UK Government Criticized For Frightening Climate Change Television Ads
A bunch of British people are freaking out right now!
The UK government is being criticized by Britain’s independent advertising watchdog agency over a “scary” climate change themed television campaign.
In the ad, a father reads a bedtime story to his child, which warns about the dangers of CO2. At the end of the story, the child asks, “Is there a happy ending?” The narrator then declares it’s up to us to determine how the story will end.
The Advertising Standards Association spokesman says nearly 1,000 complaints about the ads have been received – but we don’t see the big deal. A father warning his child about the dangers of pollution? We wish more parents would do that!
