[B]A TV advert in which a spoof rescue team saves "stricken" jars of Marmite from homes where they have been neglected has prompted 278 complaints. [/B][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHjssdNNzP0[/media] [URL]http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-23601215[/URL]
That's a really weird ad for Marmite
"Those who objected found the advert "offensive" and "in poor taste", said a spokesman for the ASA." Really? I found it funny to be honest. Rather this than the usual "look at our super sexy model with this super sexy creme with chemical ultrasexylook-c++". Oh well, I don't watch TV so I never see commercials now.
In other news 250 people wrote in about how much they love it.
Oh fuck that is brilliant.
Yeah I don't think abuse is funny
You must be really sad to actually spend time complaining about stuff like this.
[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] you sound like the life of the party
the best bit is the kid's face at the end, just shrinking in disgust.
Just noticed the kid at the end winces when he eats it haha
[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] but all those poor jars of marmite were saved, and now they're going to good, caring homes. I love happy endings, don't you?
Looks more like an RSPCA spoof than social services.
As an American, no clue what this is. Is it like Vegemite? I guess that might be obvious from the similar names.
[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] they weren't abusing the marmite they were neglecting it it's ok man they're in a better place now
[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] It's a goddamn Marmite commercial. Please don't tell me you think the commercial trivializes abuse (especially since the whole abuse portion is solved by the Marmite people, y'know, rescuing Marmite.)

[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] It's a fucking jar of breakfast spread
[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] Neither do I but it's Marmite we're talking about, not a living creature.
[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] Always a riot for me, though.
I thought it was in good taste. 250 people need to blow it out their overly sensitive arses.
Over sensitive crybabies just ruin everything don't they Its fucking yeast paste you spread on toast, grow the hell up.
[QUOTE=Socram;41747109]As an American, no clue what this is. Is it like Vegemite? I guess that might be obvious from the similar names.[/QUOTE] it's pretty much zingy-tasting stuff with lots of zinc in it, it's pretty hard to describe the taste unless you try it. but the thing is that it's really, really strong-tasting, so if you don't like the taste eating anything with it will basically make you wretch [editline]7th August[/editline] so you either love it or you hate it do you see how that works
[QUOTE=Trogdon;41747037]Yeah I don't think abuse is funny[/QUOTE] it's a fucking pot of black turds get over it..

I approve of this commercial.
Holy shit people get fucking offended over anything. Why do they always find any excuse to complain about something? You could film somebody saying "I don't like toast" and watch as hundreds of people complain how it's offensive somehow.
[QUOTE=Memobot;41747106]Looks more like an RSPCA spoof than social services.[/QUOTE] Yeah it's pretty obvious given they put the jars in animal cages.

That commercial is two minutes long? What ever happened to the 30 second rule?
