Do companys really think about their advertising and which audience they’re aiming for?  With so many rubbish adverts now appearing on TV or posters, prehaps not.

Fit4less Long Eaton offers you the smarter and more affordable way to work out. Especially if your FAT. Seeing their recent poster has sparked anger with there VERY offensive poster.

Natalie Harvey, founder of Nottinghamshire charity Combat Bullying, said she was shocked when she noticed a billboard while driving along Tamworth Road, in Sawley, with son Hugo. The mum of two helps thousands of children every year and is a member of an all-parliamentary group set up to tackle bullying.

The poster, which advertises the Fit4Less gym in Long Eaton, pictures some aliens beaming up a person into their space ship. Text on the advert reads: “They’re coming…And when they arrive they’ll take the FAT ones first!” It then says “Save yourself!” with an arrow pointing to the gym’s website.

Do you find this advert offensive?
