      Personally I think that truth in advertising is a good thing and wish that these strict standards would be brought to the U.S.

      This is absolutley ridiculus. So your telling me that the axe comertial that when he sprays it on all of the sudden there are naked girls or they come running is tooken seriously over there? Did they ban that commertial? Oh but they ban the iphone one, no **** its an exageration it makes half the comertials funny now days if not they would be hella dry. all they would have to do is put a clock in the background were you can see it fly by faster than real time so its obviouse to them that they speeded it up and then it would be factual, by calculating the time that the clock in the background says. Bleh bloody british have to mutch time on their hands, go get a job or a hobby. lol

      Am I to understand that because 17 people complained, they banned the add? At that rate there would be no advertising as we know it. Which come to think of it, may not be so bad...
