I am gemused to see that Nanny has got her knickers in a right old state over the tongue in cheek marketing campaign by a travel comparison website, dealchecker.co.uk.
Nanny's chums in the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) were less than pleased with dealchecker's July email campaign "earn with your burn".
ASA got terribly huffy, and said that the competition "could be seen to trivialise sunburn".
Oddly enough, there were prizes of suncream for the winner and runners-up. Additionally, during the six-week competition period it featured numerous blog posts on sun safety, regularly tweeted sun care tips etc.
Despite this some members of the public, clearly who were annoyed about the wet summer, complained to ASA about it.
"We... considered that the promotion could encourage recipients to get sunburnt in order to be able to enter the competition, and concluded that the competition was irresponsible."
The competition is not allowed to appear again in its current form, and the website has removed all the relevant content.
However, I will wager that the ensuing free media publicity over ASA's decision has done dealchecker nothing but good!
