Shane Warne’s latest TV ad for a hair-loss clinic has been pulled out after the logo on his T-shirt - 'No Hair, No Life' sparked the ire of cancer patients. The Anti-Cancer Council and former cancer patients complained about the ad, the Herald Sun revealed.



“I couldn’t bare the idea of someone just being told they were going to lose their hair and then being told that without hair they had no life,” News.com.au quoted complainant and former sufferer Kate Alexander as saying.

Advanced Hair Studio CEO Stephen Jeffery yesterday confirmed that the clinic had its agency remaster the clip, digitally blacking out the offending slogan.



The new ad went to air on Wednesday night.



Jeffery said the ad was not intended to offend those managing hair because of medical conditions, but said the clinic’s slogan, “No Hair, No Life”, would not be canned.
