More distracting than domestic violence...

ASA bans Gold and Goblins game advert for trivialising domestic violence


Link Here22nd November 2021

An in-app ad for the mobile app game Gold and Goblins, seen in the Hooked Inc: Fishing Games and Quizzland apps on 17 September 2021, included a video of a woman playing a game on her mobile phone, while behind her a man picked up a chair and drew it back over his head as if to strike the woman with it. The ad then showed the man looking at the phone over the woman's shoulder as she continued to play.

Two complainants, who considered the ad encouraged domestic violence, challenged whether it was offensive and socially irresponsible. Response

AppQuantum Publishing Ltd said they would immediately stop running the ad across all their platforms. They said they had intended the ad to be humorous in nature, and apologised for any offence it might have caused.

ASA Assessment: Complaints upheld

The ASA acknowledged AppQuantum's willingness to remove the ad.

The ad depicted a man about to assault a woman, and we considered that consumers would understand from the context of the setting that it was because her attention was focused on the game she was playing, rather than on the man.

We considered that such a reference used in an ad for a mobile app game trivialised and condoned the serious and sensitive subject of domestic violence. This was likely to cause serious and widespread offence, and we considered the ad had not been prepared in a socially responsible manner.

The ad must not appear again in its current form. We told AppQuantum Publishing Ltd not to trivialise or condone domestic violence in its advertising.

Promotional Material

Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 coming-of-age classic, THE OUTSIDERS THE COMPLETE NOVEL, based on S.E Hinton's classic novel, has been stunningly restored. This very special collector's edition includes both the original and complete Novel version in glorious 4K for the first time, overseen and approved by Coppola himself.

In 1966 Tulsa, teenagers come two ways. If you're a "Soc," you've got money, cars, a future. But if you're a "Greaser," you're an outsider with only your friends...and a dream that someday you'll finally belong. Francis Ford Coppola's powerful film THE OUTSIDERS: THE COMPLETE NOVEL captures how it feels to be caught between childhood's innocence and adulthood's disillusionment. The ensemble is a Who's Who of young talents of the past two decades: Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and Ralph Macchio. Movingly and in an intensely visual style, Coppola has made these street rats and their struggle heroic -- and unforgettable.

Extras:

Includes Original soundtrack CD, 64-page booklet, x 2 posters from artist Tony Stella, 5 artcards from James Hamilton photography, 'Stay Gold' pin badge. Booklet includes exclusive introduction from C Thomas Howell and a brand new interview with S.E Hinton by Lena Dunham.
