If I was the Pope, I"d allow this commercial--at least it would show that I had a sense of humor.

I, Pope Benedict do doth decree that said bobble head internet commercial shall be bannished from said internet. All those who continue to view it through avenues such as IAB shall incur an additional 500 days in pergatory lest they should confess their sinful viewing of said commercial. Said commercial shall never be viewed within the four corners of the earth. Flibbitty, flobbitty foo. Amen

If any of you would read the links posted you would see that it was not banned. The catholic church just suggested that it should be removed due to the fact that the pope bobblehead was inaccurate. It had the pope dressed in the garb of a cardinal not a pope. Nitpicking for sure but saying it was banned was inaccurate. By the way for any of you a hole flamer b itch s out there I am protestant.

It wasnt really banned but rather removed because it was inaccurate. But I think I know the real reason the word "banned" is used. When you ban something, everyone wants to see it. Advertising at its finest.

Fancylad, I`d really like to know why the word `banned` was used. Not for any `Catholic/ anti-Catholic rant but in the interest of simple PC blogging. Like wb1059 said, it was in very bad taste.

Ok first of all: No one has "Banned" anything. The Catholic Church does not have any power to ban anything in the United States. A bishop found the commercial to be in bad taste, and politely asked Metro to remove it. Metro, responding in a similarly polite manner, removed the offensive commercial.
Second, this was never a TV spot. It was on the Metro website. It wasn`t really a commercial even, it was more like an instructional video on how to use the Metro the day of the Papal Mass.
I must say I am very disappointed at the description of this video. It is either intentionally misleading or very ignorant. I`m not trying to hold this site to the same standards I would the evening news but this is just very, very bad and sloppy posting.
Is the intent to provoke a religious flame war? Because that`s the only reason I can see for this. This was so bad I had to make my first post in a couple years to express my displeasure.

How did the Catholic Church ban this? What media outlets does the Church control? I always thought that it was the Jews who controlled the media! (Just kidding.) If this is a real commercial it should be banned because it is slow and not funny.

Fake - that`s way too long to be a commercial spot, and the production values are far too low.

And what do you mean "Banned by the Catholic Church"? How does the catholic church "ban" something on TV?

Let`s have some source reference, I-A-B, before jumping to conclusions. Where, exactly, did you get this commercial from, and why do you think it`s "banned"? (And that goes double for all of you idiotic Catholic-bashing commenters.)

Hearing this makes me dislike Catholics more. (And yes yes wah wah I know you`re not all the same or whatever. And if anyone still feels the need to reiterate that point, I will continue my dislike of Catholics and bump it up another notch.)

If EVERYONE on the car had started singing in Latin...that would have been a riot. Loved the escalator and the "unholy traffic"

I think they banned it for low production quality.

Also on an unrelated note... why is it a bobble head of a cardinal instead of the pope. Cardinals wear red, the pope wears white.

Well first of all they don`t have a sense of humor.
And second even if they did have a sense of humor it`s not very funny.
