Ethical Advertising: Kids With Guns

This ad was banned for encouraging violence in kids. It's a pretty accurate depiction of video games and everything that video games stand for in youth. But it has moms everywhere up in arms.

It all links back to the age-old censorship debate. If this was shown at a gallery would it be banned as well and if it were, wouldn't everyone be rattling sabres about nanny and police states?

If advertising is a reflection of a culture, then this ad, and the reaction it created, is spot on.

What do you think my readers?
