Jamster Ads Restricted To Post 9PM


Jamster has lost an attempt to prevent UK advertising watchdong, the Advertising Standards Authority, from “publishing a scathing adjudication relating to TV advertising for its Crazy Frog, Sweetie the Chick and Nessie the Dragon ringtones”. There were 298 complaints about the ads for targeting children, and the ASA adjudication “ordered that a post-9pm restriction now applies to all Jamster advertising in the future. Of particular concern were complainants reporting that children had run up large phone bills as a result of the ads”.
Looks like Jamsters attempts to appear to clean up its act came a bit too late…
