MTV’s Skins proves too much for US advertisers

The US version of Channel 4′s hit teen drama ‘Skins’ is proving way too racy for US advertisers.

More than half a dozen advertisers have pulled their ads following its premier. They include Taco Bell, Subway, H&R Block, Wrigley, GM and Schick Hydro.

This is a complete reversal of fortune for MTV which had a strong line-up of advertisers in the premiere, but pressure from the Parent Television Council (PTC), as Campaign reports, has done the trick.

All you need to do is check out these trailers to see what the PTC and advertisers were getting so excited about – the reverse trailer is particularly good.
