For mayonnaise (or something similar)that was removed due to complaints..... if you can't recall it.....bloke dressed and acting like a New York Deli worker, takes the place of the wife and mother , kisses the father goodbye and calls him *sweetcheeks*"missing you already" etc........

What do you reckon? Were they right to remove it or is it an over reaction? xx

Cannot recall the advert but would say the world is losing their sense of humour. We wont be able to speak soon for fear of saying the wrong thing.

Thought the advert was really funny. Still I suppose some people would complain.
