This ad is adressed to standart public. They don't give a **** about details like "Oh the guy wasn't wearing protective mask! So it means we can do so! Yeah let's soot people without mask". People just saw a funny bear ad and they laught.
Plus, you should see the good side instead of crying again. Billions of people saw paintball. We don't care about the fact it was recball, "unsafe", etc. They saw it. Means some of them may want to try this now. More people will discovert the sport, more people will play.. paintball will grow.
So I understand people who cares about paintball image (cuz myself I do) but this ad wasn't a bad image to our sport. The bad images are such eminem shooting guy on street, hunting for bambi, kids shooting unprotected people on the street, etc. But in that case of this ad,nobody has been hurted, nobody has done a violent act with paintball marker. Just fun, laugh, beer.
Well the problem is that some morons will go hey those dudes in that bud light commercial shot that guy when he wasn't wearing a mask. Lets go try that! Really I think the paintball community always exaggerates these things, they never end up to be a bad thing. And always remember, there is no such thing as bad publicity
