The Unilever-owned brand is painting the 100,000-square-foot image on a field under the flight path to Gatwick Airport.

The outdoor ad, which features the strapline "Spray more, get more", ties into the brand's £11m summer campaign; the TV work broke earlier this month. One of the biggest outdoor ads ever created in the UK, the image will remain on the site from July 18 to August 14.

The artwork, which mimics the design of the Cerne Abbas Giant -- the chalk man carved in-to a Dorset hillside -- is likely to attract criticism from watchdogs. Because they have an adult theme, the company has been ordered to show the TV ads only after 9pm.

The campaign was created by Bartle Bogle Hegarty and Flightpath Media. MindShare was responsible for media.
