Censorship rules OK! For the ASA (the UK's Advertising Standards Authority) warns "marketers to be careful about offending religious sensitivities", ie. they'll get into big trouble if they do so. Various ways of "offending religious sensitivities" include "irreverent depiction of sacred figures" (the example given being "images of the crucifixion"), "links between religion and sex", and worst of all, "swearing"! What next?! Banning ads for trying to "influence consumer behaviour"? [Source:The Advertising Standards Authority]
