A Toronto-based dating service apologized Tuesday for off-color language appearing on a billboard along Route 88 in Overbrook.

The advertisement features a woman in a slinky dress sipping a cocktail with an obscene phrase printed in German.

Cougarlife.com, a service that matches older women with younger men, said in a statement that the advertisement was created in Germany and an American vender who doesn't understand the language printed and posted it.

Pittsburgh Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak, who represents the neighborhood, called the ad tasteless.
