I couldn't find the UK version online, but this one's the same, more or less: http://www.facetenvideo.com/30002-be...ade-tv-ad.html

"Fair for the cows"? Urgh. I get that their farming practices are better than most, but grr.

Irritates me. But not half as much as the cow being allowed to run on a beach for a day in the muller ads!
