FAMOUS CHRISTMAS-STORY AD STIRS CONTROVERSY

... exactly 100 years ago this Christmas, the British troops, worn and weary in their midnight trenches, heard a familiar tune come wafting over the battlefield. It was the German troops, just a few yards away in trenches of their own, singing the traditional Christmas Carol, “Stille Nacht.” English speakers know the song better as “Silent Night.”

One by one, the enemy combatants of both armies rose from their trenches and carefully crossed into “no-man’s land,” an unexpected and uneasy truce beginning to form.

As dawn broke that Christmas Day, the men who only the day before sought to slay one another were exchanging gifts and engaging in a friendly game of football upon the deadly battlefield.

In a retelling of this amazing true story, the United Kingdom’s third biggest supermarket, Sainsbury’s – together with the Royal British Legion and the ad agency AMV BBDO – created a moving advertisement depicting that holy night and fictionalizing a gift of a chocolate bar from a British to a German soldier.

Sainsbury’s now sells that vintage-looking candy bar in its stores, with half the purchase price donated to the Royal British Legion charity.

But using the famous World War I story to promote a grocery store, many have argued, was a dirty trick. Hundreds of complaints poured in to the U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority claiming the ad “offensive” or claiming it was “misleading” for not immediately revealing itself to be an advertisement.

The U.K.s advertising regulator, however, has now announced it has no plans to launch an investigation, much less ban the advertisement.  And, I think, told the blighters to go bugger themselves with a dildo shaped replica of Prince Charles.  [Full]

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

That dildo-shaped replica of Bonnie Prince Charlie gives whole new meaning to the term "stocking stuffer".
