Cow and Gate Baby Advert

Cow & Gate Babies Advert

Maybe I just have a heart of stone but  this advert with laughing gurgling, freaky, cackling babies just makes me cringe. It consists of a succession of babies laughing with a jarring pinging sound. I get the feeling they are trying to condition me like you might with a dog with a clicker during obedience training.

Oh, and the last fat faced, gurgling baby sounds like my grandfather coughing up phlegm from smoking too many Woodbines. When I see this advert now, I just instinctively grab my remote control and press the mute button as it is so painful. It is a terrible advert. Please stop it.

  • The fact that it doesn’t say ‘and’ for the final point makes me angry.

  • Yes she should have said and for the final point but these were bullet points which are fine written down without the and, but not when read aloud.

  • As a scientist, this kind of marketing annoys the hell out of me! Of course a baby would have to drink an ocean of milk to get a day’s worth of iron, YOU GET YOUR IRON FROM SOLID FOOD, NOT MILK!

    Thats like advertising expensive bottled water to children, on the basis that they get far “more” water out of it than they do from toast…

  • I think the final baby looks like he should be in the Beano.
