Wicked Campers ad banned for encouraging drivers to run over kangaroos

Yet another ad from van hire company Wicked Campers has fallen foul of the Advertising Standards Bureau, this time for encouraging drivers to run over kangaroos.

Signage with red splatter marks and red lettering read: “Kangaroo’s. Run the fuckers down!”

The ASB did not pick up on the poor grammar in the copy, with an apostrophe erroneously appearing in the word ‘kangaroo’s’.

Wicked campers is a serial offender for ads that rankle the ASB. Three ads were censured in July 2009.
