The Nanny State Strikes Again

Will it ever end. Probably not. The Hyundai Commercial with the driving baby has been banned in Australia according to the SMH:

The Advertising Standards Board ordered Hyundai to pull the advertisement for its Santa Fe model on Tuesday after it ruled that it depicted under-age driving and promoted unlawful behaviour.

It also ruled that the wearing of seatbelts instead of approved child restraints was a matter of safety and should be discouraged in ads.

Some days you just want to move to another country. Today is one of those days.

Enjoy it from YouTube though if you’re Australian, you’ll never see it on TV again. (I could only find the NZ version at YouTube, the Australian version is identical accept for the voiceover at the end)
