Would You Ban This Ad?

I love censorship. Apparently, this was one of New Zealand's favourite ads until (or maybe because) - it was pulled from the air by the NZ Advertising Standards Authority. They felt that it gave out the "wrong message" to underage drivers. Having lived in a town where two nine year olds were caught joyriding - one pumping the pedals, the other driving using a monkey wrench on a wheel-less steering column - I don't think it was ads like this that put the idea in their heads. Mind you, I wouldn't swap my Land Rover for a fleet of Hyundai's. And these days,girlies aren't content to sit on the beach watching their dudes shred, right? What do you call a grom in Pampers anyway?
