Things are getting a little crazy when it comes to the super bowl performances, the FCC are now looking at shadows cast by Prince (article –
Link to NME.COM – News – Prince’s half-time show under scrutiny).
Firstly, I’d be more concerned about the lyrics sung by an artists like Prince long before an visual element. My real point is that legislation for the FCC and OFCOM in the UK is that they act to protect innocent minds, and would an innocent mind be looking for crude and rude images in shadows being cast? I don’t think so as you would have to have some understanding of crude images to make the association, which means you can’t have an innocent mind.
I does make me laugh that statistics say that by the age of 18 you’ll have seen thousands of images of killing and death – yet an image that are associated with procreation and sexuality cause such a fury.
