Video: The MTV Skins Commercials Are Hot, But This Extended Trailer is Even Hotter
You can’t flip on MTV these days without seeing some type of promo for their new show, Skins. (Not that we’re complaining or anything.) The commercials are pretty shocking (sex! drugs! girl on girl!), but this extended trailer takes it to a whole other level.
No wonder the Parents Television Council just announced the show as “the most dangerous show for teens.” Do you agree?
Read on to watch the extended Skins trailer, plus find out what else the PTC had to say.
“Despite the MA-rating for Skins, MTV appears to be deliberately targeting teens with its marketing campaign,” said PTC president Tim Winter. “Skins may well be the most dangerous show for children that we have ever seen.”
Added Winter: “The marketing campaign itself makes light of lying to parents and participating in all manner of harmful, irresponsible, illegal and adult-themed behavior. The trailers we have seen thus far make sexual objects of almost every single one of its characters and asks not only for viewers to approve, but to actively participate by posting their own secret stories.”
