    the Snickers as with the 2 guys who accidentally touch lips got yanked too, b/c the gay militia felt it protrayed homosexuality as disgusting...

    the Euros got us beat by a mile on commercials - they don't take themselves too seriosly...

    Yeah....that was at the end of the robot article.

    I think maybe those wacky Europeans are on to something. Perhaps having the majority of their continent leveled by a world war evened their attitudes a bit.

    Please take it for what it's worth, it's a commercial If someone's on the verge of a succesful suicide that commercial is'nt going to be the difference that pushes them over the edge

    This is a little over the top -- we can't even look at some body the wrong way today without it becoming a big deal -- an anti-suicide group upset over a GM robot thinking of jumping off a bridge ?!?!?!? -- maybe it was ready to jump because it learned of GM's profit margin for last year (my attempt at humour) -- as a side note really like those new GMC Sierra and Chev Silverado trucks

    When did offending someone become the worst thing you could do?????

    It seems to me the more political correctness is jammed down our throats the more division are created.

    I live in No Dak. We say "yeah, you betcha" eat lefse, some even eat lutefisk. That is not a sterotype it is a discription.

    Enough of the Politically correct BS These people need to Toughen up

    if I remember the commercial correctly the robot was dreaming anyway ...
