Olympic qualifiers pulled over sex toy ads
Adverts for a sex toy company plastered over the ice at qualifiers for the Beijing Olympics curling competition have prompted Japan’s national broadcaster to pull matches off the air. NHK had planned to show all of the Japanese mixed-doubles team’s matches at the qualifying tournament in Leeuwarden, in the Netherlands. But am advert for Dutch sex toy company EasyToys prompted a hasty rethink, with NHK pulling the plug on Japan’s opener against the United States on Sunday.
