    That's just as bad as that one commercial where the woman is talking about accidents in the workplace, then lo and behind, when she's carrying a huge pot of boiling water/grease, she slips and falls and gets burned badly, screaming murder... Yeah, these are effective... >.<

    If something like this were to happen in real life, I don't know what I'd do if I were there. Pretty much try to stop the guy from killing the waitress.

    heh. well they missed one of the Calgary Stampeders saying "We're the champs, n*gga!" on live national television right after winning the Grey Cup on Sunday. "Rules" is a strong word :lol

    As long as it was one of the non-imports, then Canadian content rules would still be fulfilled and all would have been good. Isn't that all the CRTC is concerned about anyways?

    I think that guy has had enough coffee, and I hope those kids learned a lesson.

    Funny, that never made it to TV; however, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) commercials that cheetorBWORG mentioned though did.. and they were even more graphic...

    don't know how to react, so your body just twitches the face muscles for no reason.

    I think a few of you missed the point of the commercial. It wasn't about the waitress being attacked.

    Working at TRU I've felt this way a few times.

    I know the message they are trying to convey with these things, but the are kinda absurdly funny in a way. Just out of nowhere the guy just berates a woman, chokes her and slaps her around. I saw the first one, this one, and an office one all thanks to youtube. Funny it is always a man doing the attacking and the victim is always female. Even the little kid. Why not with the kid one have it be a woman beating the snot out of a little boy just to keep genders fair. Woman can be abusive too. Yes it is typically a male doing the abuse to a wife or kid, but moms can be abusive too.
