[Ads-l] censored = 'uncensored' ?

I think she's showing the picture with the dog's chest bare (tits visible) and saying "This is the picture that was censored."  And showing the picture with her hand over the dog's chest and saying "This is the picture that was not censored."

That makes cense to me.  But it may be counterproductive, by giving many viewers the opposite impression, that the bare-chested picture was okayed by the censors.

Or have I completely misunderstood this discussion?

That does make stupid sense. If  you know who she is.  Otherwise it makes
no sense at all.

 Like more and more commercials.
