Jimmy Savile is CLEAR’s new poster boy

When I first saw this I thought someone had sent me a photoshop piss take, I couldn’t believe it wasn’t a fake.

It’s not a fake, it’s real, Peter Reynolds actually launched this ad campaign for CLEAR.

The late peadophile Jimmy Savile is the new face of CLEAR.

Now I’m a staunch opponent of prohibition, but to compare prohibition to the plight of those who have suffered child abuse is weird and wrong.

Peter actually tweeted that leading @BudBuddiesFan to say “I would drop that poster ASAP if it were me old boy.”

I would drop that poster ASAP if it were me old boy

I’ve been accused of having a pretty sick sense of humour in my time, but this is beyond baffling, not to mention nauseating.

I can’t get my head around the thought processes that would make a grown adult say “Hey, this is a good idea”.

Why would you want Jimmy Savile as a poster boy for any campaign under any circumstances? Same reason you wouldn’t invite Gary Glitter to write a jingle for you.

Peter Reynolds claims to have worked with top advertising agency Saatchi and Saatchi, if this is Reynolds’ idea of a good ad campaign, it’s hardly surprising they claimed to have never heard of him when it was inquired as to ever he worked there.
