This is the first advertisement banned from television in the United Kingdom by the Orwellian "Advertising Standards Authority" for portraying "gender-stereotypical activities."
The ad from Volkswagen shows men doing male things and a woman raising a baby.
From The Guardian:
The ad for Volkswagen's electric eGolf vehicle showed a series of scenes including a man and a woman in a tent on a sheer cliff face, two male astronauts, a male para-athlete and a woman sitting on a bench next to a pram. Text stated: "When we learn to adapt we can achieve anything."Portraying healthy normalcy in TV adverts is now explicitly forbidden.
