Okay, banned in America could mean anything from Smurfs to Maplethorpe, but this is about commercials. In truth, I don’t really know if these commercials were actually “banned” in any country, but they claim to be, so that’s what we’re running with.
The first may or may not have been intended for English speaking venues, but it certainly illustrates a point that I’ve often wanted to make to parents in public places.
This next is along a similar theme, but takes a very different tact. While the first commercial makes you want to pull your own hair out as you punch the neglectful dad in the face ’till he splatters, this one makes you laugh and feel pretty good. I wish I were this smooth.
The last is a Heineken commercial, and proves conclusively that beer makes men very, very stupid.
