Nip / Tuck ad Too Sexy for the Tube

Are we turning into the US? Yet another poster (for FX TV's new season of Nip / Tuck) has been banned from the London Underground for being too sexy. The follows the recent U-turn TfL made on the
banning of a 400 year old work of art (although Fat Christ is still banned).

Nip/Tuck Poster Banned from the London Underground

"A supporting cast of lovely ladies has been deemed too racy by Transport for London (TfL), forcing one model to cover up in the amended creative for the six-sheet execution. The 48-sheet creative has now been banned outright......An alternate media plan, to cover the shortfall in outdoor, includes rail and stature sights." said UTalkmarketing.

Seriously, what is wrong with that poster? Or certainly nothing beyond what we see on most lingerie adverts every day.

UPDATE - a newer un-sexy version has now been approved by TfL. See if you can spot the difference.
