Slash’s face dooms MasterCard commercial

Slash Here’s a MasterCard ad that doesn’t strike me as terribly offensive. I imagine its supposed banishment from the airwaves had to do with the kid smashing the guitar, but that seems fairly tame, considering that certain people got famous doing it, and no one gets hurt. No, I think the real culprit was showing Saul Hudson’s uncovered face, which is ugly enough to fall afoul of obscenity regulations. Hiding one’s repulsive mug behind six pounds of stringy hair? Priceless.
