According to The Local, a news site in France, on Thursday, February 2, 2012, the poster ads for the French film “Les Infideles” starring Jean Dujardin and Gilles Lellouche seemed to be offensive, particularly to women.

As noted in the report, the “Les Infideles” posters were released in Paris and in nearby areas earlier this week but ARPP, the country’s advertising professional regulation board, asked them to be replaced.

Dujardin, 39, who won the “Best Actor” award in the recent 2012 SAG Awards for his role in the silent movie “The Artist“, is being noted to have a big chance to also bring home the 2012 Oscars.

However, in his latest movie poster ad, Jean Dujardin is shown holding a pair of woman’s legs while saying “I’m just going into a meeting”, with “Les Infideles” to be released in France on February 23, 2012.

On the second ad, Gilles Lellouche is seen talking on the phone saying “it’s going to cut out, I’m just entering a tunnel,” while a woman is shown apparently kneeling in front of him and holding his suit.

Apparently, these movie ads have been the target of various criticisms recently, with ARPP Head Stephane Martin telling reports that they have no pre-control of them but have advised JC Decaux, who manage the poster sites, to replace them.

Meanwhile, Studio Cine Live magazine editor-in-chief Fabrice Leclerc, reported on Wednesday that JC Decaux will take them down.
