Dolce & Gabbana adverts "glorify violence", say the ASA
166 complaints were received when the ads ran in The Times and Daily Telegraph: however, no complaints were received when they appeared in publications in China, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan and the US. Undeterred, the ASA said the advert in The Times was " likely to cause serious or widespread offence" - mostly because it appeared opposite an article on knife-related crime. Oops. You'll find some images from the campaign in question after the jump. What do you think? Do they make you want to stab someone (Dolce or Gabbana, perhaps?), or are the watchdogs taking it all just a little bit too seriously?
