Virgin Media Ad campaign featuring Usain Bolt banned

Virgin Media Ad campaign featuring Usain Bolt banned
Complaints by British Telecoms (BT), and Sky media, has resulted in a ban on Virgin Media's advertisement featuring sprint superstar Usain Bolt. According to the Guardian, this was the second Virgin Media ad featuring Bolt to be banned, after ruling in July 2012 that the cable firm could not deliver on its advertised high-speed broadband service. The UK regulator ASA, stated that Virgin Media did not provide enough information on its website to support claims about its high-speed broadband. The ad which is estimated to have cost millions of pounds, sees the global track star taking on the roles of a 'baby’, a boy, and what is being described as 'mischievous' Mrs. Bolt whose favorite track and field athlete is Britain's Mo Farah as they use Virgin Media's broadband service to complete their tasks.
