( 4UMF NEWS ) Kate Upton‘s Commercial Banned:
Kate Upton is too hot for TV.
The curvaceous blond bombshell, who poses in a barely-there bikini on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, stars in an upcoming TV commercial for Zoo York that has been deemed too risqué for the general public.
In the ad, Upton is seen jogging through Tompkins Square Park in New York’s East Village neighborhood as the skate brand’s infamous “talking” cockroaches provide expletive-ridden commentary along the sidelines.

As a belly-baring Upton takes her time stretching around a group of skateboarders, the two bugs start a conversation filled with double entendres, using the words “grinding,” “backside” and “waxed.”
The commercial, which will debut on cable networks and online in early April, has been rejected by MTV and the Adult Swim Network for its use of “bleeped profanity” and an image of Upton’s “erect nipple,” according to Zoo York’s press release.
Regardless of the controversy, Upton seems to be a fan of the ad.

“This was such a funny commercial! Who knew cockroaches were so racy and hilarious? Definitely a must-see!” the 19-year-old model said.
“We selected Kate for the commercial not only because she is beautiful but because of her youthful and vibrant disposition,” said Jameel Spencer, EVP of Marketing for Zoo York’s brand management company, Iconix Brand Group, Inc.
“She compliments the brand’s DNA, making her a perfect addition to the campaign.”
