    Obvious jokes are too obvious.
    I’ll bet The Mail has something to say about it… 🙄

    “We plan to talk to the makers of Marmite about how we can work together on animal welfare.”

    Interesting relationship.

    Veiled protesting by Vegemite lovers.

    We plan to talk to the makers of Marmite about how we can work together on animal welfare

    Marmite’s part of the Unilever group, which makes amongst other things soap and cosmetics. Which will contain ingredients which at some point have been tested on animals*. It sounds like RSPCA basicaly saying “pay us a load of money and we’ll launder** your reputation by issuing a more definitive statement”.

    *as will the ingredients in BodyShop and Lush

    **see what I did there?

    Having heard on the radio this morning how the RSPCA invent cruelty cases that they can take to court because they get money from the publicity I’d be very wary of anything they say on this matter.

    Is it possible for the RSPCA to sound any more sanctimonious in such a short statement?

    250 complaints in a day? What the heck is wrong with people?

    No time for the RSPCA at all – a badly managed charity staffed by failed traffic wardens, and it’s one of the worst for outrageous chief exec pay, something like a quarter of a million last time I looked. Plenty of more worthwhile places to put your money.

    This is perhaps one of the clearest signs of their misguided priorities, since it’s OBVIOUS that it’s a tongue in cheek advert and the only people being offended are the sort of people I don’t give a toss about anyway.

    Great advert 😀

    250 complaints in a day? What the heck is wrong with people?

    Complainings too easy these days, you used to have to write a letter or phone someone up, these days just click a link or ‘like’ a facebook page.

    Hence why the ASA is viewing 250 complains as almost trivial rather than banning the advert like it would ave done if it had 250 complaints 15 years ago.

    The RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) said it understood that “animal lovers are concerned on our behalf”.

    “We plan to talk to the makers of Marmite about how we can work together on animal welfare.”

    I’ve now got a mental image of Greenpeace recovering sea birds from oil slicks, only with Marmite and kittens.

    Well as an ad it’s worked rather well, we’re discussing it on a bike forum.

    Great advert – humour, silliness, self deprecation and good for brand awareness.

    Can we also vote it ad of the year to counter the objectors?

    I liked the pixelated dog face.

    self deprecation

    Yeah Marmite have an interesting approach to advertising which seems to be “quite a lot of people think Marmite is minging” and has now added “most people have a jar hiding at the back of a cupboard somewhere because they bought some once as an experiment and realised it was minging, but Marmite never ever goes off so they can’t chuck it out”.

    Good things about living in Scotland #1854737272759793 – no RSPCA.

    The complaints were probably rigged and all part of the marketing campaign.

    Brilliant!

    The 250 complainants should be taken out and shot in front of their families. Preferably with a very small calibre weapon. In the knees.

    So that I’m not labelled irresponsible I’d like to add that the shooter should be wearing ear and eye protection and ensure his backstop is suitable for the calibre being used.

    I suppose all publicity is good publicity and to keep Marmite in the national news for a couple more days at the cost of £18000 I guess it is a fairly cheap deal.
