That shameless Hummer kid!

Another from Slate on the new Hummer ad:

"This is an incredibly well made ad. I hate it."

"Conclusion: The Hummer kid hoards earth's precious resources, sating his own vanity at the expense of less fortunate, voiceless members of society."

"Of course, some will love the shameless Hummer kid and his take-no-prisoners, win-at-all-costs individualism. Not coincidentally, these are the sort of people who buy Hummers. It would make no sense for the company to aim this spot at folks craving a quiet, go-along-get-along image, because those people aren't buying 40-ton cars. The Hummer kid is a me-first kid, and the Hummer is without doubt a me-first vehicle."

Should ad makers be responsible for the ethical implications of an ad? Should car makers be responsible for the ethical implications of their product? Should car buyers be responsible for the ethical implications of their car?

The ad can be viewed at hummers site or right here in nice Quicktime format when you are a super adgrunt.

Fun with Foster's, decapitation by waterfowl.

Foster's are imposing a self-ban, and voluntarily decided not to show their latest Foster's Lager commercial before 9pm as it apparantly gave children nightmares.

The commercial masquerading as a wildlife documentary, shows a reporter having his head bitten off by a pelican, with the tagline "don't lose your head". When it aired it immediately got 15 complaints to the Independent Television Commission.MediaGuardian reports.

This is not the first time Foster's have been in trouble over this campaign, their last ad got over 180 complaints, but was "cleared of bad taste" RealBeer reports.

South African Commercial Cockfight (the chicken variety)

In the war of the chickens, Kentucky Fried Chicken has won its advertising battle with Chicken Licken. Chicken Licken was also ordered to publish an apology for contravening the ASA's code of conduct.

"In complaining to the ASA, KFC submitted that the ad was "disparaging in the extreme as it shows the colonel to be listless and somewhat impotent until he eats Chicken Licken."
