Toyota GT86 Ad Banned Because it Promotes 'Dangerous Driving'

This does not make much sense, but the Advertising Standards Agency here in UK has banned the Toyota GT86 advert called “The Real Deal” after only two complaints.

Some viewers complained that it was “irresponsible” and “condoned dangerous driving”.

The ad features a computer animated world, where a man gets into a GT86 to escape from the Police at hight speeds through the streets before jumping through a glass barrier into the real world.

ASA also said the commercial “glamourised the wreckless manner in which the car was driven.”

We have a real hard tome understanding this ban. What next? ASA will ban Top Gear?

You can see the “banned” 90 second spot right here.
