Banned Adam & Eve Commercial

So I guess this commercial got banned.

Me, I think it’s funny, but I don’t want to discuss why (or why it got banned) because it’ll give it away.

Just watch. Heh-heh.

    That’s hysterical. Though for the first 10 seconds or so I thought it was an Alanis Morissette music video.

    lol–I didn’t expect that, and that’s why it was so funny. :)

    Lol, quite the funny commercial.

    I’m not srprised of its bannage. I think it’s stupid, but I aldo don’t see the point in ranting about it because, at this point, I don’t care about little cultural fuckups like the banning of this commercial.

    To whoever decided this commercial was offensive, or the people who strike fear into networks who were considering buying this ad: Grow an ass, a spine, and a brain to put on top.

    I think the thing that some people were bitching about was the “gay stereotype”, which is the whole point of the joke.

    I don’t agree that it was a stereotype, I think it was more of an archtype . . . to me, a stereotype is a portrayal that only emphasizes the negative aspects of a character - here, I don’t find Adam negatively portrayed at all, in fact it’s a joyful one (made all the more humorous because, well, we all KNOW at least one guy exactly like that) and based in reality. If it wasn’t, if there were no gay men like this (like Jack on Will & Grace) perhaps they’d have a case that it’s a stereotype . . . but since there are men like this (and Jack) it’s more of an archtype on an existing reality.

    And that’s also why it’s funny. Heh.
