F'd Ad Fridays: Did Jean Dujardin eff up his Oscar chances?
These posters were too much even for France. The Local reports that these posters for Les Infideles, showing Jean Dujardin (below) and costar Gilles Lellouche (above) being sexually serviced by anonymous women (with punny headlines), were found by French ad regulator ARPP to be in "bad taste". They were voluntarily taken down.
International media are speculating, however, that the bad PR surrounding the campaign could hurt Dujardin's chances at getting the Oscar for his role in The Artist.
I don't see what these posters have to do with his performance in another movie, but anyway...
