Jim Beam "The Neighbours"

Jim Beam have been forced to pull an advert after they received complaints about its nudity and stalker theme.

Jim Beam have been running an advert in Australia where two Swedish girls talk about being naked.  The commercial ends with the web address of an extended version of the ad, which shows the girls topless being watched by their neighbors.

After the web-site caused uproar, Jim Beam shut it down.  It's unclear whether the less salacious TV commercial will also be pulled.

Other ads in the series include The Girlfriend, The Tragedy, The Stalker, The Party
