If you've seen the Mott's Clamato ad that begins with a warning about how they had to cut out all of the good bits of the commercial because they were too racy, you're probably curious as to who, exactly is keeping this clam-juice related lascivity from you. And, if you're like most people, you don't care enough to actually do the research. Gotta say - I can't blame you.
The first time I saw it, I assumed it had something to do with a Quebec communications regulatory committee, just because of the initials (QCC). Regulations on advertising are different than the rest of Canada, and they're usually more strict, especially when it comes to marketing to children. Then it occurred to me that since the ad is not being shown in Quebec (as it is in English) there is no reason that this fictional regulator would have anything to do with it.
So, curiosity got the best of me, and I did some research.
QCC stands for Queue Communications Corporation, which, if you visit the site, it tells you is an affiliate of the agency. Queue Communications Corporation is, in fact, a trademark of Omnicom Group (a rather offputting name, if you ask me), which is the parent company of DDB Canada, which is the agency of record for Mott's.
So, fear not, lover of advertising-based soft-core pornography. There is no governmental big brother keeping those Caesar-toting, laytex-clad naughty nurses from your airwaves. It's just a clever (?) ploy to make you think that Mott's just just too hot for TV. There is no banned campaign... just the illusion.
