Who says the Europeans are decadent?

Check out the advertisement that has been banned in parts of France and Italy:  La polémica cena El Mundo (Spain) 03/15/05.  Click on "Comenzar" below the picture to see a slideshow feature.

There's not even anybody nekkid in it!  Well, except for the guy whose back is turned to the camera.

The religious theme of this ad reminds me of an Esprit ad campaign that I saw on placards in the subway in Berlin years ago.  The series was about "if I had a wish..." or something similar.  One of them showed an attractive young woman whose wish was (quoting from memory), "I would like to marry the Pope in order to show him what he's talking about."
