Some of you might have read around the internet about an ad for the XBOX 360 (entitled "Stand Off") that wasn't going to be aired on television because it featured gunplay. Now, having actually stared at the ad, "gunplay" is the most descriptive word for this video, literally. It's a shame really that it didn't get its 90 seconds on tv that it actually deserves!

you just have to see it for yourselfCheck it out here (http://www.360monster.com/video/xbox/xboxstandoff.wmv)

Seems long for a commercial, but it's cool.... I guess it could put ideas in kids minds, but how much harm could a finger really do? I guess water guns should be banned also.

Hilarious. It might run in Canada because we're cool like that and a flashed boob doesn't bring our country to its knees.

I like the water balloon commercial too. I love the teddy bears picnic song :)

You're in Canada. I could be wrong, but I believe only the States is suffering from a case of paranoid censorship.

I find this commercial to be way better than the jump rope one I wish it would air in the US.

that is really funny. the majority of us americans are just to damn sensitive and to intent on blaming someone else for what goes wrong in there lives. I feel really bad for anyone who has ever had violence brought into there lives by gun's but you cant blame tv for that. many people have been killed in car wrecks so whats next are they going to ban all hot wheels commericals where there is a car wreck? that is really all this is they are just playing a game its not even like they have fake guns, they have fingers.

I think is funny we won't air an ad with a bunch of adults running around shooting each other with their fingers. But we have no problem with showing people on T.V. shows shooting each other with Fake guns. When I was a kid it was those shows that made me run around like the people in that AD. Plus we air the ads for COD2 with explosions and people getting shot. I love america but Censor Ship Sucks.

Everyone here is making the assumption that the ad was not run on account of the illustration of violence.

Ever given thought to the idea that perhaps it's not about the violence? Perhaps it's about adults using their imaginations, and to those in power, that's far far more frightening than a gunfight in the slums ;)
