Over the weekend, Sportsbet launched an ad campaign introducing our brand new Android app, featuring former Olympic sprinter, Ben Johnson.

We thought it was pretty funny – but sections of the media lost their absolute minds.

Below is a snippet of the calm, measured reporting of the ad.

As you can see, the outrage is so severe you could roast a marshmallow on it.

There was just one problem with all of this public outrage though. The public didn’t seem to be outraged at all. In fact, people kinda liked it.

Finally, who could forget all of these guys? Someone should really check if they’re all ok.
