Agency apologies for controversial advert04/05/2012 - 19:01:31
The agency behind a controversial TV advert in Argentina has apologised for getting involved with the project.
It shows a member of Argentina's Olympic team training on a British war memorial in the Falklands.
Young and Rubicam says it's written to the Argentinian government, asking for the ad to be removed.
Britain's Defence Secretary Philip Hammond is condemning the commercial:
"Its tasteless, its provocative, and very insulting to the many British soldiers, and sailors and airmen who gave their lives protecting the Falkland islands".
