If you want to talk about ads that bug you, go to Adstandards.com.au. Don't bug your mate or a bartender or a taxi cab driver. Because they won't be able to get them pulled from the air.

    Why are they all wearing such terrible clothes? Bad ads = bad dress sense, too?

    That sucks. I thought that when it said "tell someone who cares" it was like sarcasm or something, like the people were saying "don't be such a pussy, it's just an ad, get over yourself." But noooo! It's a stupid censorship thing where nobody is allowed to be offensive and everybody has to be watching over their shoulders that someone will sue them for being offended at absolutely nothing. Australia joins the list of countries that are now postmodernist politically correct bullshit havens.
