I’m convinced now they’re trying to create more annoying adverts every time.

I find the amount of dry Weetabix shown in their ad quite disconcerting. My mouth dries out just watching this:

I knew the second I saw this ad that it would be banned. It looked exactly like they were offering a service where you could get multiple takeaways from different companies in one order. What were they thinking?

I’m astonished by the spokeswoman they quote in that article. No apology or admitting they got it wrong, she even seems to imply that the ASA or even the people who complained are idiots who misunderstood the ad, when they were the ones who misrepresented their own service.

My exact first comment when I saw the ad was "well that's nothing like real life. 1) nothing ever arrives at the same time and 2) you'd get 14 deliveries from 12 different takeaways".

Lots of complaints about the peloton advert where a woman suffers life changing exercise over a year to go from 116 pounds to 112 after her sexist boyfriend buys her a Christmas present.
