Nanny Hates M&S Advert



Poor old Marks and Spencer have fallen foul of the "too much time on their hands" brigade, wrt the M&S Christmas advert featuring Philip Glenister and French underwear model Noemie Lenoir.

A "staggering" 8 people have complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) over the advert, because they feel that the sight of Ms Lenoir cavorting in her underwear is sexist.

Glenister adds fuel to the fire of these "we have no lives" 8, by saying:

"That girl prancing around in her underwear."

Doubtless at least one person can always be found who is offended/annoyed by anything shown on TV. Commonsense should dictate that TV cannot be "sanitised" to the extent that absolutely no one will be "offended".

As Basil Fawlty once said:

"Too many people with too much time on their hands, with nothing better to do than complain.

That's exactly how Nazi Germany started
!"

Well folks, in the interests of redressing the balance, for a modest fee of around £100K I am more than happy to prance around in my Jockey Y Fronts in the next M&S advert.

What say you?

  1. It seems to me to be in some people's genes to complain and try to make others lives as sad as theirs.
    I can honestly say that no advert has ever offended me and, if any had, I would not watch them twice nor purchase that brand.....I do however get annoyed by the constant barrage of ads from Nanny; Pay your tv tax or we'll have you...Pay your car tax or we'll have you.....Don't drink/eat/smoke too much or we'll have you etc etc etc.
    The recent emotional blackmail ad regarding climate change was the most annoying because it cost £11m and I helped fund it......I must admit the woman dancing about in her underwear is rather appealing and I do hope M&S don't take Ken up on his generous offer....I must say as some one that remembers Twiggy at the height of her career that she is far more attractive now in my view.....I hope Mrs Tonk doesn't read this;-)


    Enjoy dancing about in your underwear responsibly.

  2. T-Mobile adverts piss me right off but I dont complain, I just mute the telly and go make a cuppa.

    Nothing on telly/radio/internet ect should offend/annoy you as you can just turn off/over.

    Cyberbullying is another one that gets my goat. If youre on facebook and someone calls you a cunt, swithch the fucking thing off and go out and make some 3d friends. Thats what happens when you wrap kids in cotton wool; they cant deal with life. When I was at school I got bullied for a time by someone who would regularly punch me in the face really quite hard. When I left school I learned self defence. These days, someone calls you a crusty cheese dick on facebook and you top yourself. WTF?

    ban/censor/council/compenstae.
    Just fuck off!

    (Sorry for the over use/reliance on / marks in this post; and for the terrible fucking language. Its Friday and Im gasping for a pint.)

    It's a good job that Grumpy Old Twat's version didn't get played instead.

    There would have been a lot more than 8 complaints!

    I sincerely hope M & S told the complainants to 'get lost!'

    You said, Ken, 'That's exactly
    how Nazi Germany started!'

    And under nu Labour, we have gone a long way towards a similar loss of civil liberties, for our own good, of course!

    Sorry Ken,

    I think i would complain if i saw you prancing about in your kecks.... but the M&S girl was very easy on the eye.

    Maybe we should call up and complain there aren't more adverts with her in her underwear...

    Agree with you Bucko re: Cyberbullying.

    What's wrong with replying 'Come and say that to my face you feckless fuck' then stick the heid in them (Glasgow kiss) if they do.

    Real bully's tend to be physical and believe me, it's surprising how mashing someones nose with your head can change their attitude somewhat.

    Tonk, it seems people these days spend their time looking for things to be offended about.

    That said, i was offended by the climate change propoganda. Especially as the 'science' is based on data that the cc 'scientists' will not allow anyone to independently evaluate.

    Would anyone else on here be interested in chipping in a few quid to raise a little more than £100,000 in order to stop Ken prancing about in his underwear? Please!!

  14. Ken,

    Underwear, no. Nanny Knows Best thong, but of course!

    I like the comments wrt facebook bullies. Have people forgotten how to shrug their shoulders and say, "Fuck off . . . go fuck yourself . . . kiss my ass . . . bite me, etc?"

    I mean, how were these people raised?

    Basically it's not only gone down the pan but someone's pulled the chain. Even the weather's crappier than it used to be - previously I wouldn't have thought that possible.

    Can't we get a few dozen Nanny Knows Best readers to send in complaints about absolutely everything on television and see if we can make the whole stupid system grind to a halt?

    How right you are! In my day, this wouldn't have happened: anyone who had tried imposing the kind of crap we have to put up with would have been introduced very quickly to the sharp end of a javelin, or had an appointment to 'play' with the "pussycats" in the arena. The trouble is, we (the people of this country) have just taken the crap doled out by our 'betters'. We've lost the will to stand up and fight back.

  20. Woulld they be complaining if the advert had a man also prancing around in his underwear? Nope,they would still complain that the advert was "sexually provocative".
