It’s garbage, mate!

Via Advertising Age apparently the U.K. recently ban television junk food ads that targeted children under the age of 16. And now that ban has been expanded to include billboards, newspapers, internet and in movie theaters. It’ll be interesting to see if this strategy will lower child obesity rates across the pond. If so maybe we shoe take a page from Ye ‘Ole Book of British Banishment. Plus I know I could go with seeing any more Hungerectomy billboards on buses.
