If you thought Vallance and Whitty's warm-up act for the latest round of national restrictions was a bit over the top, you need to watch the Scottish government's latest TV ad. The hard-hitting ad features a young lady passing on the virus to her grandfather, except the virus is represented by a hideous green slime! Watch below.
The advert has divided opinion with some praising its hard-hitting approach, while others accused it of inappropriate scaremongering. Some complained of the impact it might have on young children, while another joked: "This just looks like ten minutes after colouring with the kids".
One thing is for certain, if the UK government had put this out the media would have gone into meltdown and there would be calls for resignations!
