Commercial Banned For Showing Teen Fun

Kids can't have fun anymore according to the U.K.'s Advertising Standards authority which received 68 complaints about broadband provider Wanadoo's television commercial showing kids playing in a scrap yard and French kissing. The commercial has been banned because the ASA felt kids, apparently mindless drones, would imitate the behavior in the commercial and somehow become seriously injured or, god forbid, kiss each other. If anyone thinks pulling this commercial from television is going to stop kids from doing what kids do, they're living in an ABS After School Special world.
