WKD upset dog-lovers with new advert
VILE! HORRIBLE! NASTY! That's the general consensus from those sensitive souls on Twitter when faced with the latest WKD advertising campaign which suggests you get drunk on lurid blue booze rather than save a dog's life.
The ad says: "Just a few pounds a week could give this dog a home... it could also buy you a WKD". Obviously, the ad is tongue-in-cheek (like all WKD adverts) and, yes, while most of their ad output is pretty annoying, surely only an idiot would take this seriously.
Alas, there are many, many touchy idiots out there.
Not surprisingly though, WKD listened to the online furore and promptly pulled the ad. There have also been over 50 complaints lodged with the ASA over it.
