An Australian pub has come under fire for offering free drinks to women who take off their panties and hang them on a rail above the bar.
The Saint Hotel in Melbourne promoted its offer as "No undie Sunday," with a notorious paparazzi picture of U.S. singer Britney Spears getting out of a car wearing no knickers.
The advertisement in an entertainment magazine offers a free glass of champagne to women who "flash bra or undies to bar staff."
Those who go further and "hang your undies on the line above the bar" win $50 worth of free drinks.
Politicians and the hotel industry accused the management of sexism and "inappropriate" behavior.
"In this day and age, in 2008, to be promoting the drinking of alcohol along those lines, I just think is part of a bygone era," said Victoria state's acting Premier Rob Hulls.
The same hotel drew criticism in June when it employed a shirtless dwarf to pour shots of liquor down the throats of patrons.© Wire reports
