EU sex advert amuses and outrages MEPs
A short promotional film released by the EU to promote their support for European films has caused a ruckus among Euro MPs.
Entitled Film Lovers Will Love This, The 44-second ad has been posted on YouTube, and features couples – including gay men and lesbians – having sex.
Produced by the European Commission’s communications unit, it features short clips from a range of films, including French international hit Amelie and finishes with the tagline “let’s come together.”
While not explicit, the light-hearted short has annoyed homophobic MEP Maciej Giertych, who accused the EU of immorality.
The advert is one of 44 produced to publicise the work of the European Union, and were commissioned by Margot Wallstrom, the Communications Commissioner.
Not all MEPs took the promotional film so seriously.
Godfrey Bloom, a UKIP MEP, told the Daily Mail:
“I suppose this film is appropriate. The EU has been screwing Britain for the past 30 years.”
