Advert for a Quooker boiling-water tap featuring a child in pyjamas using it was plainly the choice of a deranged marketing executive
Priced at between £1,150 and £1,600 depending on specification, a Quooker boiling-water tap with a flexible pull-out hose is anything but cheap but an advert for it, also, is anything but appropriate.
Though promoted as “extremely safe,” the marketing executive who came up with the advert for the product truly must have been on acid. It features a child in pyjamas perilously perched on something that allows him to reach the Quooker Flex. He is pictured squirting the hose into six glasses already filled with some kind of no doubt unhealthy sugary drink.
Whatever next? A return to child labour?
As a pensioner I cannot believe anyone would waste £1600 on a hot water tap. A kettle can be bought for £15 in my local Argos.
The parents of that child must be very pushy and desperate to have made it participate in such a stupid advert.
That’s really scary. Its OK saying that it is a safety feature, but all safety features have the potential to not work at some time!
I would buy one.
The buffoon who came up with this advert should be sent to Alan Sugar!
