Now this ad for the U.K. version of Clue gets big points for sheer guts.

I didn’t expect a U.K. commercial for a boardgame to take such a blatant swipe at the NYPD and, until I saw what the ad was for, I suspected it was an Amnesty Internation-type PSA.  Cluedo (or just Clue to we Americans) wouldn’t exactly be high on my list for semi-subversive advertising, so this spot makes for one truly effective advert.  Wow, what bravado.  Well done.
