Poundland’s NSFW Elf ‘Teabagging’ advert investigated

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has launched an investigation into the Poundland elf campaign, which revealed the Christmas sprite indulging in a sex act with a female doll.

The advert, posted on 21 December, showed the elf hanging a teabag on Barbie’s face, a nod to the sexual act of “teabagging”. The caption read: “How do you take your tea, one lump or two?”

The ad drew ire from the British public, with some people even questioning whether Poundland’s social media account had been hacked. But the budget shop stuck to its guns and defended the advert, which cost £25.53 to produce, quipping: “You should see the ones we didn’t post.”
Another viewpoint ..The censorious bunch of self-appointed bureaucrats at the Advertising Standards Authority have targeted anti-gay marriage advertsanti-environmentalist advertsFathers4Justice adverts, pro-hanging adverts and women in bikinis in their insidious campaign against politically incorrect causes.
Their latest investigation is into Poundland’s teabagging elf, who caused a storm in a teacup over Christmas. Literally several vastly overpaid men will be sitting in a room discussing whether an image of an elf holding a teabag over a plastic doll is against their code. The investigation is going to last months. And all because some lefties moaned on Twitter. Free the teabagging elf!
