    Posted: 18 Dec 2011 at 1:03am
I can't seem to find a clip of this video anywhere, which is a damn shame.....because if I have to be subjected to it twice a commercial break on the discovery channel, I should at least have the opportunity to show it to my fellow CIH'ers. Maybe it's only on in my market (Boston)? 

ANYway - Shows this guy dressed in a suit with two WAY OVERLY busty girls in tight office clothes (obviously strippers or porn stars) walking down the street, they run into this group of thuggish looking black dudes dressed in their colors. Guy in suit with busty entourage come up to the group of thug dudes and asks them something about them being a gang. As the porn stars kind of back off and prance out of the shot, the leader of the gang yells at guy in suit proclaiming "We ain't no gang! We is an organization! We got 401K, health insurance....", (Yes, yes sir. I see also that your "organization" doesn't offer a course in proper English) and then.... inexplicably, guy in suit just SLAPS the gigantic black dude. Shocked

Gigantic black dude stops for a minute, looking at the guy in the suit like his eyes are going to pop out of his face. Dude in suit proclaims, "I can't believe I just did that......" and books it down the alley (yeah buddy, good choice...no one EVER gets murdered in an alleyway) running from the gang as the gang starts after him. The video freezes mid-escape and words come up on the screen beckoning you to go to www.buy.xxx to get your domain name now, before someone else does. 

I mean, what the F&%$???? What does the gang, and this stupid white boy slapping their leader have ANYTHING to do with registering your porno site at a .xxx domain? Man, I wish I could find the video.....Confused

Well, your questions might be answered within this article.  Although the article references a different commercial, my guess is that the company tried coming up with a less racy version.

Here's the commercial:
 
 
 
I've seen the white guy before...on Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld.  I wasn't particularly impressed by him, although in one episode, he gradually shaved his beard entirely off.  I guess he's some sort of prankster type.

It doesn't tell you exactly what it's for and there's nothing inappropriate about the commercial, so I can see how it gets around the FCC rules or guidelines. But yeah, that IS what it's for. I just think the commercial is stupid. What does assaulting the leader of a non-gang have to do with registering for a porno domain name???

Probably nothing more than to get people talking about it and looking it up on the 'net.  Just like we did...kinda like Pavlov's dogs.  LOL

A lot of companies and universities are buying up their own .xxx domain names just to keep them out of the hands of people who might use them for "less reputable" purposes.... 

For example:
" NOW NOW NOW at www.Disney.xxx !!!!  7 Dwarf Porn !!!!  Pirate Sluts of the Caribbean !!!!  Dumbo's Jumbo CensoredShocked !!!! "

FINALLY I've been looking for this commercial! Hahahaha with the black guys, and that Keenan Thompson clone using early 90's slang like they practiced off New Jack City, "WHO YOU MESSIN WITH BUSTERRR?!". This commercial sidetracked me from my Indiana Jones marathon on Syfy.

HAHAHAHAHA! He DOES look like Keenan Thompson! And he says the word "buster" at least three times in this commercial, which has driven me crazy since I first saw it. I was waiting for him to break out with "WHAT YOU TALKIN' 'BOUT WILUSZ?!" Dear God.........Angry

I don't think the site the commercial refers to is a porn site but rather a domain trading site, similar to go what go daddy does when you pay them to register a domain name. Only this site deals strictly in domain trading and not all the other stuff like hosting and webdesign that go daddy provides.

Domain trading is a fairly new niche where people can make $ via buying expired domain names and then reselling the domain. They make a lot of money if they catch a popular site not renewing the domain lease on time. If  Google didn't renew their lease or ownership of the google.com domain in time and accidentally let it expire then the domain would be on the market for anybody to purchase. Google would pay a LOT of money to buy back that domain name and  whoever bought it would benefit. Its the type of trading that can stretch ethics to the limit.

They use the xxx in the site name probably because its a commonly used search term and will generate visits to the site.  Porn still remains one of the strongest influences on internet traffic and the way we do business on the web.

I have to respectfully disagree. The women in this commercial are clearly porn stars (one did an interview as such) and they are being used to propagate the .xxx domains. Also- no one could buy the google.com domain. That would constitute cybersquatting and is illegal. Google would sue them and win. We just had a case like that at work.

He is right, it is a domain trading/buying site, but it is porn domains they are dealing with.  I recall seeing this in the news a few months back about how the suffix .xxx was being set aside for porn.
