Does This Marmite Advert Leave a Bad Taste In Your Mouth?

By Sam Gibbs on at

Love it or hate it, you can't deny Marmite is a powerful brand. And when it decided to take a very cheeky poke at some sensitive subjects in its new "End Marmite Neglect" ad campaign, it seemingly ruffled quite a few feathers. 250 in fact. For an ad, in less than 24 hours. Impressive.

I can't say I'm offended by the scenes, but then I neither have animals nor children, so I'm not really one to speak. However, some 250 people have complained to the ASA in just 24 hours after it was broadcast on ITV. Now the ASA's got to look into the matter and see whether it's right to open an investigation.

I guess you're likely to either love it or hate it, right? So which side are you on? [YouTube via The Guardian]
