...what are your thoughts on it?


I was actually pleasantly surprised that they really didn't force any sort of viewpoints on the viewers.

It was much less blatant than I expected it to be, but I also thought it was really stupid, with that part where he supposedly tackles his mother. I guess abortion is condemned, but make-believe violence toward your mother is not? ;O)

At the end of the ad, my friend goes "was that a pro-life ad or a pro-domestic violence ad?" I thought it was weird, too.


But as for what was actually said, I was pleasantly surprised. If you didn't know what the ad was about, I doubt you would have known what it was about.

Well... I'm not terribly pleased with anything that directs people to the Focus on the Family organization. But :)

By that logic, I guess that Mars is guilty of promoting elder abuse since they ran an ad where Betty White is tackled by a much younger man.

Just remembering her style of humor. Somehow I don't think that Betty White felt abused at all being thrown on the ground by a young, attractive, physically fit, sweaty, hot...you get my meaning. She may have actually asked for a few more takes than were necessary.

Sure, you could say that if you want. I relayed my friend's joke. But now that I think about it, there were lots of ads with hitting, slapping, tackling, and so on. That was probably the theme of both the game and the commercials, yeah?

Are you sure that she was joking?

It appears that at least the president of NOW is saying pretty much the same thing but not as a joke.

~~~NOW president Terry O'Neill said it glorified violence against women. "I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it," she said. "That's what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don't find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself."~~~

<<<"I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it," she said. "That's what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don't find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself."~~~>>>

TerryO'Neill is the one who should be ashamed of herself,no true survivor of domestic violence would think this ad promoted anything close to DV. If this is the worst Miss O'Neill has ever experienced in a DV situation she is indeed both lucky and woefully lacking. I'm frankly offended she even refers to herself as a DV survivor.

I am a DV survivor What i have seen in my life in that regard far exceeds what anyone could possibly handle in life let alone a commercial.Terry O'Neill is a liar and yes i said it,she is a liar in no way is that a depiction or even a hint of DV. The only thing the President of NOW can identify herself as with any accuracy at all is a very poor actress,she was never a victim but she fancies herself as one which is my problem with women's organizations and indeed feminists in general.

Did I read that right? Feminists in general see themselves as victims?
