Too bad GM was pressured to take this commercial off the air. If you didn't get to see it, or if you just want to save it to your computer, here it is. http://vette-net.com/movies/ABoysDream-High.mov
I just learned about it today, reading an issue of MT.
There has been NO research to date that proves what kind of long term influence (if any) TV has on anyone, including children.
There are so many flaws with such a poorly constructed argument supporting the removal of the commercial. If they're so concerned with influence, then why don't they censor the news, like that NBA brawl? Compared to this commercial, the brawl is definitely rated "R", yet they can't show that enough, even during commercials for upcoming news.
There are so many more things those idiots should be doing with their time, like finding PRODUCTIVE jobs. If the FCC doesn't care, why should anyone else?
Oh, and as a side note, Smokey and the Bandit and the Dukes of Hazzard were my favorite two shows when I was between 6 and 8 years of age. I used to drive my 1/32 general lee all over and off ramps. I even refused to watch sesame street or any of that crap. I'm 22 now, and I think I grew up just fine, not having any problems with the law. So much for that TV influence.
