Sexy Commercial Banned By MTV

MTV has yanked a sexy commercial for Candie's shoes from its regular rotation and plans to run it only after 9:00 p.m., the New York Post reported today (Tuesday). The 60-second spot features Mark McGrath of the band Sugar Ray and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe of Nash Bridges cavorting naked together in a shower. The Post quoted an MTV spokesperson as saying that the commercial was pulled because "the premise of a couple 'enjoying' a shower together and the extended depiction of the shower is too provocative for an all-day rotation." Candie's said it may pull the spot off the channel.
