I showed this advert to my 12year old daughter last night, who could not believe this was allowed at anytime to be on tv.
My wife remembers the advert, and thinks although it is funny, is now gladly a thing of the past.
Me I think it’s funny, and probably because I’m a white heterosexual 50 plus male, don’t really think beyond that, I guess that’s wrong.
Is this a timeless harmless funny advert ?
or an embarrassment that quite rightly a thing of the past.
Some of us remember when viewers of this very website would be offered savage fights between animals as entertainment. Time moves on and we're sorry for all the mantis shrimp that died* for sport at the paws of honey badgers.Bear baiting, cock fighting, and public executions - hanging, beheading and burning - were considered harmless good all round family entertainment in their time.
For some bizarre reasons, they are not today.
Please nobody google the Robertson's jam adverts of the mid 20th Century who hasn't seen them before. Your head will probably explodeIf anyone feels guilty and uncomfortable watching this advert which was a bit of fun then I genuinely feel nothing but sorrow for you.
Looking for something to feel offended or upset by is a new pastime to many and it’s sad really.
