A TV commercial featuring Hollywood actor Bruce Willis has been banned in Britain by an advertising watchdog. The Die Hard star filmed a campaign for Sky's broadband Internet service in which he is seen parading around the company's offices in nothing but a bath robe, but the ad has now been forced off-air. Officials at the U.K.'s Advertising Standards Authority have ruled the exact nature of the deal on offer was not made clear, branding the commercial misleading. The news is the latest blow for the actor, who hit headlines this month (Aug13) when Sylvester Stallone cut him from the cast of The Expendables 3 and branded him "greedy and lazy" for reportedly demanding a $4 million (£2.7 million) salary for just four days of work.
