Violence in Super Bowl Ads

The darkness of the Super Bowl ads

I watched most of these ads yesterday, but didn't notice the underlying theme. Gosh! Did we become so tolerant of violence in our media?

And the scientific evidence shows that they either did not connect with the audience or scared the hell out of them. hmmm

A comment in the above blog that makes sense:

Sweet jehova! Let's not go overboard here. I think Anonymous was right when he said the companies thought it was safer to go with violence over sex. Sex get's you fined by the FCC. The violence in these comercials was the equivalent of Wile E. Coyote getting an anvil to the head. As another poster said, the tolerance for violence in this country is very high, particulary of the sort on display Sunday (during a violent sporting event). Make those ads realistic, showing the physical aftermath of said violence and you'd probably have several million poeple crying out with you.
