You must be fucking kidding me? Our ridiculousness outdoes yours does it?
Description: This ad was banned either for its liberal use of bollocks (look it up), or for the "dangerous" behavior it promoted in children: the little girl could've hurt herself reaching for the c...

Rohil Chauhan Dec 01, 2012
What kind of ducking retards would complain about this ad!? It was the best ad on the telly and every time it came on it made me proud to be a petrolhead! We are a minority ever shrinking. :(
Josh Banning Dec 01, 2012
I've seen this loads of times in the U.K.
Gazel Hebbert Dec 01, 2012
That was really good! Why've I never seen it in the US? It's always those lame Toyota commercials that make me yawn. This makes me want one.
Kyle McCullough Dec 01, 2012
Fricken awesome!
Darien Scruggs Dec 01, 2012
Yeah that was one of the best car commercials I've ever seen!
John Atnip Dec 01, 2012
This one is still ridiculous. This is a great commercial! Makes me want a Toyobaru every time I watch it
Description: General Motors tried to pull a fast one with this Vauxhall Ampera (Volt) ad. The spot was banned for suggesting the hybrid gets a cool 360 miles on a single charge. Pretty sneaky, sis.

Cian Mac Gearailt Dec 01, 2012
God i love a welsh accent why was it band?
Brendan Bell Dec 01, 2012
I like this better than the volt- it looks more futuristic and agressivr
John Atnip Dec 01, 2012
I don't believe it's been as problematic as the Volt either...
Geoff Novak Dec 01, 2012
I like the styling of the ampere more than the volt.
Description: Volkswagen's ingenious "Fight" commercial for the Golf was deemed too violent to be viewed before 9 p.m. Apparently British viewers aren't ready to see awesome car commercials befo...

Kwasi Prempeh Dec 02, 2012
@sebastian we are all entitled to an opinion. Carbuzz introduced the political forum by posting the ads. If you can't stand the heat...
Kwasi Prempeh Dec 02, 2012
My Bad michael I used the wrong figure only 9,000 murders, not including Illinois and Florida according to FBI figures. As for your argument of more Law abiding citizens carrying guns....
Cian Mac Gearailt Dec 01, 2012
Sebastian is right also this is a stupid long and boring ad that put me off golfs
Sebastian Grey Dec 01, 2012
Oh shut up all of you. This is a place for cars not political debate.
Michael Macho Dec 01, 2012
Well if more responsible citizens carried a firearm, those numbers would be significantly lower. And site your source were you did get that number from.
Kwasi Prempeh Dec 01, 2012
Please remember over 16000 gun related murders in the US last year.
David Gray Dec 01, 2012
Because we are trying to keep the amount of shootings and gang violence in schools down to a minimum....
