Play this same ad in 6 months time, then I'll 100% agree with you, it would just be plain unfunny and offensive.
At that point I'll 100% agree with you also that it should be in that list of other really offensive suggestions you posted earlier.
In the mean time, I've very sorry you feel offended by the ad. I think you'll be in a very very small minority, and I do accept that some people are simply going to find it offensive no mater what anyone (including myself) says.
