Sexist advert flown over beaches in Malaga, Alicante and Cadiz

Sexist advert flown over beaches

A CONTROVERSIAL advertising campaign removed from a car park in Torre del Mar two weeks ago has returned to the Costa del Sol in the form of banners flown behind three planes.

The advert, declaring “Comemetoerhigo” and featuring a picture of a naked woman with the word “censored” across her, was flown on banners behind planes over beaches in Malaga, Alicante and Cadiz.

Media reports say members of the press received anonymous calls minutes before the stunt, giving them time to rush to the beach to see the banner.

They added the company responsible is registered in Belize, a tax haven and that a young man was used to arrange the initial advertising space in the Torre del Mar car park, paying €80, although he has denies being involved.

The campaign’s website had been displaying a clock counting down to the time of the aerial campaign, with the message “people of Alicante, Cadiz and Malaga, see you on the beach.”

Local Police have said the person responsible could be guilty of at least five legal infractions.
