It's not every day that we get to see an advert that's so questionable it gets banned, but apparently, today is that day. An obscure advert from Korea featuring, shapeshifting women (yes, you read that right) has been taken down after a number of complaints were made – and we can see why. 

The ad for a dairy company has come under fire for including bizarre and controversial imagery of women before they transform into cows (yep it's just as weird as it sounds). The ad also features creepy footage of a man recording women, which has received backlash for resembling non-consensual voyeurism. If you're hoping to make your very own (less-offensive) advert, then why not check out our roundup of the best editing software
