ABSTRACT
The article announces that an advertisement for fried chicken has been panned after complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority. It adds that Kentucky Fried Chicken's (KFC) advertisement depicting a teddy bear at the end of a rope being pulled into a tree house was deemed to be unsuitable for young children. The Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland (ASAI) found that it could lead to potentially dangerous copycat activities among children.
