Deliveroo advert banned for 'misleading its customers'
It received over 300 complaints!
Have you seen the advert where a woman collects a bag of Deliveroo food from the door and shares it around the family? Well, after two months of being on air, it has been banned.
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) have said the advert is misleading to customers as it gives the impression customers "could order food from different restaurants to be delivered together".
This is the result of over 300 complaints since the advert first appeared on screens back in September. The worst part is, this isn't the first time they have banned a Deliveroo advert for being misleading this year.
In the advert, orders from Burger King, KFC, Wagamama, Pizza Express, and others were pulled out of one single bag. If you have ever ordered multiple meals from different places from Deliveroo, then you will know they do not necessarily arrive at the same time and certainly not in the same bag.
Yes, it is a picky thing to be banned for but at the end of the day, it is false advertising.
