This is Sofa King Lame.
After using the line for nine (9) fucking years, Northampton's Sofa King has been reprimanded by the ASA, because, "[the ad] could be interpreted as a derivative of the swear word 'fuck', which consumer research had found to be a word so likely to offend that it should not be used in ads at all, even when it was relevant to the name of a product..."
