(quote) "I am amazed at that M&M commercial that shows people running in fear and looking up at buildings they are Chinese I is so odd they would air something like that..then a giant yellow M&M shows up. "

A little culture shock correction is called for here. The commercial is a spoof on one of Japan's media macinery product; the bad "Godzilla ,Rodan, Mothra, whathaveya giant beastie gone beserk movies, Always had bad dubbing ,always had bad compositing ( then called "super-imposing" of real people in front of toy models of cities ). It's all campy parody which means *taste* couldn't be further from the point of it , it's aimed at pre-teens ,teens, and over-grown teens who still eat that garbage , and has zero to do with *9/11*.

Case dismissed. ;-)
