Dubious ads of the past #1

I was watching the always excellent Charlie Brooker on BBC4 last night (behold the cultured nature of my televisual habits) and amongst his usual vitriolic commentary and dissection of objectionable advertising there was one spot from the past that left even him lost for words, momentarily at least, mouth open with shock.

One of the most overtly racist ads ever aired in the UK? Possibly. Would he be a fan? Probably.

Is this really what we were like?

UK readers can watch the entire episode of Screenwipe until the second of December here on the iplayer.
