Ban for Costa’s avocado advert
GRACE JONES (A VIEW TO A KILL)
GORGEOUS Grace, 70, refused to remain a slave to the rhythm and branched into films, notably
in 1981 and last year’s PRODNOSE ad bosses have banned an advert by coffee shop Costa – because it makes a joke about FRUIT!
The advert featured a voice-over saying: “Oh, there’s a great deal on ripen-at-home avocados. Sure, they’ll be hard as rock for the first 18 days, three hours and 20 minutes, then they’ll be ready to eat, for about 10 minutes, then they’ll go off,” before encouraging consumers to head to the coffee chain for a bacon roll or egg muffin instead.
Two dickwads moaned that the promotion discouraged consumers from selecting fresh fruit.
And he Advertising Standards Authority said consumers would interpret the ad as a comparison between the experience of eating an avocado and a bacon roll or egg muffin.
It ruled the ad must not be broadcast again.
An insider said: “For the love of f**k!”
