We write to complain about the “Fanta” website,
The website features fun videos, downloads and the ‘Fanta Crew’. The ‘videos’ page include a Fanta advertisement, featuring whimsical, playful animation with brightly coloured characters obviously intended to appeal to young children. The ‘downloads’ page includes fun screen savers and wallpaper to download, featuring fun childlike characters drinking Fanta. The ‘Meet the Fanta Crew’ page features brightly coloured cartoon style children described as followed:
• Maude - A hip, inquisitive girl who’s known to find beauty and fun in the things around her. She’s one for the simple pleasures in life and loves to giggle. Her friends know they can look to her for where the party’s at.
• Tristan - A clever, independent, creative, street-smart guy who seems to be hardwired for mischief and fun. He’s always armed with sarcasm to lighten the mood around him, and he isn’t afraid to wear his sunglasses at night.
• Gigi - This cool, confident party girl isn't afraid to show her goofy side. She's friends with everyone, and can hold her own in any crowd, whether it's getting people off the couches and on to the dance floor or winning a belching contest with jocks.
• Floyd – A true music fan, he's always listening to bands you haven't heard of yet, but are about to. He's a music critic and writer, constantly on top of the music scene. Though, ironically, he's really awkward on the dance floor.
• Kimmy - An artist and rocker girl. She's pretty, but that's not the first thing you notice about her. A lot of guys are attracted to her because of her looks, but the more they get to know her the more they want to be her true friend. She's a free spirit, and is always up for adventure.
• Lhava Twins - This mysterious duo are the like the jokers in a deck of cards, you never know when they’re going to turn up. They’re friends with everyone, but nobody really knows their story. They’re never apart, and always seem to pop up wherever the action is.
• Todd - An impulsive prankster, his style is eclectic, a mash up of all the things he likes. At first glance, he might seem a little nerdy, but he makes it cool. And he’s too confident to care what anyone thinks of him anyhow.
