How long does it take to load?! I've been waiting for like 5 minutes! I know thats not much but I'm bored and want instant gratification. :P

I got bored with waiting so I googled it and found it on this site

It's ok. Not bad. But I wouldn't have banned it. Thats dumb :P

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

I can see why that would get banned in America... They would get sued that "My child saw the commercial and thought it was okay to shoot people and and and..." I hate Americans.

The commercial seems a little stupid over-all to me. It's not that great. But, historically, Microsoft sucks at commercials, so I could see how it's their best. Freakin' Microsuck...

I can see why this is banned...

"It wasn't our fault we didn't lock our gun up, and that we bought our 14 and 10 year old sons an 18 game, and never supervised them because we were too buzy drooling at the TV... it's Grand Theft Auto that's to blame!"

People these days have hit the bottom of the gene pool, and asked for a spade...

The scary thing about that shirt is that it's bound to happen, if it hasn't already... anyone seen the Law & Order SVU and CSI Miami episodes?

I'm not sure why that commercial would get banned - you see much worse on TV... I suppose the idea of accociating playing the 360 and going on a public shooting spree would be a bit much, though.

I'm all for the baning of that commercial, but on the grounds that its crap, and I consider that I am a lesser person for having watched it. No banning car ads on the grounds that they may encourage people to drive recklessly, now that would be really stupid.

Cool T shirt.

I thought it was good. Immature as I remember being a kid and running around doing much the same thing as they are doing in that commercial. Makes me somewhat nostalgic. i especially liked the part where the guy 'shoots' the guy on the cell phone and the guy stops until he's done with the call before 'dying'.

Still, as has been said, Someone would dig up the video games lead to violence rather than silly fun. That's probably why it got pulled.
