This is the controversial video that was not aired in Canada. It seems that Frank Thomas originally was shown chatting with these boys in an online chat. Then Dateline NBC's Chris Hanson is shown asking what he was doing there and then read his chat transcript where he used the screen name "BJRyanblowsnotonlysaves". Only did he let Frank go when he said he was going to knock some sense into this boy with a pillow because they were A-Rod fans.
Not really but the controversy over this video is about as silly as that scenario I just laid out above.
The Television Bureau of Canada, a regulatory body for private broadcasters objected to the boy getting hit by the pillow and falling off the bed. Forget that he gets back up and says "Wow". So the Bluejays had to edit it so he didn't fall and also put in a disclaimer ""Dramatization. Do not try this at home." Like it would take kids a commercial to even realize that pillows are great objects for fighting with.
I guess if Canada were in charge of commericals in the United States we wouldn't have any Victoria Secrets commerical either.
