    Seems the UK authorities have decided the ad is not suitable for TV there. Grow up already. Anyway, I posted the link so all our Brit posters can see it here instead.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    ^^ Why's that?
    Because it's fun and people shouldn't be so uptight.

    That's the ironic thing about the banning - it just makes more Brits want to see it. And that girl who says 'bloody hell' in the ad is going over to the UK to try to 'bargain' with the censors to lift the ban... mmmph, doesn't reek of publicity to me.

    Not only the actress, also the bloody federal tourism minister and entourage. Their business class tix no doubt funded by taxpayers. But you are right, there is no such thing as bad publicity.

    Now the Canadians are at it! The advert has been banned there too, apparently because there is a scene showing a person buying a beer. Sheesh.

    Say what? We drink beer like mad here. Or at least some do. Beer commercials are common on TV.

    I heard it was actually because of the word 'hell' and will still be shown, but later when the kiddies are asleep. I'm not offended. It's rather an attractive ad, but one that I would probably never heard of if not for the banning.

    It is on in Britain. It has been on a few times this week. Everyone says bloody all the bloody time here in Britain so it's hardly shocking.

    I don't class 'bloody' as a swear word. Although my mum had other ideas when she whacked me round the head when I said it when aged 9.
