Even as a gay man, I needed a cold shower after watching Beyonce’s fragrance commercial. Man, does she sizzle in the minute-long clip for her first ever fragrance, “Heat“. The sultry singer slithers, writhes, and slinks in a revealing red dress while giving a sexy cover of Peggy Lee’s “Fever“. There were moments, B verged on having a wardrobe malfunction of her own when her dress came narrowly close to giving a nip slip.
The commercial is so hot, it’s being banned from airing in the UK before 7:30pm for being too “sexually provocative“. On a side note, why 7:30 and not 8:15 or some other time. The time seems rather random, if you ask me. Luckily for us, with the power of YouTube we can watch it anytime of the day.
Here’s an excerpt from a statement given by the UK Advertising Standards Authority:
“We considered that Beyoncé’s body movements and the camera’s prolonged focus on shots of her dress slipping away to partially expose her breasts created a sexually provocative ad that was unsuitable to be seen by young children,”
What did you think of the commercial? Is too sexy for daytime consumption? I don’t know about you, but I’m curious to see what “Heat” smells like.
