Banned Nike sports chainsaw advert http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlW_JCkQFdM
Why it’s a really bad advert… This advert has obvious and clear reasons to why the ASA had banned the advert. The content within the advert causes an bad effect on children that view the advert as it causes distress to young children viewing the advert. The advert represents that by wearing Nike trainers, you can escape from your fears and problems, which is misleading.The advert also relates to movie scenes as it contains a similar feature to Texas Chainsaw Massacre.The reasons to why I think the ASA have banned this advert is that it was too extreme for the public to view and would cause enormous amounts of distress to young children and the elderly.
Ghd ad ASA ruled it could cause offence GhdA TV ad campaign featuring lingerie-clad women praying for beautiful hair has been banned by the advertising watchdog because it might offend Christians. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyZDD0yccQI
The series of three TV ads, created by ad agency TBWA Manchester for beauty firm ghd, had an overall religious theme using the strapline "Ghd. A new religion for hair". • Ghd's ads showed scantily-clad women in various positions, such as lying on a bed, while looking upwards with their hands clasped as if in prayer. Some had objects that looked like votive candles and rosary beads. • Viewers could hear the thoughts of each of the women, in various languages including English, which centred on having great hair. • One woman was thinking "May my new curls make her feel choked with jealousy", while another was saying to herself "May my flirty flicks puncture the heart of every man I see". At the end of each ad an endline ran: "Thy will be done". • The Advertising Standards Authority received a total of 23 complaints, including one from the Archdeacon of Liverpool, objecting that the ads were offensive to the Christian faith. • The complaints particularly highlighted the use of the phrase from the Lord's Prayer and the depiction of the letter "t" as a cross in "thy". • The ASA said that while previous ghd campaigns did not "mock" faith or belief, the new ads went further with the women appearing to be praying while being erotic. • The ad watchdog decided to ban the ad because the eroticised images in conjunction with religious symbols and the phrase "Thy will be done", as well as the letter "t" as the cross of Jesus, were likely to cause serious offence, particularly to Christians. • Martin Penny, the managing director of ghd, said that the ban was perplexing, adding that the company had used the phrase "a new religion for hair" for seven years with little problem. • "We have a loyal following of women and the ads were, in fact, produced by an all-female creative team," he said. "It has nothing to do with religion really, if it was more people would have complained. • "There are far more erotic things in Nuts or on Page 3 if that's what people like. It is a fashion ad which is tasteful and sensitive. The ASA seem to be frightened of their own shadow."
