    Snickers

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.
