    Has anyone seen the advert for the Harvey Nichols sale where they have a woman wearing really bright, tight trousers and there is a big wet patch on them, making it look like she had wet herself

    The the tagline is ‘contain yourselves ladies and don’t get too excited about the Harvey Niks sale

    http://www.independent.ie/world-news/eu … 3091.html’

    That is horrible; showing a woman looking like she has wet herself because of a stupid sale in a clothes shop – if they want people talking about them then I suppose its working but I would not go near that shop based on that ad.

    Anything showing women with issues ‘down there’ is not amusing to me in the slightest.

    Here is a pic of it….am I over sensitive to this or is it disgusting? Lack of sleep can make me grumpy but I think this is awful….

    I agree with you its a horrible advert.I wouldnt be that shops target audience though as I dont think I would be able to afford anything in there anyway.I dont get how that was picked as the best way to advertise their shop,i mean a lot of money would have gone into picking it & that idea would have been pitched to several people-what the hell were they all thinking??

    They say that any publicity is good publicity…. but as someone with a background in PR, there is no way I’d want my company, or a client’s company image to be associated with something like this. Simply put…. in bad taste….

    is it supposed to be pee or something else?

    Think its in bad taste. There are clever ways to promote brands and shops without being so skanky!! Not gonna make me shop there, no way!!

    I’m sorry I don’t particularly think it’s funny in the slightest…I get the tag line but really…seriously….they getting the publicity alright but I reckon alot more negative than positive…it’s a bit offensive as well imo 👿

    Quite surprised that Harvey Nichols who have a good reputation would even stoop as low as this
    Bad move in the pr department they’ve lowered their standards to promote a sale ok they have people talking abOut it but seriously do you think brown Thomas would do such an ad
    Dislike
