Holy Moly! The Swedes are even more politically correct than the English

"Massage" is a naughty word???
The Football Association has pulled an advert for an upcoming England match after it was branded racist. Sweden was outraged by the 'racial stereotypes' used in the ad for their friendly at Wembley.

It featured a fake Swede using sexual innuendo over an Abba-style backing track to promote the game on November 15.

A voice says: 'And now a massage from the Swedish football team: Listen up, English football fans...'

The Football Association removed the talkSPORT commercial after England's upcoming opponents reacted angrily to the advert

A similar method was used to promote a friendly with Spain last month.



  1. That's a line that's been borrowed from a Monty Python sketch from the 1970's, that starts off with a voice over saying, " ... And now, a massage from the Swedish Prime Minister, .... "

    Nothing new about it, but then the Perpetually Offended are always on the lookout for new things to be upset about.

  2. There is a legitimate (ie no happy ending) type of massage called, wait for it, Swedish massage. You can Google it without getting a list of porn sites. What's the fuss?
