Wicked campers slogans may be a bit too wicked

YouTube direct

If you have ever traveled anywhere near where you may find a backpacker you may have seen a Wicked Camper, ie: an old delivery van or people mover converted into a camper with graffiti artwork all around it. While they look pretty cool are a cheap mode of transport for thousands of backpackers, they have recently landed themselves in hot water with the slogans on the vans. Several of the vans have the slogans “save a whale harpoon a Jap”, and other things like “if God was a woman, sperm would taste like chocolate” or similar. According to this news.com.au article today the Advertising Standards Bureau has asked the company to remove the slogans they think are offensive. What do you think? Offensive or a bit of fun, hit up our comment form below.

    Hey Wattsy! Know this post is a bit old, but found it when I was trawling through Google.

    I work for Wicked Campers and we’re actually on the scout-out for new, original quotes for the back of our vans. Not the stuff you find on the net/bumper stickers, but purely original stuff!

    Reckon you’ve got a good quote? If so, would love to hear from ya!
