Wow. That is really uncool of Ganz. I can't even imagine how that got past the group of people that work there that must have written it, recorded it, made the video, etc. Really surprising- and going against their own rules. They should not only pull that, but apologize as well. I'm an adult, and I still find cussing offensive.
The crazy thing is that the ad that played first in the spot, also had a word that would be censured here on WI. What are they thinking??
I also noticed that. I thought that was a bit mature for Ganz's audiences. I honestly didn't like the video at all anyway. But yeah, Ganz is becoming too focused on their adult audiences I guess. It annoys me. I'm not a little kid or an adult, but it still...I don't know. Ganz will probably have a lawsuit from this now. I still love my Webkinz plushies, and I'd still buy more, but the site is just going down for me.
I noticed that, too! I really can't believe that made it through to the final video. The whole point of the joke is that the two words sound the same. (I think that's called a homophone- when two words sound the same, but are spelled differently.) Anyway, I was really surprised. You certainly can't use that word in KinzChat plus, so what is it doing in the POTM video??
Wow, that's not very cool on Ganz's part. I agree with Desty, what were they thinking? How inappropriate. I honestly think they need to do something. How did it even get into he final video? Wow I guess we can just hope they do something about it, and hope it doesn't happen again.
I hadn't watched it yet but I read this thread so I logged on and watched it. I'm extremely disappointed. Webkinz is a family friendly site and I don't know why they felt the need to slip a joke like that in their video. Maybe it doesn't seem like a big deal to some ppl but I think that the more kids are exposed to bad language the more they think of it as "Normal", and that everyone talks that way.
I left a comment about it but I was wondering if anyone on webkinzinsider has a more direct link to ganz and could express our disappointment to them?
Wow, I had to hear this for myself. And he really does say that. I mean sure its not the worse word, but its a terrible word for kids. And I don't know about you, but I remember when I was a little kid I liked to repeat jokes I heard and I'm pretty certain my parents would have questioned said joke. I mean, I know its used because well he ran into a wall. And the wall is one. But it was INTENTIONALLY used in the other context as well. When you do something painful what's the first thing you say? Something terrible right? This is a little upsetting. Its almost as if they TRIED to get away with it.
Sure its not a terrible word. But still. Its one of those 'Really Ganz. Really." Moments.
ok i understand it is bad but it isn't the worst word and the joke is because a dam is a thing that holds back water, so i am sure they mean that not the bad word. I understand where you guys are coming from though because when kids hear things im sure they know it is a bad word and not acceptable. It is like the fred movie because he was talking about the same thing too. The 2 words are spelled different. It really isn't acceptable though
