Feb 21, 2017  •  Post A Comment

The Netflix streaming service pulled the plug on a graphic ad campaign for its original comedy series “Santa Clarita Diet” that was running in Germany, after receiving complaints about the ads, Variety reports.

“The German marketing materials for the show feature a sliced-up finger coated in blood-colored ketchup and sprinkled with curry powder, an image evocative of the popular German sausage dish currywurst,” Variety reports. “A giant billboard of the dismembered digit was hung in Potsdamer Platz, where the Berlin Film Festival was recently held.”

The report notes that Netflix had food trucks in place around the plaza serving up currywurst.

The comedy stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.
