Swearing Radio Ad

Hi Spotify

 

First of all I love spotify and have been using the service for over 2 years, but this is the first time I am not happy with the advert you just played just before 16.00pm.

The advert for Army of the Pharaohs by The Orchard is full of swearing, heavy swear words. This is inappropriate for an advert.

As I dont want to be hearing those words and fortunate I had no children around. As I do not want my family to hear those kinds of words.

I know its difficult to recurit advertises to advertise but there should be standards to be followed just like there is on TV and Radio.

 

Will you stop this from happening again in the future, as it would be shame to leave spotify because profanity of radio ads.

Hi,

 

I agree that explicit ads can be very awkward. Please add your kudos and comments to this idea: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Spotify-Ads-Filters/idi-p/11675, which is the most effective way to give your feedback to Spotify staff.

In complete agreement this ad should not be played. It made me laugh signing up to be on this community one of the Spotify terms to joining is if you don't put up posts that are

  1. offensive, abusive, defamatory, pornographic, threatening, obscene;

Come on no ads should have such bad language in them I am sure there is probably a ruling somewhere maybe with the ASA.

Listening to beautfiul classical music when all of the sudden 'SOB' is being yelled at me in an ad? NO THANK YOU! Spotify, if you put up 'explicit' warnings on songs, then WHY in the WORLD are you playing ads with swears?!

You're lucky I had earphones in, otherwise my whole family including young siblings would have been bombarded as well!

Get it together... please. I love spotify.

Just to add to this thread (i guess instead of creating a new one).. ALL the danish commercials have swear words in them. It makes me sad to hear. Do you have any guidelines towards this or do you want me to switch to another service?
(i sadly dnt have money to use any premium service)

To add to this thread: I was listening to a my little pony playlist with my kids when an ad for hip hop music came on that started with a swear word. Totally inappropriate .

There are too many music/listening choices out there to stick with Spotify since profanity is part of Spotfiy's advertisements.    Since Spotify allows profanity, I will be listening around to find new source for music.
