DUBLIN - Ireland's national TV station was ordered to hold back an advertisement featuring disintegrating Zombies until after the watershed viewing time of 9pm when most children are asleep.

The Broadcasting Complaints Commission watchdog ruled the ad for an energy drink infringed advertising codes that a commercial should be "decent."

The ad features images of break-dancing Zombies whose limbs fall off and whose eyeballs pop out.

"If one did not understand the humour of the advertisement, or even recognize that it was supposed to be humorous, the tone could be menacing and scary," the BCC said.

Lucozade said the commercial was designed to be quirky and light-hearted, and had received a positive response.
