A CUSTOMER has shared a hilarious image of a children’s ride – placed directly in front of an advert for Viagra.

The unfortunate combination was spotted outside a Sainsbury’s branch in Ipswich, Suffolk yesterday (tue).

Stuart Harris stopped in his tracks when he spotted the mechanical ride outside, featuring children’s TV show characters Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom.

The ride shows Ben and Holly riding Gaston the Ladybird and allows an extra seat for a small child to sit.

But unfortunately it was placed in front of a billboard for Viagra Connect which is currently being stocked at Lloyds Pharmacy – located within the Sainsbury’s branch.

Stuart decided to take a snap of the unlikely pairing before posting it to the Facebook pages for both Sainsbury’s and Lloyds Pharmacy.

The father-of-one wrote: “Hi Sainsbury’s and Lloyds Pharmacy, just wanted to suggest looking at where you do your advertising especially around kids’ rides.

He joked: “Can I suggest looking at more appropriate ads like something from Durex here instead?”

Referring to character Ben’s musical instrument, which he can be seen holding on the ride, Kate O’Neill wrote underneath: “Highly inappropriate. Ben already has a horn.”

And Ross Hall said: “What’s wrong with advertising blood pressure medication?”

Speaking today (wed), Stuart, owner at digital projection company Motion Mapping, said: “I was going into Sainsbury’s to get my lunch on a busy day working on a projection project.

“I thought it was hilarious. I mentioned it to the staff and they all found it funny and we had a joke about it.

“They said they would let the manager know, not sure what happened after that.

“We were laughing about other options that could have been there.

“My suggestion was Durex to prevent children instead of a product that actively encourages practising making children…”
