Yesterday evening I saw this ad twice, at 6:15 and at 6:58 during the news and during the

7:30 report. However, I have previously also seen this ad on channel 10 during The Doctors program between 13:00 and 14:00 hours.

The ad portrays young people sitting on the front of a cruise boat with their legs over the side. A program about water police pulled up a boat for this reason and explained that it was unlawful and very dangerous.

As above, young lady washing hair arms above head naked in shower facing viewer but no breasts shown. And then a much older man shaving in the basin in same bathroom.
So if the two were conversing with each other, then you're teaching young women it’s a perfectly acceptable thing to expose the body to a much older man, and insinuated sexuality (why else would she be naked showering and he shaving if they weren’t having sexual relations?)

0258/1314 August 2013Kellogg (Aust) Pty Ltd
This advertisement for Kellogg’s LCM “Split Stix” was broadcast during July 2013. It depicts a primary school-age boy in a typical school classroom at lunchtime. He takes an LCM Split Stix bar from his lunchbox and unwraps it, smiling quizzically at the product as he realises it is able to be split in two down the middle. He splits the LCM bar and takes a large, enthusiastic bite. He then picks up a paper plane from the desk in front of him and throws it out the open classroom window. The viewer follows the plane out the window as a joyful jingle begins. The plane flies past a tall tree with children playing in the school yard underneath, before heading over the roof of the school. The paper plane pauses on the eave of the building as an animated pigeon looks on. It then flies downward, re-entering the school building and flying past surprised children before landing back on the desk in front of the boy. He picks up the plane, looks smilingly at the plane and his remaining half of the LCM bar, before biting into the second half and again throwing the plane out the window. A female voiceover says “LCM Split Stix. Splits in two so it’s fun they can have all over again.”
