Yes we have no buses

As Roman Wanderer mentioned recently, Rome's public transport network has shot trundled into the 21st century with its new electronic bus-stops that give you second-by-second updated timetables, aided by GPS satellite tracking.
Yes, we have no buses
Example: Today strike. Next bus in 7.5 hours.

I caught this scab in flagrante delicto. Note the apposite name for the Rome public transport authority: ATAC.
Guess the ad
What caught my attention more was the ad on the back of the bus. It's pretty ... revealing.

I've masked the name of the product, but see if you can guess what it is for.
