Complaint to Advertisin Council of Canada

I have submitted a complaint to the Advertising Standards Canada regarding the latest Gateway System ad Shaw is currently running promoting the Gateway System. It shows two floating robots, one small and one large, selecting 6 programs for a gateway user. The larger robot removes a 'device' from his chest, selecting a button, and stopping the smaller robot mid sentence.

 

The 'device' removed for the larger robots chest appears to be a tablet device or looks like a tablet device and we Gateway owners all know Gateway cannot be controlled by a tablet nor smartphone device. This ad gives the impression it can. The larger robot should be holding the supplied Gateway remote.
