Pervy Nutri-Grain ad puts its pants back on

Some British TV viewers have objected to this Kellogg's Nutri-Grain ad from Leo Burnett—in particular, the part when the doctor (who’s actually a Nutri-Grain baker) orders the patient to take his trousers off and then brandishes a giant red oven mitt. The industry watchdog is allowing the ad to stay on the air (minus the trousers line) after ruling that the doctor/baker is clearly “a surreal, eccentric figure” and not “a powerful or authoritative figure.” Whatever the case, hopefully Nutri-Grain washes its oven mitts regularly.
