YouTube and Porn: partners for life?

The problem with YouTube and porn is longstanding: it gets uploaded, YouTube finds it, YouTube cans it.

So the pornsters then upload almost-but-not-quite-but-very-close porn … sexy stuff with links and hints etc. etc. Or banned ads that broadcast TV won’t publish.

At least, that’s the way it used to be.

That’s always been the content. The stuff that people uploaded to YouTube. Not the material that YouTube itself is posting. Right?

Things seem to have changed at YouTube. Here’s what I saw this morning when I hit YouTube:

Yeah that’s an ad. A full-size ad for a new fragrance, Burberry Body.

And yeah, that’s most of the model’s body that’s visible in the ad. She’s obviously not wearing anything but the short raincoat. And leaving less to the imagination.

I call porn. Porn in advertising. YouTube: you’ve sunk to a new low. But we all know why: cold hard cash.

Unimpressive. Seriously unimpressive.
