A controversial advertising campaign for the ice cream brand Antonio Federici Gelato Italiano brings new meaning to the dessert cliche "sinfully delicious."
The sexy ads, which depict a nun and priest on the verge of kissing (while holding a carton of ice cream), is being investigated by a UK advertising standards agency after a complaint was made on the grounds that they are demeaning to people who have chosen a religious vocation. The ads feature the taglines "submit to temptation" and "kiss temptation." The food magazine Delicious has refused to run the ads.
The ads could be banned by the agency if they are found to violate its advertising code.
