Eh, I found the commercial to be stupid anyway, so I don't really care if it's gone or not.

Why would ripping your chest hair out make you manly?

There were alternate endings. Check YouTube.

I thought it was the best commercial of all of them. I couldn't stop laughing.

This is so ridiculous. This country is getting out of control with being PC and people being offended. Get over it

Shocker. ;-7

Gay and lesbian association wants it removed because the two guys freak out after kissing. Lots of straight people wanted it removed because they don't want to see two guys kiss.

Not too surprised this commercial was short lived. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

But muuuum....

That commercial is not funny...and I don't mean that in a PC way. It simply isn't all that funny.

2 guys kissing might not be a bad idea for girls to watch, just not 2 that's not attractive at all.

It's so gay to pull the ad.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Right but thats your opinion and others thought it was funny. I really have a problem with people being censored. I am very big into freedom of speech, rights etc. If a company wants to go with the ad why should we make them stop b/c some people feel offended?
