A funny commercial!

I just learned that Ronald Lee Ermey (the sergeant) died on April 15th.

I will forever remember his role in Full Metal Jacket, and in particular, this scene:

HegeMarie, what a talent he was, I had no idea of his death. I had not seen Full Metal Jacket, but that opening scene is surely some kind of masterwork! Still wondering why the commercial would have been banned, with two such fine actors now.

You are  right, it is a masterpiece!

Stanley Kubrick was known as a perfectionist and a control freak, but he was ALSO known to let his actors improvize if he thought it worthwhile.

It certainly was in the case of Ronald Lee Ermey, and he made up many funny lines in this movie.

Stanley Kubrick was said to be bursting out in laughter of his perfomances from the sideline, and I wonder if this may be the worst insult ever:

"Bullshit. It looks to me like the best part of you ran down the crack of your mama's ass and ended up as a brown stain on the mattress."

As for the commercial being banned; I have no idea. Beer commercials are illegal in my corner of the world, but it would surprise me if they are in the US.

Well HegeMarie, as the worst insult ever that certainly would be a contender!

But why was it banned?  It's hilarious!

Oh, and don't mess with Rooster's beer... :P

Yay  Beer!

O'Tink I noticed in the comments that this wasn't really banned, but maybe wasn't shown very much? idk why, I loved it...

Lol - Virginia, this commercial is a funny one. 

Banning it is ridiculous. 

Why can't they just add the recommendation to enjoy in moderation?

Marianne, I don't even have a TV now...cigarette commercials were banned a long time ago, but have they now banned beer commercials? Well even so, I DO think an exception should be made for one like this!
