There's a lot of comedies on television... does this lead to a rise in comedy in the streets?

IN all seriousness, yeah, he should have kept his mask down... but sometimes, you just gotta see Neo do his backflip, even after you're dead. It's a TV ad, it's a misportrayal, but it's a portrayal. Anyone see Scary Movie (insert number?) where they used PGPs as "phaser guns" against the ghost? It shows how infrequently people see our sport. People were staring at me when I hollered out, "it's a PGP2k!".

So while yeah, good call, mask shoulda stayed down, don't let it stress you out.
Feedback.

I do oppose the playing of the commercial just because it is an unsafe portrayal, but I don't think it's going to influence millions of players around the world to start playing that way. I don't think it'll really affect anyone like that.

And besides think about it, its a VAULT commercial for pete's sake. They are all silly and unrealistic, like the one where he builds a football field in his backyard in one night for his son. I mean come on, it's not possible, neither are any of their other commercials so I don't think it's such a big deal.

You Tube Vault Commercial URL

it clearly shows scenes of players lifting their eye protection and no barrel bags

i made this comment

Quote

"this is FILTER DODGE because it portrays the sport of paintball in an unsafe way. anyone removing their eye protection around live paintball markers would be ejected from the field"

to which some dude replied

Quote

"OMG need to get a life...it's a commercial not a personal assault .....you really took offense to a commercial?...oh im sorry are you retarded? dude sorry i didnt know."

Everyone post on youtube and make a statement about how strongly we feel about the safety and the image of our sport!

i think you need to calm down a little, clearly no one and i mean no one is going to take that seriously, first off all, he whiped a squrill at the guy! wich was funny then hes does a backflip off a rock, come on. thats hilarious, i loled.

Yeah I did that too.

This commercial really won't make a large enough impact to get your panties in a bunch.

I think you should also protest the commercial that suggests killing hippies. I think people that see that will go out and think it's ok to kill hippies with a laser.

Wow. Let this die.
This is my sig. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My sig is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My sig, without me, is useless. Without my sig, I am useless. I must type my sig true. I must spell better than my enemy who is trying to judge me. I must type before he ridicules me. I WILL... My sig and I know that what counts in this forum is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the splatter we make. We know that it is the hits that count. WE WILL HIT... Before the Admins, I swear this creed. My sig and myself are the defenders of my forum. We are the masters of our enemy. WE ARE THE SAVIORS OF MY PROFILE. - Tippmann Owner #pi
