Dunlop Volley shoe ads bit sexy for the ACL

dunlop volley christian lobby all about rooting

The Australian Christian Lobby’s Queensland director Wendy Francis has warned parents about a Dunlop Volley “R-rated” shoe ad that she says is “all about rooting”.

“Parents be aware Dunlop Volley still sell sandshoes for school kids, but their website has R-rated images as they’re now ‘all about rooting’,” Francis tweeted, referring to the shoe brand’s new Grassroots ad campaign.

Consistent to longstanding ACL practice, Francis claimed to be a matryr for her cause.

“Volley sandshoes ads are defended as fine for our kids. I’m ridiculed for concern. I’ll cop the ridicule and keep fighting for kid’s innocence.”

The company said on their website the new campaign is a “celebration of sexual expression.”

Last year, Dunlop partnered with Ansell condoms to promote safe sex, sharing a photo of a tennis racquet covered by a condom on Twitter.

The company responded to Francis on Twitter.

“Thanks for rooting for us!”

And the photographer behind the series of nude snaps, Marisa Taschke, pointed out to Wendy Francis that her outrage had just sent the photos viral.

“Big shout out to @volleyaustralia number one fan @wendyjoyfrancis and the Australian Christian Lobby!” she wrote on Instagram.

“You’ve helped spread the message behind #grassroots! Your ignorance and hate has helped educate more Australians about safe sex! … We’re dedicating this one to you girlfriend!!”

But the reaction on Twitter has been pretty priceless.
