Nickelback and DFS advert banned

A DFS TV advert championing yet another frickin’ sale has been pulled after the retailer was found guilty of conning the viewers by enhancing the size of the sofas on screen. A grand total of 21 people complained about the ad leading the Advertising Standards Authority to ban it due to the misleading content;

"Because DFS had not been able to demonstrate that the sofas featured in the ad were accurate reflections of the actual sofas, we concluded that the ad was misleading," said the ASA.

If you can’t remember the god awful commercial, it’s the one where out of work actors are bouncing about playing air guitar in their front rooms to Nickelback’s ‘Rockstar’. We’re surprised it even made it to air. Watch the monstrosity here...
