 The Advertising Standards Authority has made numerous rulings against Wicked Campers, and has expressed disappointment at its refusal to respect the principles of self-regulation. Slogans such as “Fat chicks are harder to kidnap” have incurred the wrath of the Women’s Refuge NZ. And this month, a slogan proclaiming, “My boss told me I was a w***er, I was so surprised I almost let go of his c***”, prompted a Whangarei resident to complain to local MP Shane Reti. Other slogans have included “If you love me you would swallow it”, “Your thighs won’t touch if my head’s between them” and “a wife: an attachment you screw on the bed to get the housework done“. In December 2014, Police expressed concerns about a Wicked rental van that depicts Snow White smoking a crack pipe and tells people to “enjoy” the class A drug.

 Unfortunately the advertising industry cannot be relied upon to self-regulate, and the Advertising Standards Authority reviews objectionable adverts so long after the ad have been displayed that the damage is already done. It’s easy to change the television channel, but it’s not so easy to turn off a billboard.(more)

 An independent survey of 1,000 NZ’ers found that 72% of respondents supporting large public billboards being G-rated suitable for children to view. Strongest support came from women.It is vital that families continue to speak up rather than accept the sexualisation of girls and women in the media and on billboards. Local communities have an important role of protecting children from offensive advertising and the pornification of our culture.(more)

 Family First NZ is calling for the government to review and tighten codes around television advertising, billboards and outdoor advertising, including pre-vetting of billboards.(more)

 Some detractors have said that Wicked Campers are simply exercising their freedom of speech, but Ms Orbea said this argument didn’t hold water because people were forced to see their “moving billboards”.(more)

 The company has been censured by the Advertising Standards Bureau in the past, with a March ruling finding that a slogan on one of its slogans — “Fat girls are harder to kidnap!” — breached the Advertiser Ethics Code.(more)

COMMENTARY on Wicked campers.

Sources: For NZ Family First NZ , for AUS News.com

These articles show people power in action where the public in Australia and New Zealand rejected campervans touring their countries with objectionable slogans on them.

NEW ZEALAND– Many families have been offended by the offensive signwriting on Wicked Campers that travel around NZ.

Last year, Lonely Planet dropped Wicked Campers from its Australian and New Zealand guidebooks following a 120,000-strong petition against the company’s slogans. That protest led to the removal of some slogans. Good!

The Advertising Standards Authority has made numerous rulings against Wicked Campers, and has expressed disappointment at its refusal to respect the principles of self-regulation. Slogans such as “Fat chicks are harder to kidnap” have incurred the wrath of the Women’s Refuge NZ. And this month, a slogan proclaiming, “My boss told me I was a w***er, I was so surprised I almost let go of his c***”, prompted a Whangarei resident to complain to local MP Shane Reti.

Our understanding is that between 2010 and 2015, Wicked Campers has had 13 complaints upheld against it by the ASA, but Wicked Campers simply ignores them! The Australian Senate in 2014 passed a Green party motion condemning the “sexist, misogynist and racist slogans” that Wicked campers have on their hire vans.

AUSTRALIA- WICKED Campers have agreed to clean up sexist or misogynistic slogans from their fleet of vans after a public outcry this week.

The company has today issued an apology and committed to reviewing and removing offensive marketing from all of its campervans in the next six months.

Paula Orbea, the Sydney school teacher who started the 110,000-strong change.org petition against Wicked Campers, says it’s a stunning people-power victory against sexism, with the result coming just four days after she started the petition.

In an email from Wicked Campers received by Paula, she says the company has offered a personal apology and has now removed the sexist slogan Paula’s daughter saw.

“Wicked Campers owner John Webb wishes to acknowledge the prevailing community opinion by REMOVING the slogan in question and making a commitment over the coming six months to changing slogans of an insensitive nature,” the statement reads.

Ms Orbea said she was “overjoyed by the result” and commended Wicked Campers for “eventually listening to consumers that their misogynistic slogans weren’t acceptable”.
