Now I wanna make it clear......I'm not a 'size queen'....unless it comes to advertising. I saw this on Queerty a few days ago and my jaw dropped. (ooh....that reads kinda dirty, but true)

Apparently the public advertising codes and ethics regulations in New Zealand are somewhat.....lax when compared to the US. but I think this is just funny....and yet also inappropriate at the same time.

This bilboard was put up but NZ's Auckland ad agency 'Collenso BBDO' and it's advertising the show HUNG on HBO.

If you haven't seen Hung, it's about a divorced High School basketball coach who decides to capitolize on his enormous God-given attribute and become a male escort. He (& the show) is 100% hetero and you never see his "special purpose" so if you're hoping for some cheap thrill, let me save you the frustration. (Hey, I have cheap thrill moments too......I can own that.) Thomas Jane is one hot guy, his ex wife is played by former lesbian Anne Heche (whom I can't stand) and though it's mean....I have to say this to someone......the two actors who play the kids on the show? Are frighteningly ugly. There. I said it. I'm going to hell.

Anyway, I started watching because I thought the opening was hot but quickly soured on the show about 6 episodes in. It isn't necessarily bad, I just didn't enjoy it.

Here's a pic of Thomas Jane who plays the coach, and the opening of the show where he disrobes while walking through the city.

I agree that is one hot open for a tv show

I hate to disagree with you on this Geoff but the mister and I are big fans of the show (but don't worry, we won't hold that against cha) :)
