HYUNDAI 'TODDLER' COMMERCIAL PULLED OFF AIR IN AUSTRALIA


The Advertising Standards Bureau in Australia has pulled the Hyundai 'Toddler' spot off air this week, claiming it sent the wrong message to pre-schoolers about driving cars.
The spot was created by Kim Thorp and Howard Greive from Assignment Group NZ and directed by Tony Williams from Sydney Film Company, with post via Frame Set + Match, Sydney.
What do NZCC bloggers think of this decision?

...i think we should just rub it their face and do an ad with our toddlers beating their toddlers at cricket and then have the mums and dads pick up the kids in their Hundai cars with the caption along the lines of "The next generation Hundai xxx is still driving winners home"
