A British print advertisement for the PlayStation Move controller is banned in the United Kingdom, after a whopping eight people issued formal complaints.
Give the UK some Kevin Butler Adverts and we'll be fine :)
Yea Kevin Butler is very talented and hie ads are more interesting than this on anyways. I <3 to watch his ads and I dont even like ps3!
So those eight 360 fanboys are pleased.
8 people in a country with 60 million. Imagine if democracy worked like that.
It's a stupid advert to print, But it certainly shouldn't be BANNED. I probably wouldn't even notice it flicking through a mag it's so inoffensive.
this is pathetic
THAT'S PATHETIC... SERIOUSLY
Whos sad enough to even want to complain about something like this?
lol a wopping 8 people hahahaha
I don't know what's more sad A) That it got banned over 8 complaints or B) That the poster looks as if it was made by one of the developers children during arts and crafts time at bible school. Seriously, that is one of the worst ads I've ever seen. It needed to be banned on principle.
The UK needs to man the f**k up. I live in England an everyone is just a bunch of whining pussies that get offended by ANYTHING. Seriously, if someone wears, like, a white hat on TV it will get complaints for being racist. Who gives a s**t if you don't like something. Just ignore it. Why the f**k would you care about this ad. Violence is hilarious and great entertainment for all ages, and, if anything, should be PROMOTED in society, not taken out. I vote we start beating up innocent people on the streets, including every scrawny little homo that complained about this ad.
Wow, Brits wouldn't 5 minutes watching American television commercials.
I think you mean 8 Brits wouldn't last 5 minutes =D
While it may seem strange for the ad to be pulled on the back of eight complaints, it's WORTH NOTING that these decisions ARE NOT made on the BASIS OF NUMBERS. EVEN ONE complaint is enough to bring the matter to the attention of the ASA, who can then — under review — make their own decision on the suitability of the advertisement.
He was beating a 360 fanboy.
Who reports shit, honestly I once got run up by cops, they said someone reported myself and a friend were smoking something out of a pipe earlier over by the field (werent). It was there and now that I had to stop and think... Who the fuck actually goes and reports stupid shit like that..
Even the British government is full of Xbots.
Well, to be frank, it's not hard to see why this ad where banned: - It has a white dude smiling while beating up a black dude. If it had been 2 white people, the ad would not have gotten the same attention. Dosn't matter if you're racist or not, it draws the attention more. Perhaps Sony did speculate in the extra draw to attention this gets, perhaps they didn't.. We'll never know. Censorship is a easy way not to have to fight racism. :-/
