Santa Clarita Diet Ads Pulled Out By Netflix After Complaints
Netflix often has good shows. However, it can have negative effects as well if its ads don't go too well. This has been the case with Netflix's new show. The "Santa Clarita Diet" ads were pulled by Netflix after complaints.
"Santa Clarita Diet" is a new horror comedy show from Netflix starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. Ads for new shows are common, but the new Netflix show has drawn attention because of some of its ads. One of the ads shows a finger that has been cut up. In the show, the character of Drew Barrymore has become a zombie with a taste anything human.
The show has received good reviews, although there are graphic scenes as well. The show though has had complaints from people in Germany because of its ads there. The dismembered finger ad has been shown Postdamer Platz.
Many complaints have been filed in Germany's advertising regulator, the Deutscher Werberat. Other areas have ads about the show as well. In Los Angeles, an ad has French fries served with fingers in it. Another ad features a hamburger where instead of a patty, a bloody heart is in it, according to Variety. However, there have been no complaints about the ads displayed in other areas.
The show takes on Sheila Hammond, played by Drew Barrymore, who becomes a zombie. The show makes her zombie transformation and actions in a dark comic way, as Digital Spy reports. The show itself so far has received positive reviews. Its ads however, were deemed offensive in some places such as Germany.
Netflix has willingly taken down the offending ads after the complaints were filed. The German ads regulator cannot take the ads down. It could only advise the advertisers to remove the ads. The German ads controversy won't likely affect "Santa Clarita Diet" anytime soon.
Ads can be a good way to promote a show, though they can be a source of controversy as well. The "Santa Clarita Diet" ads were pulled by Netflix after complaints. E-cigarette use has been up for smokers, as a study has found.
