I was browsing Youtube the other night and came across a BMW M5 commercial which apparently was banned from TV. It’s an older commercial since the M5 advertised is the previous generation model, codename E39.
I could also established from the video that the commercial was supposed to air in UK since the caption says: “The BMW M5. Fastest saloon car on the planet”. Saloon is the equivalent of sedan and it’s a very common word in the UK.
In my opinion, the commercial is very creative but I do see why TV stations would ban it.
P.S A reader just emailed me and said that some countries did air the commercial, for example South Africa.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwjMn6ltba0[/youtube]
