Hotline: BT cleared by the ASA after complaints

BT has been cleared by the Advertising Standards Authority after complaints about TV spots featuring a small girl throwing a tantrum and a man confronting gremlins intent on sabotaging his computer.

The former, the latest in the series featuring the actor Kris Marshall and his adopted family, provoked complaints that the ad encouraged or condoned parents letting their children use the internet unsupervised. The other drew protests about the spot being shown when small children might be watching.
