I don't know if I'm putting this in the right place but here goes.

There is a tv currently showing on tv for a weetabix drink and it shows theperson falling out the window backwards after waking up in hi suit!!


Why do these adverts get passed I mean surely this will encourage people to do the horrible practice of sleeping in their clothes which quite frankly is wholly irresponsible.


Oh and maybe people will now chuck themselves backwards out of a window for good measure too.

Im OUTRAGED. Wont somebody please think of the children

    The whole point he's young and parties every night, comes home falls into bed and sleeps. There's no time for breakfast as he's got to be at work at the awfully early time of 9AM, as he was up so late the night before partying, sleep is more important than breakfast.

    It's the quickest way to get something in him and at the meeting on time. If it were me I'd probably still be half asleep.

    Oh, totally.
    I saw an advert* recently where a man in a mask and cape would go around town and beat up people for seemingly no reason. He'd also drive irresponsibly and had some sort of vendetta against a poor chap in makeup who was clearly suffering from some sort of mental illness.
    What sort of example is this to our poor children?

    *Possibly a film

    Children do sometimes get influenced by adverts - so my Mum tells me!

    A 3 year old in the 1980s... The house was too quiet. My mum goes to find me. Bathroom door closed. "uh oh" Opens door. There's this white thing in the middle of the room happily shaking a bottle of talc everywhere while singing the Shake and Vac jingle! :rotfl:

    I do love that story!

    That weetabix advert annoys me as when he gets to the meeting he has a croissant on the desk that he moves away. So he didn't need to have breakfast on the run. He had breakfast in work waiting for him so it's a pointless ad anyway.

    No, it's the truth .

    Then there was this documentary about a chap who was bitten by a spider and it made him slightly doo lally and dress up in a red and blue costume. The poor lad then thought he was a crimefighter. Bless.

    I agree about this advert. It encourages people to do silly things. I slept in all my same clothes for a week and drank this weetabix stuff and nearly broke my neck when I kept dropping out of my sixth floor window.
    Am proud I only have one sourpuss on my ignore list
