Calvin Klein ad accused of "gay propaganda" in Russia


The new Calvin Klein's ad for the perfume CK2, which features two opposite-sex and two same-sex couples, has been reported to the Russian authorities for containing elements of propaganda of homosexuality.

Complaints have been made to authorities in Arkhangelsk after someone watched the advert on YouTube. An official has announced that authorities are investigating to see whether it has broken the law.

In the ad, besides two heterosexual couples, a same-sex male couple is riding on a motorcycle shirtless while a lesbian couple bares their breasts on a highway. While both of the straight couples kiss in the video, the same-sex couples do not.

Only in Russia one ad about perfume can be accused of "gay propaganda" instead of "cologne propaganda".

Watch the video below and judge for yourself.
