M&S aside it looks like Milly Tant and her friends are at it again.

Some people just aren't happy without having something to pick holes in.

That's all a bit silly, isn't it?

When I saw the ad I thought "oh dear."

When I heard the reaction, i.e. complaints, I thought "even more oh dear."

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm.  How very silly.

The folks who are offended by that should just look at the Oven Pride advert.  See?  Men get demeaned in advertising too.  Everyone does.  Deal with it.  Except this ad ISN'T demeaning.  Just a bit crap.

How is that lovely girl in some moderately sensible knickers offensive to anyone?

She's French.


Just kidding, but she is french, you do wonder what kind of insular and disconnected life these people must lead. "Men like pretty girls in undies? It's the end of civilisation!"

Just about everything offends somebody somewhere and if we listened to them nothing would be said, shown or heard.

Fucking wake up people.

If these types are in the minority then them and their drivel should be disregarded or ignored.There isnt any need for an investigation and kow-towing to them just encourages them even more.

Stupid whining moaning minnies.

Go away.

There there poor little oversensitive little people....its alright...dont cry...

I would send them a box of Kleenex as an apology .

Well, I think it IS disgusting.  When I went straight to Youtube to see what I shouldn't be looking at, I vomited on the spot when I saw that girl in her underwear.

Don't ask him which bit of his anatomy he vomited from.  Or what the "spot" was...

He was probably turned on by the exciting yet moderately priced range of Christmas goodies we're offering.

Don't forget to order your Christmas food before the 15th December!

Eight complaints out of the population of an entire country. Surely that can just be brushed under a rug and ignored.

Apparently "holidays are coming".

What, is it summer already? No, wait, you mean CHRISTMAS!

You'd think so, but at the same time there is some sort of journalistic imperative at stake. They'd be failing in their professional duty if they let a 'political correctness gone mad' story get away.

: Trout 25 November, 2009, 12:31:24 AM
The story's true. People did complain, and it's given how many complaints there were. The fact people are having an emotional response proves it's a story worth printing.

I think next year M&S should do an advert where women are forced by Gene Hunt to cook Xmas dinner at gunpoint and the attractive women have to model the new M&S line of underwear called "Submission" and then they have to give Gene Hunt and Stephen Fry blowjobs whilst they press a loaded gun with the safety off right against their cranium. If they get less than 7/10 for their fellatio skills they have to crawl on their hands and knees and bark like a dog and then eat dog food but it's fixed because Stephen Fry is gay so he gives all of them 0/10. Then it should show them giving birth in a windowless room with only a dodgy looking eastern european midhusband for company, and he's just sitting in the corner smoking. Three of the women give birth to boys, so they're still useful which means Wallace & Gromit and John Sergeant come in to make more boys. The 2 girl-birthers are put in the back of a lorry. The advert ends when one of them asks "Where are you taking us?" before we slowly fade to black.

See Kerrin, this is what happens when you enforce the '2000AD characters' rule in the Short Story Comp - thread seepage.  Sticky seepage at that.

Roger, you should work in advertising.  That's almost my favourite post you've ever made.
