redmond_herring (839209) writes "Over on Canada.com there is an article about DQ's Kit Kat Blizzard ice cream that is causing quite a stir up north.
"Opponents of a controversial Dairy Queen commercial are angry they're seeing it on television, a week after it was supposed to be pulled... The advertisement for Kit Kat Blizzard ice cream treats depicts a youth taunting his little brother while the younger boy hangs by his underwear from a door hook."
The ad is controversial because of the 1998 death of a 10 year old, found hanging from a coat hook.
Is this simply a storm in a teacup, or a legitimate complaint?"
