    This relatively clever and safe from lawsuit advert from Greenpeace was pulled from air here in Australia on Channel 9 before it even got a chance to run.

    It is about raising awareness to Coca-Cola successfully reversing a 10 cent per bottle refund initiative that helps stop bottle tops and rings from strangling and starving birds to death slowly as well as the obvious pollution of plastic bottles ending up at sea, etc... An initiative we have had in my state, South Australia, for over 30 years now.

    Greenpeace says about the advert on their YouTube Channel:
    I guess when you are in the commercial TV game you have to look after your biggest advertisers... :mad:
