Whatever next?!

Marks & Spencer’s Christmas advertising campaign has been accused of sexism.

The ASA is assessing eight complaints it has received over a line spoken by Life on Mars actor Philip Glenister in the spot. Glenister says: “Oh come on, it’s Christmas”, adding “that girl prancing around in her underwear” before switching to model Noemie Lenoir who is seen in her underwear.

Personally, I think Noemie looks fine and the eight people who complained need to get a life! What do you think? Call me on 01373 814696.

    I saw this advert yesterday, and as a woman, I actually did find his tone a bit gruff and uncomfortable. I'm not offended enough to complain (clearly it wouldn't matter if I was) but considering women are decision makers when it comes to the M&S audience I think it shows a lack of thought towards women and it was clearly written by a man!
