A government agency in Brazil is calling for a TV commercial featuring supermodel Gisele Bundchen to be pulled from air.

It's a lingerie ad in which Bundchen, clad in just underwear, tells her husband she crashed the car and maxed out her credit cards.

Some are calling the ad sexist and want the National Advertising Council to pull the spot.

The lingerie maker claims it's only trying to show that, "A Brazilian woman's sensuality is her best protection when delivering bad news."
