A Ford Mustang commercial has been banned in the UK after a full 12 people saw and were offended by the ad. 🙄 They felt so strongly by the ad as to write Britain’s incredibly strict Advertising Standard Authority to complain.
This Ford Mustang commercial features scenes of overstressed and bored office professionals with a voiceover reading the famous Dylan Thomas poem “Do not go gentle into that good night.” The only driving scene features the Mustang pulling out of a parking garage and driving calmly down a city street. That, apparently constitutes aggressive driving in the UK, at least according to the ASA’s standards, which resulted in the ad being banned. Check out this highly dangerous(?) video inside. 🤔
