While this TV Addict is all for creative advertising, I’m starting to think that the CW may have crossed the line with their latest ad campaign [see above video].
Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait for GOSSIP GIRL’s April 21st return. But should a show whose key demographic is comprised of teenagers really be having their lead character and supposed role model Serena Van Der Woodsen utter the ‘F’ word? [Television’s ultimate taboo!] When did GOSSIP GIRL turn into the American Version of SKINS?
Needless to say, we expect to hear from the Parent’s Television Council any moment now.
UPDATE: At the request of the CW, the racy promo in question has been removed.
