Who is that evil clown?

It seems the new Sony Bravia TV spot has upset a few sensitive souls in the UK.

However unlike most of us opinionated adfolk they’re not simply unhappy about the choice of music used in the ad.

Believe it or not they consider the ad to be reminiscent of the 9/11 World Trade Centre attack.

Yes you read that correctly.

The Advertising Standards Authority has received complaints from viewers who found the ad ‘disturbing’ and felt that it was inappropriate ‘in today’s climate of terror.’

Obviously these people have never lived in a run down Glasgow council estate like the one in the ad.

Perhaps if they had they’d be tough enough to handle a few exploding cans of paint on their telly.
