"Naturist Uncle" Featured in TV Commercial
Camberwick Green? We think it's pink!
Thursday, November 2, 2006
Chiefs at Quaker Oats did a double take after someone spotted a naked character apparently exhibiting a little more Plasticine than is decent.
The popular TV ad, which has made viewers giggle and drawn attention on video-sharing website YouTube, features the 1960s Camberwick Green character and his naturist uncle, Guber.
As the pair make microwave porridge Oatso Simple in Windy's Mill, uncle Guber is naked, except for a hat and yellow scarf.
'Morning Windy,' says a voiceover, 'you've got a visitor, your Uncle Guber from Norway. Oh dear! He's in the nib, Windy. Oh, he's a naturist, prefers to keep things natural does he?'
Uncle Guber's private parts are out of sight at this point.
But, as he carries his bowl of porridge away, keen-eyed viewers get a view of what appears to be his Plasticine pride and joy.
Gina Penny, 27, from Chelmsford, said: 'I couldn't believe my eyes. I couldn't stop giggling.
'It's quick, but there is definitely an extra piece of Plasticine in his nether regions.'
The Advertising Standards Authority said it had received three complaints about the ad, but none mentioned flashing.
One objected to the character dropping boiling cereal on his genitals.
Quaker said 'We are just keeping it natural.'
