Heinz Beanz Advert For ‘Can Song’ Banned For Encouraging ‘Unsafe’ Behaviour

Post  dirge on Wed Nov 23, 2016 11:43 am




A Heinz advert teaching viewers how to use tin cans to drum out a song has been banned for encouraging behaviour that risks health and safety.
The advert featured children, teenagers and adults using empty or full Heinz Beanz tins to drum out the rhythm of the song, with the catchline “Learn the #CanSong”.

Nine viewers complained that the advert encouraged “unsafe practice” and six believed it featured behaviour that could be dangerous for children to copy.

Heinz said the advert showed people tapping the can on its sealed top, bottom or sides - all “safe” surfaces - and did not show anyone putting their hand or fingers inside the can.


The company said consumers had uploaded their own versions of the song onto social media sites, “which was evidence that copying the ad was not prejudicial to their health or safety”.

It beggars belief. That the improvisation of household goods in making music. Is now considered to be unsafe.
What next? To ban the use of broom handles to be used in the making of a temporary stretcher, as you might get a splinter?
Absolutely bonkers

Well as seen I clearly cannot be a snowflake, based on the methodology of what one is.

Thanks for proving I am not one smelly and contradicting yourself.

Cheers buddy
