Vulgar advertising

15 August 2011

Dear Sir,

How can CellOne sink so low with their recent advertising?

A few months ago they were advertising on television with some rude people sitting in a movie theatre eating and drinking and burping very loudly and making cat sounds. I did call a young man at CellOne after I saw that on television and was rudely told I was the only person who did not like their advertising.

Today on page two of The Royal Gazette there is a new CellOne advertisement with the headlines “Some people just don't understand sharing” — on the photograph there are two men in a bed with a woman — now what on earth is that to do with BlackBerry products or cell phones or sharing, sharing what? No, I do not understand sharing.

It is a vulgar advertisement and sends a bad message to all of Bermuda and particularly our young people. I know the tourists will wonder what type of merchant would publish such an advertisement. Do we not have enough problems in Bermuda at the moment?

I suggest anyone who deals with CellOne to find another carrier — what does this advertisement have to do with sharing?????
