What, more objectionable material from Canada? This has to be some kind of record. This time, it’s this Toronto Blue Jays ad with slugger Frank “Big Hurt” Thomas “engaged in a pillow fight with kids” that has offended. Apparently, it’s a little too violent for Canadian sensibilities, as it shows Thomas swinging for the fences with a pillow and knocking a kid off a bed. You may think Canada is overreacting, but here in the U.S., the police may have led Thomas away. He may be a nice guy, but a 275-pound man approaching a bed full of playful children doesn’t send the right message in a nation as paranoid as ours. So, kindly leave the pillow fighting to Visa and it’s two grown men.
