    Highly inappropriate, but I do want to point out that the right side portrays a crush the girl has on the teacher, not the teacher on the student. The teacher`s side is the left side, that sees her as an innocent little girl.

    @Rick: No it doesn`t. The right side is the teacher. He is the one talking in the first panel, and he mouth-rapes the apple in the second panel.

    The teacher wants that young ginger snap.

    ha! clever!

    I don`t see how paedophilia can be promoted though... it`s not a product or an aspiration is it? It`s not like this advert is going to turn non-paedophiles into paedophiles!

    I`m with Rick_S that maybe the inappropriate side is the girls crush on the teacher... Especially because a young girl like on the left wouldn`t be studying anatomy, that could be the teachers perception on a teenager.

    The left panel is the teacher`s perception, as he listens to the girl, the right is from the girl`s perspective. It`s a teenage girl with a crush. And the teacher just sees her as a child and has no interest in her. I find this quite the amusing advert. :->

    It really isn`t pedophilia. The girl has a crush as someone else said. The teacher is being professional. I don`t know how that`s pedophilia.

    That`s one way to look at it. And that way was probably the intended method. The other way to look at it would be that the man`s point of view is on the right. And that`s where we get into trouble.

    Read what the point of the ad is. It`s about how a KIA can have different temperatures on different sides of the car. The right side is much hotter than the left, that`s all. I think it`s funny.

    heartx3jess, but the characters of the left panel and the characters on the right panel are the same. They`re just portrayed differently.

    You can`t say that there`s no implied message in what they did.

    I think they just screwed themselves hard. The scenes on the right are through the child`s perception, while those on the right are the adult`s perception. Yeah, Pedobear would approve but he`s the only one.

    I think that it is likely that because 2/3 of the panels on the left are the girl talking and 2/3 on the right are the teacher talking, it is supposed to be read as the teacher`s point of view on the left and the student`s POV on the right. On the left, the teacher is listening to what the student is saying and interpreting it as innocent because that is the interpretation he is biased toward. On the right, the student is interpreting what the teacher says as sexual because that is the interpretation she is biased toward.

    There is less likelihood of the POVs being switched because of the last panel, where the girl says "How about anatomy?" That is a blatant flirtation that an innocent girl would be unlikely to initiate. I doubt that a girl as young as the one portrayed on the left would be studying anatomy.

    I interpreted the different panels as being different people, not different perceptions of the same person, but it works with the left panel as reality and the right panel as the girl`s wishful thinking that she`d like to be older than she actually is and seduce the teacher.

    Regardless of whether the panels are two different scenarios with different people or any combination of one real and one fantasy from the point of view of either of them, it`s impossible for the ad to be promoting paedophilia.

    The sexual content is only on the side with two adults. The side with the child is completely asexual. It really should be obvious that`s the *opposite* of paedophilia.

    Too many people nowadays are obsessed with sex and children to such an extent that they can`t think at all, not even to see the stunningly obvious. It`s rather disturbing.

    Eh... I thought of it this way and it wasn`t so pedo-y:

    It`s cool/cold on the left BECAUSE the girl is in grade school.

    It`s warm/hot on the right BECAUSE the girl is an 18 year old senior in high school, and the teacher doesn`t feel like a creep because, hey, 18. It`s still weird and illegal, just with less statutory rape.

    XBX214, Its adult rated in the teachers mind, he is still responding to the cartoonish version in an adult manner. Seeing as the cartoonish part is shown first, I would assume it is the reality. So its ok to think of or speak to an underage girl if you think of them as 18 or over? lol

    I dont take offence in a normal teacher+innocent kid (normal being how it shold be) and a `creepy` (cna you blame him) guy and a slut. shes doing it too so let her.
