Oreo ad of baby feeding on exposed breast slips past the censors

Kraft Foods is crying over spilled milk, but, contrary to the popular adage, the company may have something to cry about. An ad showing a baby of Asian extraction holding an Oreo cookie as it nurses on an exposed human breast was accidentally released.
The image has making the Internet rounds, usually with a geometric shape surprinted over the woman’s otherwise visible nipple. (The uncensored version can be viewed by clicking here.)
CBS St. Louis was told by a spokesperson for Kraft that the ad was not intended for mass public consumption:
‘We’d like to clarify that Kraft Foods did not create this visual,’ a spokesperson said in a statement via e-mail. ‘In fact, this visual was created by our agency for a one-time use at an advertising awards program.’
The spokesperson added, ‘It was never intended for public distribution or use with consumers. And it has never run in Korea or any other markets.’
The caption at the bottom of the ad reads, “Milk’s favorite cookie,” employing the tagline in a current campaign for this popular product.
The problem that Kraft is encountering affords a cautionary tale about the World Wide Web, which might be more appropriately be dubbed the World Wide Octopus. Its tentacles are everywhere and impossible to avoid.
