Shell and BP used to put out adverts in the UK with lots of nice green countryside and people enjoying the sunshine. I'm sure a case could be made for a breech of advertising standards.

Really? Because the background to run of the mill "please use our fuels instead of the other guys" advertising was idyllic?

What law might that break? Seems like you don't see your dishwashing soap commercials use a ghetto with winos and drug users hanging out on the corners, because no one uses non-idyllic backgrounds to their sales pitch.
