LG Poland under fire for releasing "pervert" video to promote Dual Screen

LG Poland under fire for releasing

You would think that in this day and age, brands have to be careful with the material that they put out and make sure they don’t cross any lines. We’ve seen people call out brands for racist, sexist, and offensive ads that they’ve put out over the years. We sometimes wonder how they even got through the approval process in the first place. It’s the turn of LG Poland now as a video released on TikTok for their Dual Screen devices seems to make fun of a on old man using the feature for perverted purposes.

But even if the video has been taken down from their official TikTok, the Internet never forgets of course. Twitter user Ruben Chicharro posted it to bring attention to how this could have been approved by LG Poland given its content. He identified a certain Youtuber @sawardega as the user that created the video for the company. It’s not clear if he was commissioned to do so or if he did it without permission, but the fact that it was posted on official channels is already questionable.

LG quickly responded to this issue so let’s see if the Internet will forgive them for this faux pas. This is another lesson for brands to be more careful with the content creators they work with and the kind of content that they’ll put out there for your brand.
