Pakistan Pulls Controversial Condom Commercial

Pakistan's media regulator has pulled a controversial commercial off the air following complaints that the ad was "immoral."

A spokesman for the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority says people complained that such an advertisement should not be aired on Pakistani TV during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The commercial features a couple wondering how their neighbor managed to land a glamorous wife. He later reveals his secret to be a packet of 'Josh' brand condoms.

Discussion of contraception remains taboo in Pakistan, a mainly Muslim country.
