Advertisement featuring zombies banned in Norway

  • Share

Featuring a hoard or rampaging zombies on the loose, the advertisement for Scandinavian sporting goods chain XXL caused uproar when it aired on Norwegian television over the weekend.

The commercial shows zombies chasing innocent people through a seemingly idyllic suburb.

Displaying their true Viking roots, the neighbors are soon fighting back, employing golf clubs, hockey pucks and footballs as weapons.

However, angry comments on XXL’s Facebook page accused the company of being “stupid and provocative”, leading XXL to pull the commercial from prime time TV.

Are Norwegians being too sensitive or is this commercial a bit too much?

See the commercial below and you be the judge!
