Castro has certainly earned a lot of attention for its advertising campaign, featuring a nearly naked Gal Gadot. Nine members of the Knesset have signed a protest letter against the “pornographic commercial,” Maariv reported on Wednesday.
“If you’re not well-dressed, you’re not dressed at all,” claims the commercial, which features a nude Gadot or model Yonatan Wagman walking into a elevator filled with dressed businesspeople.
MK Uri Ariel wrote the letters to the clothing company and Channel 2, which were signed by eight other MKs from five different parties. The lawmakers asked both companies to remove the advertisement because the models are “naked like the day they were born, with only a slight blur obscuring their private parts.” They also objected that the ad screened during peak viewing hours, when young children were watching.
Castro responded to the allegations by claiming that the models were never naked, but dressed in the company’s lingerie, which was then pixelated. “There is no law preventing a company like ours from filming lingerie,” the company said.
A spokesman for Cannel two told The Israel Times that it would investigate futher after receiving many complaints.
