Of course, European commercials are way racier than ones in the U.S. I heard this was a test commercial for Napster in the U.K. at www.getthewholething.com Can you imagine this on TV in the U.S.? Doubtful. It's super raunch and has this stripper girl on it...A mixed version of "Sunshine of Your Love". Not too bad. I am surprised that it has made it b4 the conservatives pounced... hehe

This was a Microsoft ad that ran for a few days, until Microsoft US found out about it and dropped it.

ummmmmmm... actually it's still running (i just checked) www.getthewholedeal.com I think what was taken off was a version which had two chicks (supposedly "released" in France according to the rumor mill) whispering naughty things to each other... it's edgy. I am surprised that they are going all out... but then again, sex sells right?
