Puppet showing cleavage a no-no for U.S. city’s bus shelter posters

Puppet cleavage has been ruled out for advertising posters in Colorado Springs bus shelters.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Puppet cleavage has been ruled out for advertising posters in Colorado Springs bus shelters.

Lamar Advertising rejected posters for a touring production of the Broadway show “Avenue Q” because they show the cleavage of a fuzzy pink puppet.

Lamar account executive Jeff Moore tells The Gazette of Colorado Springs the company takes a conservative approach in the area. The city is known for its political conservatism and is home to the headquarters of some conservative Christian groups.

The poster has been replaced by one showing the face of another puppet.

“Avenue Q” is a Tony-winning musical about twentysomething New Yorkers, both human and puppets, searching for life and love.
