22nd November, 2012 by Andy Young

We count down the naughtiest advertisements ever created by booze brands to prove that sex really does sell.

Dooleys Toffee VodkaDooley’s toffee vodka raised more than an eyebrow with its series of commercials using the “Not for the sweet & innocent” tagline. Unsurprisingly, the campaign sparked objection from the Portman Group, which acts as regulatory body for the UK drinks industry.

But, as these pictures show, the company is not the only one to push the boundaries of a ruling by the UK’s Advertising Standards Association, which prohibits “linking alcohol with irresponsible behaviour, social success or sexual attractiveness.”
