    Rather silly I think. Do people really watch commercials and think they are totally real? Eating sugar pops wont make your kids run faster. Leprachauns dont really steal your lucky charms and create rainbows to get away. Fred and Barney dont fight over fruity pebbles. The list just goes on.

    LOL. Every commercial exaggerates. Have ya'll banned commercials that show people jumping further or running faster with tennis shoes?

    i remember one apple commericial in particular that had an app download from the app store directly to the phone. we all know how slow that is. well it was completely done and the app was launched in about five seconds.

    This is funny. I think what people do fail to realize is, the commercial that was banned was made in order to show multiple features of the iPhone as quickly as they can. The longest they can make the commercials is :29-:29 1/2 seconds (technically they can't be exactly 30 because they need the time for fadeaway into next commercial). Would you buy the phone if they only thing you saw on the commercial was it opening up Safari and loading one page?

    seriously if apple put in the actual time the commercial would end before the app got done installing.

    You do sort of have a point, if they ban the iphone ad then they should ban like every other ad. Because the last time I checked I didnt turn into chocolate when I put AXE on, Redbull doesn't make me sprout wings and fly while making out with some chick, and viagra does NOT make the neighbors happy, matter of fact it makes them call the cops.
