Controversial Ads from Brazil

These Ads are for a Brazilian brand of low-fat Yogurt. The ads are parodies of some of the most iconic and sensual images in American cinema. The chances of such ads ever appearing in the US are pretty ‘slim’. They would have invited thousands of angry calls and emails from viewers to the advertisers of the product. Obesity is a touchy subject in America, and a backlash would have prompted the manufacturers to withdraw the ads with an apology. I am sure that a lot of people would find the model(s) attractive, but Brazil, a nation which idealizes and worships super-thin bodies will obviously take the opposite view.What are your feelings on this issue ? Would it work in America ?
