BANGKOK: -- "Pretties" at the upcoming Motor Expo 2016 car show have been told to cover up or else.

 

Organisers are demanding that outfits be submitted for approval before the event, reports Daily News.

 

And anyone who performs in an over the top way can expect trouble.

 

The event goes ahead at Impact Challenger in Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok, from December 1st to 12th.

 

At another motor show earlier in the year the culture minister went ape after a pretty and a male model ignored his requests and danced provocatively at a booth selling cars. 

 

The participants ended up apologizing to the public at a police station for their "sex show" antics.

 

Chairman of the organizing committee Kwanchai Paphatwong asked for the cooperation of the car and motorbike companies in toning things down at December's event.

 

He said that all "pretty" (the name given to promotional models) costumes must be submitted for approval. They must not be too revealing or "body hugging".

 

Skirts and shorts must be knee length, he said.

 

And there must be no over the top shows this time around - we shall be watching out, said Kwanchai warning the companies. Sound, lighting, dancing will all need to be "appropriate" he added.

 

Some 36 car companies and 19 motorbike manufacturers are expected.

 

Some 50,000 cars are expected to be ordered as well as 4,000 bikes.

 

Patrons are expected to spend 50 billion baht.

 

The car market in Thailand continues to boom. Total car sales this year are expected to exceed the 780,000 vehicles sold in 2015. 

 

This is indicated by the first nine months of the year that slightly exceeded the same period of last year.

Don't be so strict. Give the organizers an option.

 

Take a pick-up - cover those cars, or cover the pretties...

There needs to be a line drawn between lewd and sexiness.  Something tasteful, but not too tasteful.  Approaching tasteful.  At first glance, a wet blanket popped into mind.

So, moomoos it is then.   :shock1:

 

 

Talk about fun and life sucking idiots.  Where do they find these killjoys.

 

That said, it is a very sad person who would go to a motor show just to gawk at the 'Pretties'.  Mostly, I find them quite unpretty.
