it wasn't that kind of poster. it was an ad in a publication that probably sells them a fair number of tickets. googling 'holy fuck guardian' shows they've had a number of reviews and mentions in the paper's music section.
i doubt this is a publicity stunt either. what would they have to gain from setting precedent that ads for their tours (and, by extension, a number of other bands) are now unsuitable even for publications that are aimed at and bought by adults?
and seriously affecting their future promotional activity via a decision by the Advertising Standards Authortity that was only posted on here two and a half weeks after publication? I'm sure there's better they could have done.
