No One’s offensive movie is deemed a bogey flick

Have you ever sat on a bus and watched the person across from you picking their nose indulgently for minutes on end? It’s an unsavoury reality, but at least the Advertising Standards Authority has ensured there’ll be no more of that on film.

The ASA is banning an in-bus movie by No One that’s part of a campaign to raise awareness about Oxfam’s Fair Trade petition. Apparently, nose- picking David Law (pictured), the group’s design director, has attracted more attention than the appeal to relieve poverty in developing world countries.

Because of an overwhelming number of complaints, the ASA has pulled his reel. Law won’t be picking up the audience award at the Baftas then.
