Cultural differences

I was watching American TV while in San Diego and Darlene and I saw a Wendy's commercial where these two guys are discussing the food they're eating and one asks the other what it tastes like. The other guy responds by slapping him really hard. We looked at each other and went, "Wow. Is this what advertising has come to?"

Back in Canada, I just happened to catch what I thought was the same commercial, but the guy answering didn't slap the other guy. He used one of those canned air horns. It was then that I realized how much less violent we are in Canada. It even plays out in our advertising.

Assuming the slap ad doesn't exist here....
