There are a lot of things that can be shown on foreign television that cannot be shown here in the states.

Gaylord, I haven`t heard that in a LONG time (other than in Meet the Parents)

But yeah, I just saw that commercial on tv the other night - I think it was Comedy Central.

it was aired, it was on earlier tonight.. adn as for crazygirl32 on the first page, you need to keep your mouth shut, eminem is not only hot WITH a good voice, but he actually cares about things that you obviously wouldn`t understand, like, for example his daughter and neice.. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??

Eh, effects are okay.

Other than that, not a big fan of Eminem or Rap.

And, as is apparent, I guess it isn`t banned, just pulled off the website at one time for some reason.

I bet someone who is making webpages just thinks that "banned" and "pulled" are synonyms.

Hmm, maybe because of the mild short blow up scenes.
But I personally see nothing wrong with it.

If that`s banned then I reckon it`ll be because Eminem himself will have got them to pull it, probably because he doesn`t want to be associated with the product, or they didn`t ask to use his song (which has happened before) or because he`s trying to keep a low profile what with all the media attention about his impending `retirement`.

Or maybe he`s just being an ass.

I think it would be cool if Eminem was in a M&M commercial. I wonder why they don`t have a brown M&M character? Would it be too politically incorrect? They all have Caucasian arms and legs anyway, as well as dark brown insides, so why should it matter?

I think it partially has to do with the mic looking like a large vibrator at the beginning.

Possibly the idea of someone combining Eminem and an iPod was considered way too lame for the general public`s taste?

they probably thought it was too violent and that listenting to ipods meant you could smash up things

At least its not as retarded as that U2 commercial. U2 sucks. Period.

But then again, iPod sucks too, so I guess U2 and the iPod make an excellent combination.

anyways maybe the people who made it thought it might promote people to throw paint or push other people...I dont know I`m just thinking of all the stupid reasons for things that get censored these days.
