I saw that and thought the same thing. Good Lord. I guess Holocaust humor is next.

“After the first shot, everything was a blur...”

“Bombshells everywhere.”

You have to parse each word to get the full effect. I’m sorry, but I’m totally LOL!

Not a bad commercial if you take it the right way...

Lighten up.

I don’t think it’s offensive. I also don’t think it’s funny or effective.

What the brave men and women sacrificed in WWII was much bigger than a stupid commercial.

Yeah, my reaction to the commercial was also negative.

Play that commercial side-by-side with the opening sequence of ‘Saving Private Ryan’ and it’s really not that funny.

I didn't appreciate the humor in the ad, but I'm insulted by about %80 of modern advertising.

Good thing I turn the other cheek rather than strap on TNT.

My Father landed at Normandy but a couple of weeks after D-Day. I don’t think the ad would bother him all that much but I personally thought it was just a little in bad taste.

I mean I have seen much much worse, but still a little out of line.

I’m not sure I understand the complaint. Is it because there is an actor playing a veteran? Or is it the very idea that a veteran might want to go vacation in a place he once fought in a war? Or is the way they have the veteran speak offensive?

Would it matter if the actor was actually a veteran? If he was a veteran that had actually stormed that beach?

The letter back was pretty funny though, saying they read your letter but not in any way responding to your complaint.

Good for you! This commercial was certainly not funny. There’s one hell of a difference between landing under fire on Omaha beach after wading through ravaged corpses and landing on the beach at Cancun after and wading through numbers of bloated tourists snorkeling in the water on the way to the bar for the afternoon tipple. Invoking memories of D-Day to market a second rate resort is beneath contempt!

Lighten up Francis...

That commercial is no different than any comedy movie or TV show set during World War II or any war.
