Shockingly STUPID Xmas Advert by Sainsbury`s ?

Just come across this advert by Sainsbury`s for their Xmas ad on telly..

 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6392857/Schoolboy-plays-plug-Sainsburys-ad-trumps-John-Le...

I think it is shocking... no pun intended.... that they should be showing this, it gives off the message that it is OK for kids to mess around and play with electric plugs for FUN...

Sorry.... but  they should have thought Health and Safety first, ...

I do hope it gets pulled.... again... no pun intended...

Apart from the holes for his head and arms, how on earth did they assume it's a plug? Unless I've missed something. Looks like a kid dressed as a star to me.

??What are adverts??Smiley As I hardly ever watch 'live' TV, I whizz through them at 16 or 32 frames a second and never take notice.

I'm more bothered about the message that gravy goes on the Christmas tree?

I've been getting to grips with the deepest recesses of the Android operating system to try to get my phone to work. I think it's scrambled my brain. Google's settings are so convoluted.

Well @JonoH if the truth be told I'm more bothered about the fact that people actually believe in this stuff in the first place!
