Norway bans zombie advert from daytime TV

19 posts in this topic

A commercial for sports goods company XXL has been dropped from daytime television in Norway after viewers complained it was "stupid and provocative".

The advert features a hoard of zombies rampaging in a suburb, with residents fighting back with golf clubs, footballs and tennis rackets as weapons drew multiple complaints when it was broadcast on Norwegian prime-time television over the weekend.

:clap: It seems they don't have a very good sense of humour, I find it amusing.

So do I, but must say its not the thing I would want the kids to see while eating their beans on toast, especially if they haven`t done their homework yet.

I like freaky things, but a lot of people don`t. Maybe they should only screen it on certain channels at certain times.

The things people get upset over. Then the things they should be upset over they let slide.

Oh .... I'm surprised because hanging upside down is supposed to be very good for the spine .... gives the vertebrae a chance to properly stretch out. Maybe you should get that looked at, lol!

broke my back in April, only the L1, but still sore, so maybe i will give hanging upside down a miss for the moment, but will bear it in mind for the future, could do with being stretched a few more inches. :cry:

I think it's a great advert. But not suitable for kids so should definately be after the watershed of 9pm. I love zombie films nobrainzombis.gif

My young daughter burst out laughing at it, she asked to see it again, and the laughing continued..... You have to admit, it was funny.. I loved it, I thought the idea of using sporting goods to beat zombies was fun
