Basically the ASA received 17 complaints that the advert suggested application downloads were near instantaneous - perhaps the advert should have been 5 minutes long to demonstrate the total time it would take to download the applications, or maybe some people are far too pedantic and need to get a life...

Your 17-fingered hand line is making me think of Deliverance - now you'd be a whizz on the banjo with 17-fingers, but you'd have real difficulty working an iPhone with that many fingers, they'd keep getting in the way - maybe that's why they complained, they're simply jealous of the city folk who can work a phone properly.

Or maybe I've just been working too hard today and need to go home...
