    Should this advert be banned? *Warning - Graphic Content*

    I don't know why there are fanny wipes getting in a twist about this. Any video that blurs out animals faces gets the thumbs up from me.

    Marmite advert faces ban as animal welfare campaigners either love it or hate it

    The makers of Marmite have stayed true to their "love or hate it" ethos after broadcasting an advert parodying the work of animal welfare campaigners, which received hundreds of complaints.



    The advert features Marmite welfare officers visiting the homes of people who are neglecting their jars of yeasty spread and rescuing them from a life of abandonment.

    One officer gets particularly choked up after finding a "baby Marmite jar" lingering at the back of the kitchen cupboard virtual unused.

    "I just hadn't seen one that small," the officer says to his sympathetic colleague.

    The tongue-in-cheek ad provoked 250 complaints to The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) after it made its debut broadcast on Monday.

    People took to social networking sites to complain, one Facebook user said:

    "Your new advert is very bad taste. Animal abuse is no laughing matter and think it's very wrong to jokingly use such a subject as a marketing scheme to increase your sales."

    However animal agencies, such as PETA have welcomed the campaign saying it reminds viewers of the hard job that animal welfare officers do.

    Some people are just too fuking sensitive.
    Why ban an ad just because a couple of overly sensitive twits get upset.

    This sensitivity gene.....doesn't come instinctively or naturally.

    Invented for those whom are easily manipulated.
    Modern social engineering.

    I thought it was a great ad.

    I have to hold my hands up though and admit an Aussie mate "turned" me and I now prefer Vegemite.

    I'm all for animal welfare, but I thought the marmite ad was quite clever. Don't see how it detracts from animal welfare, at all.

    Unfortunately little has changed in the years since the life of brian was released, there are simply too many fanatics in this world with no sense of humor. I sincerely hope that Unilever have the balls to tough it out, people like this deserve to be wound up and the rest of us will appreciate Unilever for doing so

    Agree, it doesn't in the slightest. It's a funny advert and anybody who would have a problem with it ain't right in the head.

    Many good adverts parody something, these days, and this one has been done very well. Please don't ban it!

    And this while parts of America decide if they should ban the word 'brown and citizen'.

    Brown being racist and citizen offensive to immigrants!
