As discussed I have serious concerns of one of the McDonalds Restaurant commercial played last night during the news around 6.45pm.

The commercial, which I only saw once, as I turned on the set, was showing drivers in various scenes with food in their hands, or the most concerning scene was a female driver beating time on the steering wheel without a secure grip on the steering wheel.

An advertisement of " don't be a tosser " is a good community message but to show a cigarette being tossed is unbelievable. There has been soooooo much anti smoking ads and you chose to show the cigarette being tossed. Sorry but you guys are the tossers . Surely there is many more products that the public "toss" eg soft drink bottles, take away containers, lollie wrappers only to name a few. Please clean up your ad!!!! Thank you

0200/1527 May 2015Wix Web Builder
Every time I see this ad on Foxtel it offends me and disturbs me that a violent message is being given to young people. You see a teenage band recording in a studio and at the end the young guitarist smashes his guitar and then picks up the microphone stand and smashes the glass window of the recording studio. This is NOT funny and very aggressive.
