    Hello.
    Just read on ananova that the ITC hav told microsoft they can no longer show the 'life is short - play more' advert for XBOX due to the fact that 'more than 100 people' complained.(This is the advert with a baby being shot out of the hospital window, ageing rapidly and then landing in a grave) Who are these people ? I though it was one of the most clever commericals i have seen in a while ? Anyone agree ? Do we know live in a society where anything can upset anyone !!! Does this army of complainers have nothing better to do ?
    :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Do you think if a hundred of us complained about "Richard & Judy" they would ban them as well??

    Funny how tens of thousands of us complain about DOG's on digital TV and nothing is done - a few hundred complain about a very clever advert and it's banned. It's a funny world :clown:

    The worst advert around at the moment is the hulahoops/Shoks or whatever they are called - the ones with the electric eels - absolute [email protected]!

    Tango ads are funny though, and the Carling one.

    Can't believe I am talking about adverts! :blush: :rolleyes:
