Best Buy had a neat package deal for customers who want a Blu-Ray copy of the movie “Burlesque.” For $20, shoppers would get both the movie and a free corset of questionable quality. The corset was exclusive to Best Buy: but not for very long, because stores were ordered to pull the corsets before the item went on sale.
High-Def Digest reports that the chain pulled the lingerie from shelves due to pressure from an unnamed “parents’ group.” Burlesque is rated PG-13, and the specter of minors being able to wander out of a store with free lingerie was clearly too much to bear. In some stores, the Blu-Ray movie is off shelves entirely.
We contacted Best Buy for comment about this earlier today, but haven’t heard back yet.
