Virgin rapped for Dr Who ad
AN ADVERT for Virgin broadband starring former
star David Tennant has been banned after ad bosses said it was misleading.
The 40-second telly ad showed the actor’s image being ‘buffered’ as he crossed the screen, with his image repeatedly ‘stopping and starting’ and speech interrupted.
He later smashes the buffering symbol before saying: “Now from Virgin Media you could say bye bye to buffering with superfast fibre optic broadband.”
The ASA said Virgin’s ad exaggerated because it could not get rid of buffering completely.
A statement said: “This was exacerbated by the images in the ad of David Tennant destroying the “buffering” symbol.” took place back in 1971. This year, 80 women and 120 men whipped off their kit for the run that gives a whole new meaning to sack race.
