The Oscar for Inapropriate Advertising goes to…

Found on ITV’s News Website:

“Online leisure firm has been slammed over an advert mentioning sex offender Gary Glitter by the industry’s own watchdog. The Advertising Standards Authority ruled the website breached decency rules over a theatre ticket mailout. Its advert stated: “Like Gary Glitter in a sweet shop, you too can have your pick of kiddy treats in London’s theatre world. “If you don’t know what to do with your lovely sprogs, get them off the X-Box and into the theatre. These shows will definitely be their cup of Ribena …” It showed two young boys’ faces with the title “Doing it for the kids“.

Pffft! Can you imagine the board meeting when they came up with that one?!
