[Animation]

Kev appears on screen. He's sporting a wicked comb-over and rocking the sandals and socks with shorts look. He's standing outside his club that features a 'open' and 'bar' neon signs on the wall.

[Narrator]

This is Kev. He manages this club and considers himself a bit of an ad man.

[Animation]

A new sign appears in a smoke cloud. It reads 'Pokies. Everyone's a winner, baby!'

[Kev]

This one's sure to pull the crowds.

[Narrator]

Ah, that's false and misleading and could be seen as encouraging the misuse of pokies.

[Animation]

Kev's face drops. A new sign appears on the wall. It reads 'Invest in pokies. Safer than houses.'

[Kev]

How could you miss this one?

[Narrator]

Ah, that's not a reasonable statement.

[Animation]

Another sign appears, reading 'Beer. Nudes. Gambling. You can't lose!'

[Narrator]

Nope! That's not true.

[Animation]

Kev looks downcast.

[Kev]

Alright, here it is.

[Animation]

The last new sign appears on the wall. It reads '$50 000 in wins paid this week! $$$'.

[Narrator]

Sorry Kev, in Queensland venues can only advertise externally if they comply with section 229 of the Gaming Machine Act 1991, and Practice 6 of the responsible gambling code of practice.

[Animation]

Kev puts up a compliant sign. It reads 'Food. Live bands. Keno.'
