Stop exposing in front of the kids — 11 Comments

  1. So I guess our kids are fully insured, have a pet plan, payday loan, ppi sorted and a claim against the PE teacher for personal injury? Or maybe, just maybe, kids are more influenced by other things than adverts….

    • They also have dozens of bank accounts, credit cards and take a few flashy holidays every year.  Peer influence means nothing.

  2. And you can't have a show on the lobotomiser without it being sponsored by some gobshite or another. Sometimes the mute button just isn't enough. on the rare occasion that I want to see something I'll record it, then whiz through the ads when playing it back.

    If only AdBlock for TV were a possibility.

    • I don't mind those sponsorship ads.  When I'm zipping through the breaks at 30x they're a handy marker to hit "play".  I agree about the AdBlock idea though.  I have often thought that the inventor of such a device would make millions, though he'd probably make billions from the advertisers who would doubtless buy the patent.

  3. I haven't had s television hook up in so long that I don:t know if booze ads are still shown. I do know that cigarette ads were banned from broadcast TV before I banned broadcast/cable/sat TV from my life. Too bad I never had any children so I could not expose them?

    Oh, and I had to look up "qango". Never heard that one before.
