Harvey Nichols-try to contain your excitement.

I'm not sure about you but I actually find Harvey Nichols latest sale advert quite funny?! 
I know the adverts which show a variety of people who have wet themselves at the thought of the Harvery Nichols sale have sparked outrage but I find the light-hearted humour from the luxury department store refreshing.

After many showed their dissapointed on twitter a spokesman for Harvey Nichols defended the latest campaign: 'We developed the campaign to promote our summer sale and capture the excitement in a light-hearted, humorous way.' 

This isn't the first time a Harvey Nichols advert has sparked controversy after pushing the boundaries of advertising. Around Christmas time Harvey Nichols released an advertising campaign that showed women who had apparently had casual sex the night previously and were in fact doing the 'walk of shame'. 

Either way Harvey Nichols have everyone talking about them and you know what they say 'no publicity is bad publicity'. Who knows maybe Harvey Nichols are trying to cause controversy? We will  now have to wait and see what they come up with next.
