I agree with the message of this, but it's clearly aimed at children, who have no buying power.

Trying to manipulate kids into getting parents to care what they buy is a low blow and shouldn't be in TV. So I agree with it being refused to be broadcast.

Such a shame that they couldn't deliver the message in a way that didn't target kids.

^ Honestly, manipulating kids into doing the right thing is the utilitarian choice because it's gonna cause more good than harm (maybe no harm at all). I can't believe I'm saying this but kids are the future.

Yeah I agree.

Also like, adults care about kids... and the way to get people to care is to care.

And even adults can find this animation moving, as they have.

Although I guess it's hard if you have a kid begging for something, and perhaps no idea how to do it or maybe don't have the money for it. Buttt.... that is being a parent I guess.

To be honest I think the message is done this way to make it as simple as possible, I think adults respond to this kind of style of advert just as much as kids do. It certainly had an impact on me.

I think it's disgraceful that it was banned. Very important information being portrayed and very big kudos to Iceland for their action on removing palm oil products.
