French officials say tourism promotion video is too raunchy


UPI News Service, 07/06/2013 

French tourism officials say a promotional video with images of women in bikinis is too raunchy to use but its creator says the women are "almost asexual."

The video for the Charente-Maritime region features women dancing in bikinis and posing in and around swimming pools, The Local.fr reported Friday.

At one point in the video, a woman in a gold bikini shakes her breasts at the camera.

"We hoped to see something else -- children by the ocean perhaps, or other images of the region," said Stephane Villain, president of the Charente-Maritime Tourist board. "It might appeal to the young but we cannot have the dancers waddling like that."

Villain said he liked the "music and the general atmosphere of the video but not the images."

Dominique Bussereau, head of the Charente-Maritime regional council, said the video was in "bad taste."

Franck Lecole, the creator of the video defended his work.

"There's no G-string in sight," he said. "I work with rappers so I could have brought in some absolute stunners. The ones in the video are almost asexual. They look like little girls at the beach."
