Clever Advertising?

This apparently just got banned in Australia by the Advertising Standards Bureau. It was ruled that “it wasn’t funny and portrayed violence”…

Not sure what you think about it, but I think it’s actually rather clever and funny advertising…

  1. HaHA! I LOVE it! It appeals to my sense of humour and playing with words. I think the Australian Advertising Agency needs to lighten up a bit, but I am sure most other countries would probably be the same, nowadays. šŸ™‚

  3. I think the play on words is quite funny. Although I do realize I’m not the target of the joke which can make the difference between finding something funny or viewing it as offensive.

    It’s interesting how controversial humor can be. What one person finds as funny, another might consider it as problematic. One example is the Australia Day Lamb video. It caused an uproar for several reasons, one of which was when they had someone with a flamethrower scorch a bowl of vegetables in a vegan’s apartment. Since I’m not vegan, it’s easy enough to laugh but someone who is might very well tire of being poked at with humor.

    Humor, at times it’s like a porcupine: sometimes hard to grasp and can definitely jab you if you’re aren’t careful.
