Thirty-seven percent of the respondents to a Matichon online survey to gauge public opinions about the controversial billboards of Thammasat University’s Cheerleader Club support the billboards, said they are great and amount to “thinking out of the box”.

 

27 percent of the respondents disagreed, saying they are inappropriate while 36 percent said the billboards convey wrong message.

 

The billboards show headshots revealing bare shoulders of members of the university’s former cheerleader team.

"...27 percent of the respondents disagreed, saying they are inappropriate while 36 percent said the billboards convey wrong message..."

 

How precisely are they "inappropriate"?

 

What precisely is the "wrong message"?

 

If the display of bare shoulders is going to harm the moral fiber of Thailand, the country is already screwed. Aren't there already enough serious issues facing the country? Does this matter in the slightest?

 

Hey Netizens! You have more serious things to discuss!

What do pictures like that have to do with cheerleaders? Nothing!

The students are clearly pictured as naked - at least the visible part.

Do cheerleaders perform like that? I don't think so.

So why do they use pictures like that?

I am not offended or anything like that, but I wonder why cheerleaders are not shown as cheerleaders. Wouldn't that make a lot more sense?

In ads from a brand like Victoria Secrets girls are seen in underwear.

On Petburi we see parts of naked girls because that is what they sell.

So why does the university do what they do? What is their intention?

What exactly IS the message?  It seems more of a flesh advertisement than anything else.  They seem to be inviting applications for something, but the photo does not provide sufficient clarity as to what this is.

 

I'd have to agree with those saying it sends the wrong message.  The message is certainly less than clear, which is not what one usually desires when putting up a billboard.

As cheerleaders do not sell cheerleader outfits your analogies fail.

This marks the downfall of morality in this country, mark my words. Next we will see billboards of women showing bare ankle.

Anyway, seems like its been quite a successful advertisement, with widespread coverage and thousands of people seeing it and talking about it.

The intention is attention~it has been used in the west for decades.  Did you see the controversial Nike ad?  Millions of dollars of extra publicity~it just may be that they want people to go to the games?
