Louis Vuitton Ad pulled off the airwaves in the UK
Apparently, an Ad must do what it says it will do. This is according to the UK Advertising Commission , translation watchdogs. According to UK News, Louis Vuitton aired a handbag Advertisement which depicted a woman hand sewing a handbag with a thread with words stating "The seamstress with linen thread" and creation by "infinite patience". Sounds good , no ? Except that Louis Vuitton handbags are machine manufactured not hand.
Quite frankly, who cares really? We know Louis Vuitton does not hand make its handbags. But on second thought I can see where the UK officials are going with this. It is misleading. very.
