While it says it may be in “poor taste”, the Advertising Standards Complaints Board says a radio ad where one man offers to show another his “sausage” does not breach the rules. “Want to see my sausage mate?” a man says in the ad for Franklin Country Meats, which played on Newstalk ZB. “I’ve been waiting for you to come over to impress you with it,” he continues. ““I’ve had it all wrapped up, ready and waiting.” Complainant, R. Foster said the ad “was totally unacceptable” due to its sexual connotations and “should be taken off air immediately”. The ASCB said while the advertisement “may be in poor taste, the innuendo did not reach the threshold to breach the Advertising Codes” and “it was unlikely to cause serious of widespread offence”.
