Scary Bus

As Halloween draws ever closer I see that the good people of Tulleys Farm (who are planning a Shocktober Fest) have fallen foul of a handful of people who have been "scared" by the adverts for the Fest that Tulleys Farm have used on around 100 buses that operate from South London into Sussex.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) are checking to see if if any rules have been broken. The Huffington Post quotes Stuart Beare, organiser of the event:
"The image of the zombie girl on our advertising is no worse than many images you'll see at this time of year in newspapers and magazines, on the Halloween costumes in the supermarket aisles and even on kids' TV programmes."
The furore will of course provide some very nice free PR for the event!

ASA did not investigate complaints last year over a similar advert, it has yet to rule on this year's advert.

    I do wonder whether anyone has actually been frightened by these adverts or perhaps, yet again, it is some sad little person getting offended/scared on behalf of others?

    Yet agin, I ask the question; Have we become a nation of timed, whinging, whimpy, scaredy cats?.....It is neither the same country which I grew up in, nor are the people the same as those I grew up with.

    But this year people are a lot more offended than they were last year. Offence seems to be spreading like a disease.

    I for one am offended there was no mention of buses & low bridges. Surely the *only* way to be certain of not falling foul of this is to become a zombie before the event.

    Tulleys Farm should be applauded for their pre-emptive Health & Safety advice!
