Who are these pricks going around killing bumblebees? How will our crops get pollinated? I was watching something on the news tonight about how the bee population has declined 30 percent in the US an Europe. Some are predicting an ecological disaster. Discuss. Or not.

Seriously, bumblebees have to be pretty far down the scale of pests Raid is used on. The umpire signals wide on this one. BTW congrats Australia on winning the world cup...Rog, hang the dj etc if I remember correctly.

I don't like to bee too critical in this case cause I like this ad, but who would be buying a product that advertises killing bumbebees?

For hire and desire ... http://www.prettymorning.co.uk

Yeah, I totally agree NFA. Since when were bees a ‘pest’ that needed to be eradicated? Not thought through.

Plus, this has been done.

As for the cricket, I didn’t even know there was a game on, but I’m sure Rog will be happy.

Yeah right enough, wasps, bluebottles, ants and cockroaches are far more deserving of a Raid ass wooping than bummblebees. Actually it probably won't kill cockroaches cos nothing can, nothing except fire.

It's only an ad.

Shame on Luís Silva Dias, Duarte Pinheiro de Melo, José Carlos Silva, Vasco Condessa
This same idea won last year in El ojo de Iberoamerica, an Iberoamerican Festival.
It was from a Colombian students. The only difference is that the seong was "La Cucaracha" "The Cockroach"
It was Gold, and jurys from all countries, including Portugal, agreed it was the best.
Im looking for the link.
Thumbs Down!

You're right. There´s a one year gap between theese two ideas. The "bumblebee" ad was created and aproved by SCJ one year earlier, in May 2005.
