Default Iceland Xmas Ad blocked on TV due to the Rain Forest

Was just Debated on SkyNewsHD


Ad on this link
https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...eace-orangutan


Iceland’s Christmas campaign has been banned from TV because it has been deemed to breach political advertising rules.

So they just want people to think that using so much palm oil is fine?

That's awful, people should be aware of the effect stuff they buy has on the environment. I saw this video/article posted on Fb earlier, so heartbreaking

I got sent this

There's a Rang-tan in my bedroom
And i don't know what to do

She plays with all my teddies
and keeps borrowing my shoe.

She destroys all of my houseplants
And she keeps shouting "Ooh"

She throws away my chocolate
and she howls at my shampoo.

There's a Rang-tan in my bedroom
And i don't want her to stay
So i told the naughty Rang-tan
That she had to go away

oh rang-tan in my bedroom
Just befor you go
Why were you in my bedroom ?
I really want to know

There's a human in my forest
And i don't know what to do
He destroyed all of our trees !
For your food and your shampoo

There's a human in my forest
And i don't know what to do
He took away my mother
And i'm scared he'll take me too

There are humans in my forest
and i don't know what to do
They're burning it for Palm oil
So i thought i'd stay with you

Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom
Now i know what to do
I'll fight to save your home
And i'll stop you feeling blue

I'll share your story far and wide
So others can fight too

Oh Rang-tan in my bedroom
I swear it on the stars
The futures not yet written
But i'll make sure its ours.


I don't know who wrote it but i thoughtit was apt for this thread.

itís a really hard-hitting advert but at the same time, awareness does need to be raised on the impact that it has, so it needs to be hard-hitting

It advert has been banned because it may stop some people from buying more crap we don't really need. More plastic, more useless sh1t we'll never use, more useless gifts that'll end up in landfill or dumped in the ocean...

Merry Christmas, buy more stuff.
