On 28 August, I made a quick mention of the gigantic poster at Knightsbridge (the former Crown Prince Hotel) put up by Abercrombie & Fitch and how it caused distress to some people with more puritanical persuasion. They said it was lewd. Read blog post here.
This was a photo I took that day:
What if we were to put a 4 storey high statue of David by Michelangelo in the same location?
Totally indecent! Gasp! It does not even have a pair of jeans to hide the privates!
Or what about this famous painting in the Sistine Chapel (yes, in a Chapel) also by Michelangelo?
Anyway, the Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore (ASAS) in its infinite wisdom has decided that the ad is indecent and has called for the ad to be removed.
Why bother talking about being more vibrant in the arts when we are not even able to match the openess of the Renaissance period a few centuries ago?
