The Poster/billboard has "Buy my Feckin DVD" Which I know is a slogan for the TV show but as my 7 year old read it asked me what "Feckin" meant then continued to try to make sense of the ad with the word with my other three children, I think this is not only offensive advertising but certainly inappropriate language.

The associated TV ads have previously been considered by the board in decisions 0179/13 and 0180/13, and found to breach the Responsible Children’s Marketing Initiative (‘RCMI’). The app provides the user with daily facts on a range of topics including “the world around us”, “the human body” and “silly”. The app is available for download on Google Play and at the App Store, and the “exciting facts” can be “shared”, along with Kellogg marketing, by sending them via email, Facebook, twitter or SMS. The exciting facts are promoted as being suitable for writing on the specially-designed packets of LCM Original Cereal Bars.
