “immaculately conceived”.
It added that the use of religious imagery represented its strong feeling towards its product.
The banned advert was featured in editions of The Lady and Grazia magazines.
The ASA said in its ruling: “We considered the use of a nun pregnant through immaculate conception was likely to be seen as a distortion and mockery of the beliefs of Roman Catholics”.
