2DTV Advert Banned for showing Bush putting a videotape into a toaster and David Beckham writing a christmas list then asking his wife how to spell “DVD”.
Its creators have been told that they must get the American president’s permission if they want to be irreverent about him. “I asked some at the BACC if they would apply the code in the same way if we did a sketch about Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden. He said, ‘Absolutely’. The code says you have to seek authorisation. We would write Mr Bush a letter but he’s a busy man. As for bin Laden, he’s a little hard to track down at the moment.”
