After years of adverts tempting children to "Join The Professionals", the ASA is dismayed to find videos circulating on the Interweb, showing a fat b*stard who was sacked from every job he ever had for unprofessional behaviour, wearing an army uniform on manoeuvres and making out he could fly a fighter jet.
"It's a disgrace that the advertising community promoted the notion that the military only have professionals, when clearly the military will accept any oiks", said chairman Fred Scoggins, ASA and bar.
The military has responded saying "An unfortunate admin error occurred after an assistant who it appears had met him at Oxford and thought there was a chance of getting her own back if she could fast track his application and turn him into cannon fodder. The admin error occurred when her supervisor never checked beyond seeing that the fat bastard had attended Eton, and imagined he must be quality material.
