I love NASCAR and am not fat or a hick.  :'(

I agree. Mr T's generalisations are well out of order.

Yes, they are out of order. Please do not disrespect people like that. It won't be tolerated here.
Thank you.

Um, no they're not. Reread my post.

I don't see how I could be anymore critical of the horrid opinions being expressed in this thread.

Nascar fans are, I'd guess, statistically heavier than U2 fans.

Got it. According to you, Nascar fans are fat.

Has anybody in Canada seen this on TV?  I saw it online, but I have not actually seen it on TV.  Just curious if they are running that commercial up here.

Yup - on cable, though.  We get Detroit here in Saskatchewan.

Mr. T. I have reread the posts here. I apologize. You were responding to other posts here. You are all welcome to express why you are in favor of or against U2 using Bad in the NASCAR commercials. You are even allowed to dislike NASCAR! Wow , how cool is that?! But what we ask you not to do is make fun and generalize about a group of people (in this case NASCAR fans).  The tone of this thread is sour by a number of posts from different members.

You are welcome to continue this discussion in a respectful manner. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

wow. guessing U2 fans don't actually listen to the music they profess to love.

NASCAR fans are bad cause they're fat and hicks.

Amazing.

We're all scumbags.

Nascar fans. U2 fans.

It's pretty clear to me that Mr. T was criticizing U2 fans who make generalizations or enforce stereotypes in contrast to the messages espoused by Bono et. all...

Daytona 500. Used to play that game at the arcade.

Is that the track that's a perfect circle, or an oval...?

Hey, hearing U2 during a football game is great!  Especially 'Bad'. It is race car driving- its entertaining. It is all good.

So today my 1 year old got ahold of the Ipod and started Bad. *EPIC WIN*
So I had it in my head all day, and I was feeding him his snack and the Nascar commercial started playing at the exact moment it was playing in my head. It was freaky, but very cool.
