why was it banned?
I am surprised that in two pages of replies that no one hit on the act of banning an ad in Australia. I am angry with myself that I did not immediately do a search to find out the possible reasons behind the ban...
There is of course the previously mentioned thought that this ad is not banned at all.
THIS LINK is to NAPCAN, the organisation that made the ad.
Like the woman in the previous link I posted, you could send them an email to ask.
I'd do it myself, but nobody ever believes or pays attention to anything I say.
Respect for others died shortly after MTV went on the air. We now live in a "Culture of Disrespect". It will not change anytime soon, if ever.

I came across this Australian advertisement today that was banned from being shown on TV…

The ad is NOT saying that children mimic adult behavior. The ad is ridiculing adult behavior and trying to send the message to adults that we should spend every minute of our lives as if we were the children
I have no idea where you got adults "should spend every minute of our lives as if we were the children" out of that commercial??? Do you mean see the world through their eyes? Reminds me of the old saying "Monkey see, Monkey do". If a child grows up in an abusive home, as was depicted in the commercial, how would that affect the childs personality later in life? What you find by some small chance is that the child will possibly grow up being the exact same way, abusive. Another was the road rage depiction. A child sees that and figures it's ok to act that way because his/her parents do it.
