A radio ad promoting a SCA podcast has been pinged for breaching the AANA Code of Ethics.

The radio advertisement featured a snippet of the “Jimmy & Nath Born Funny” podcast, featuring guest Josh Thomas saying, “I think you’re underestimating how clean gay men's butt holes are, we’re not licking straight men's butt holes”.

Nath Roye replies to this saying, “yeah, some of the cleanest butt holes going around” and the duo ask their producer to give a ”thumbs up”, to which Josh Thomas reacts, and then they all laugh together.

The complaint submitted to Ad Standards highlighted that the advertisement is overtly sexual and inappropriate for broadcast.

"Radio ad on heard on cairns Hit 103.5 fm 22/2/24 at approx 6.30 pm for Listnr app podcast 'born funny' included verbal graffic description of lewd sexual acts," the complaint stated.

"I found it offensive and glad i did not have children in the car."

In response, SCA said the ad was only meant to be broadcasted once and will not go on air again.

The Ad Standards Panel found the ad contained a description of a sex act that most members of the community would not consider as appropriate for a broad audience at any time.
