c'mon, it's funny

I can understand if purityrannical Americans got all hot-and-bothered about such a thing, but Europeans? I expected more out of you, Old World:
Spanish politicians have criticised a video by the Young Socialists in Catalonia in which a woman simulates an orgasm while casting her vote.

Both Socialist and opposition politicians have attacked the campaign video.

The equality minister called it "misleading" advertising.

In the video the young woman gets increasingly excited as she votes for the Socialist Party in this month's regional elections in Catalonia.

It concludes with the phrase, "Voting is a pleasure", after she puts her voting slip in the ballot box.

The leader of the conservative opposition Popular Party of Catalonia, Alicia Sanchez-Camacho, said the video was an "attack on the dignity of women".
Although Socialist equality minister Bibiana Aido wins the day:
"If it was true, electoral participation would go up greatly, but I think we are dealing with a misleading advert."
