Bang! - Xbox 360

Well allegedly this advert was deemed to risky to air by Microsoft executives.

Which is a shame as its an amusing twist on the lots of guns movie joke.

Its pretty amusing, but the key thing about it for me is that it really puts across a sense of fun and bonding that is exactly what Microsoft is pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into Xbox Live to achieve.

Banned 360 Ad

I can understand why they dont show it... but the idea works very well.

This is ripped off from an episode of the greatest British sitcom of all time - Spaced!

I wouldnt say that its a completely original idea. But yeah, Spaced did it best!
