The main advertisers on the telly now seem are supermarkets, insurance companies and comparison sites, ambulance-chasing, pettifogging personal injury claims lawyers, online bingos, a well-known fast food outlet, and car manufacturers. Though when there is a sporting event on, the bookies take over the spots.
Among the many insurance companies that repeatedly appear on the box, there is one that is called Green Flag (www.greenflag.com). Its adverts feature computer-generated ants in a militaristic march, with the chief ant reviewing it, as seen in the example linked below.
I just have to wonder: is this company related in any way to Colonel Gaddafi, given the flag of the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya is a green flag without any other details? Naturally I don’t think so, but as marketing goes, this does make an unintended and unwanted association with a brutal regime.
