If the potential censor says it needs taking out, they get to act all offended and their fans say the censor is pathetic. If the potential censor leaves things as they are, someone else will complain, it will be in the papers, they will probably still have to stop playing the song/video, and EVERYONE will say they are pathetic. Either way it drives media coverage of the song, and increases sales.You would hope there would be some artistic merit in all this, to make it worthwhile for everyone. And sometimes there is.In this case, I just felt it was a shame to spoil the innocence of the stadium puppets idea with a silly reference to Team America. I mean, we already GET the similarities, don't we?

Draws people's attentions to potential problems. Still, would only take one person to spot it, and they'd soon complain about the dear licence fee ;) Tue 10 Feb 2009 23:02:15 GMT+1 catman231 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chartblog/2009/02/wash_your_mouth_out_chris_mart.shtml?page=0#comment0 Puppets (and the whole claymation thing) seem to be 'in' at the moment. Coldplay have done it and a certain popular brand of deodorant have released a new advert which features characters of a very similar ilk. Wed 04 Feb 2009 17:31:53 GMT+1
