I’m now in Leicester and some of the local buses have this controversial advertising on. I’m amazed any bus operator let this out, although I know some expressed concern this weekend and most are now busy removing them following a deluge of complaints. It’s very clever from Channel 4, as unless they’re idiots, this was a deliberate campaign to get publicity for their new series of Naked Attraction. But why Arriva Bus let that go out is another matter. That it didn’t occur to them that a child might sit there and be photographed and mocked is bizarre, a media backlash was inevitable even if a large minority (or majority) was amused by it.
Anyway, at least I’m safely in Leicester.
