We received 23 requests for 2B to post a photo of the offending
Jockey billboard (Groups
call for removal of obscene underwear ads, The
Nation, February 11, 2005). Interestingly enough, almost
all the requests were from overseas Thais. So here is a photo
(left) of the billboard and its surroundings near Ratchayothin
intersection. It has been there for possibly a year already.

...The Consumer Protection Board was indeed able to find
a law that plainly states: Advertising must not promote
illegal or immoral behaviour or cause cultural damage.
But who is qualified to determine right and wrong for a society
and culture? Which is worse: a man lounging around with his
girlfriend in their underwear or a prime-time soap opera featuring
a hero who rapes the heroine?...
