    Maybe we need some - those lame W/Comp posters that get covered by company picnic posters [*if* they even get hung up] don't seem to be doing any good.

    Though it keeps my clients in "business".

    Well. I guess that even though he knows it's fake he could still see that face. In his mind. :/

    Peripheral Topic:

    People bringing small children into R (or even PG13) rated movies? Especially horror or action w/ violence/sex?

    WTF.

    Some crew had two kids in 28 Weeks Later - I almost kicked the dude in the teeth. They left after ~20 minutes thankfully.

    I went too thirty days of night with my dad. But I don't get scared very easily.

    ( Except for things that pop up, like in that advertisement. )

    You should have. Has that crew ever heard of the interwebz?

    I see you're ~16/17, that seems more than reasonable (terrific movie BTW! I have the graphic novel around here somewhere, beautiful piece of work).

    I understand the logistics of a sitter, but bringing the kids - and these were wee-folk, like < 8/yrs - isn't an option. Sitter or wait for the video release.

    Well the kick-in-the-teeth was just to express my disdain (and wouldn't have helped anyway), but it seemed tantamount to child abuse.

    Hahaha, Adam, expecting the general public to have common sense...

    We have tonnes of public information adverts, mostly about alcohol awareness, driving and cigarettes though.
    I love you, Adam.

    Maybe those people deserve to get their face melted off if they actually get something out of that advert.

    Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

    Maybe they weren't fully aware of consequences, I can't say everyone isn't an idiot. This'll just scare them to death and get the message hammered in.
    I love you, Adam.

    Fully aware of the consequences? -_-;

    I'm on the optimistic side of idiocy, it seems.

    After watching the commercial, I have to agree that that was a bit over the top. There's really no need for it at all. What are they advertising, anyway?

    Ares is an awesome name. The god of war happens to be one of my good friends. Tell the kid I said hi.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd
