Get some nutz. I found this at the other place and thought it worthy of Man Laws.

Gotta love Mr. T, course he ain't Chuck! :smiley36:

This ad caused an outcry from the Gay community and was eventually pulled.

Mr T Snickers ad pulled for being offensive to gay people | Media | guardian.co.uk (http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2008/jul/28/advertising1)

Interestingly it was the second such ad for Snickers that was pulled.

Not really. Much was hype by the media looking for a non story. Many blogs from the UK, the ad never aired in the US btw, thought the ad was ok.

Personally, I think its brilliant! Had nothing to do with being homosexual, had everything to do about bashing a Olympic Sport that shouldn't be.....sorta like volley ball. :smiley36:

It'd make my day to watch you try to play serious volleyball ... coupla good kill shots between the eyes would have you flat on your back and get your attention.

I honestly cannot see AT ALL how that could be offensive to someone who is homosexual.

The only thing I can think of is if they're playing to their own stereotypes of "sissyness" perhaps? Thats all I can think of.

On that other hand, its hilarious! I personally think of it as YouTube advertising... they know that will never go to the TV, so put it online... TONS of people will watch it and begin to crave a Snickers, kind of like I'm doing now. :D
