Too bad we cannot have commercials in the USA like that. Some one would be offended, and some one would get sued for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Some times I really hate how conservative the USA is.

Just like the anti drink-driving ads in the UK would never be brodcast here in the US...to realsitc and offensive...yet effective. Go figure.

Because if you showed this commercial in the USA, you would be sued by many different groups for offending them.....

I have a great idea...lets show these commercials in the usa and if they offend you then you have the right to change the channel

Very funny advert, any Brits (or others maybe) recognise the 'red eye' man from the Orange mobile adverts shown in cinemas here?
Anyone got any stories of wonderfully camp aircrew? I remeber one lovely boy working for Olympic on a domestic flight of about 30minutes who was terribly professional and very very camp.

Clever ad, love it.

Does anyone (especially in South Africa) remember a hilarious TV advertisement there for Sun Air (about 1999 or so)? I saw it a couple of times on TV in Cape Town. It was poking fun at SAA's service, and feature a very campy, black guy in a white uniform with matching "pillbox" hat making a service announcement. Passengers were crammed into seats and subjected to various indignities, etc. I would love to see that one again!

There's no way any of these commercials would ever be aired in US...our puritanical government, coupled with a citizenry that gets offended at the slightest little things, equates one simple conclusion: We Yanks are wayyyyyy too stuffy to allow commercials like these to air...

Pity, cause they're all hilarious. I'm gay, and there is NOTHING offensive about them (especially the non-gay ones)...

Hats off to countries where these are normal...maybe, someday, we'll catch up with you.

I'm pretty sure I've seen that Travelocity UK commercial on NBC's "Most Outrageous" show. Sure, it's basically is a 24 min. clip job filler program. Still, the ad has run on US broadcast TV.
