Damn it, I was expecting wrestlers.

The earth is trying to kill us with tsunamis, earthquakes, fires, floods, sabre toothed tigers. Clearly the answer is not to conserve it but to beat it into submission.
Americans really hate it when you talk out worse disasters in other countries that Americans generally don't care about (e.g. every other country that's not the U.S.) But they do love the ability to use those disasters to feed into their victim complex, such as when they called the floods that followed Katrina "our tsunami."
They're not talking about Hurricane Katrina, as those floods did not kill anywhere near 280,000 people. They must be referring to the Tsunami that hit Thailand and Indonesia at the end of 2004.
No, I realize that. I guess I didn't make myself all that clear (or you misunderstood me.) I'm well aware of the REAL tsunami as I was in Thailand the next year and saw much of the devestation. I'm saying that Americans cannot stand to hear about bigger and badder disasters in other areas of the world, and I used the mantra "Katrina was OUR tsunami!" as an example of that. And obviously that's an offensive comparison for reasons already given (by you.)
It's probably our 2nd or 3rd favorite thing, right after being victims and fatty foods.
I'm not entirely sure what they're selling.
Yes, environmentalism will protect us from tsunamis.
Stuff like this is all we're going to see next year.
I'm going to 5 star this just to see what happens.
okay you've convinced me let's blow up the earth.
+2 stars for Hulktember 11th
1 Star for being tasteless and because I've already had a deep hatred of the WWF for stealing their initials from the wrestling organization.

Somebody walked out of a meeting all confident and certain that people would look past the imagery of this commercial and see the message behind it.
That person now spends most of his free time straining rubbing alcohol through toast in his new cardboard house behind a Walmart.
WTC related stuff has never really bothered me but even I was a little bothered by just how stupidly it's being used here.
The video was never produced or approved by WWF and was based on a print ad that was made by a Brazil ad company which was also not approved by WWF. Needless to say WWF is just a little pissed that someone made this.
