M_I_C_H_A_E_L: Wow theres a hole 90 seconds of Ads OMG call the police, whats the big deal?


For those of us that have our surround sound on full blast for rugby matches, especially the opening haka, it kind of kills the mood when you get "HARVEY NORMAN 18 MONTHS INTEREST FREE! NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY!!!!" at 150% of the volume that the rugby match was at.


Lucky you don't watch the Super Bowl then,,

Doesn?t really bother me, but very surprised there hasn?t been a huge outcry from the Maori community about this.

Just thinking back a couple of years when Wales wanted to perform their anthem after the Haka and the ABs decided to do it in their changing rooms instead.
If performing a national anthem is that offensive, then Harvey Norman ads must be 10 x as offensive.

It wouldn't make any different to me, I don't understand "Rugby speak" anyway.  I'm sure whatever happens RWC Ltd will be the winner on the day :)

They claim it will be in English with 5-10% Maori.

I hope all of NZ watch the game live tonight, it will make my trip to Ohakune so much quicker Laughing
