10:10 apologise for "sick" ad
That's right, if you don't promise to cut your carbon, the government is going to blow up your head. It's a simple but perhaps misguided message. As charitys, NGOs and environmentalists try to keep eco-fascism down, and logical 'people, planet, profit' arguments at the forefront of communications, 10:10 has done this.
"THIS IS SICK SICK SICK. How can people like this get away with this dispicable scare tactics? The people who participated in this and made this should be ASHAMED of themselves," reads one irate YouTube commenter.
The British public in their infinite vitriol has spoken. This extreme reaction is not a reflection of the inappropriateness of the advert, which was successful as far as it attracted attention, but is a knee-jerk reaction to a subject that people seem resistant to engage with. It's sad 10:10 have been pressurised into apologising for this.
