160

Burger King has edited a television advertisement after complaints it mimicked using a bong and glorified drug use. Two complaints were made to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) about the burger giant’s advertisement, which featured a man with his back to the camera “while making a slurping sound” while the group of people he’s with eat sundaes and pies. The advert’s voiceover said “temperatures are high, so cool off with Burger King’s summer treats”.
