Skip to comments.Visa Olympic commercial reminds me of 9/11 WTC jumpers. Very bad taste, IMO.

The commercial starts with diver David Boudia climbing up the Burj Dubai, and jumping off, with his reflection shown as the way the 9/11 jumpers were, and then he hits the water, and others were following him in their dives, only that they lived and the crowd celebrates.
Oh good grief.
Your tin foil is on a little tight
Don’t see the connection.
You”re reeeeeeally reaching to come to that conclusion
Should we outlaw gravity?
Interesting description and I think I’d probably come to the same conclusion if I had seen it before being blurbed.
You need to realize that this was 11 years ago, and some people on this site weren’t watching the live coverage of the people jumping from those buildings. Of course the media then virtually blacked out any reference to those events, since it helps Republicans (in their twisted minds).
...but I do remember, and it is way too vivid. The idea of seeing diving off your own building from above had to be EXACTLY what thousands of people experienced right before the collapse.
If this wasn’t designed to be ‘controversial’; then WHY have comments been ‘disabled’? Hmmmm..?
Reeeeeally? Where does a person jump from over 200 feet and survives into a 12 foot pool of water, and we are supposed to believe that a person can survive an over 2,000 foot dive into a 12 foot pool of water.
JMO, the parallels of the commercial are undeniable, except when you jump off a muslim building you survive.
I think one would have to go out of their way to be offended by this.
“If this wasnt designed to be controversial; then WHY have comments been disabled? Hmmmm..?”
Can’t argue that - I was just pointing out that some people here don’t have the background to understand the significance of seeing people jumping off of buildings has to others.
It’s sort of like being asked to register with the government if you’re Jewish. Sounds harmless enough...unless you know what comes next. Or registering your guns...
Plain Silly....nothing wrong with the commercial...enough with the insanity.
But yet you made the link, and basically refuse to acknowledge it, that is something called denial.
Well what can I say. Sorry for not being offended. I promise to try harder next time.
Actually you have it exactly backwards, if they want it to be controversial they keep comments ON, that way people can stir the controversy. You turn comments off when you want things to stand alone non-controversially. Someone will always find a way to misinterpret things.
