A speech bubble from Lambert's mouth stated "Let's have a picnic, Butler"; a speech bubble from Butler's mouth stated "I'll bring twenty friends, Sir". The complainant objected that the poster implied: 1. cigarettes were friends; and 2. cigarettes would attract friends, suggesting that smoking increased popularity.Complaint upheld
The advertisers said the advertisement was one of a series, that had run for many years, featuring dialogue between the two fictional characters, Lambert and Butler. They argued that the advertisement showed Lambert as having no friends other than his elderly butler and rather than suggesting social success it depicted the opposite: the two characters were about to have a picnic on their own.
