Now this is a bit of a cock-up isn’t it! I’ve just been reading about the apology that Channel 5 has given to a funeral parlour over the faux par that was made.
It seems that an advert for the series The Walking Dead was placed on a billboard of the side of a funeral parlour, of all the places to put the advert!
The billboard advert in Consett, County Durham has since been removed from the billboard from the outside wall of the Co-operative Funeral care.
Just goes to show that sometimes advertisers really don’t think the location through as much as they really should
