This article about an ad that was shown on Australian commerical TV that encouraged binge drinking for teenagers. It also included the mixed sport and binge drinking together, which many young people are involed in.

It is advertising like this and the portrayal of alcohol consumption in this manner that is most dangerous to the generations that are coming through. The advertisements that were mention in the article were said to portray young people drinking or gathering up large quantities of alcohol, the promotion of excessive drinking and alcohol-fuelled parties. Also the ads were shown in the afternoon with an audience of all ages.


If ads and the depiction of alcohol in this manner can be restricted to the audience that it directly affects, and can be shown in a responsible manner, without the added connotations and implications that are normally associated with alcohol, i believe it will be invaluable to society in order to halt the irresponsible and reckless drinking habits which have been developed in recent years.
