Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero Commercial

November 14, 2008 -

On Fox News program The O'Reilly Factor, pundit Bill O'Reilly tries to drag Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero commercial into the culture wars, but even his two conservative female guests don't want to go there.

At issue is Heidi's Risky Business-inspired Guitar Hero shredding routine. O'Reilly is apparently concerned about the the moral effects of the commercial, featuring a lingerie-clad Klum, airing in prime time.

Then again, O'Reilly has never been much of a fan of video games. Or iPods. Or Blackberries. But Mr. Morality does enjoy a good loofa.

Nothing to see here, just O' Reiley trying to drum up controversy where there is none.  Business as usual for him.

He should get a side job working for Kotaku.

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

He'd get bored reporting about EVERY DAMN ERO GAME EVA 14 times a day for that.  Of course he could post the rumors he got from a disgarded napkin picked up outside a wendy's Blizzard employees have been known to frequent.  Sounds about on par with Kotaku's news integrity.

You'd think being in TV they'd understand demographics. That's why you never see commercials for Barbie's Dream Home while watching Heroes on NBC late-night, why you never see video game commercials on HGTV, and why you won't see that ad before 11pm on network TV. They filmed two versions of that, but of course they won't mention that on The O'Reily Factor.

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

HEY! This is the no-spin zone! If they went on to mention there were two ads, well, they consider that a spin! And there's no spins in the O'Reilly Factor! Everything he says, yells, slams out on his desk in Morse Code as he belittles the victim liberal meatbag, tearing into any of those anti-American bastards like the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, is absolutely, one-hundred percent, unquestionably true. He is the only unbiased media dog in the US, everyone else is too liberally biased, even Fox News.

Anyone who bitches about seeing Hedi Klum in lingerie has no right to call themself a man.

I find it funny that the one lady asks him if he every played guitar hero and he responds with "I don't even know what it is".

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

Considering I've had some friends tell me. "If I was straight I'd hit that." agreed.

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

Thats not the one they are showing on prime time TV.

The one they show during primetime, she never removes the shirt.

That is the one they are showing late at night around 11 pm.

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

I think Brokenscope is right. I've never seen the full commercial on during primetime. In fact, I doubt you'd see any Guitar Hero commercial on a family-oriented channel during primetime.

And the only thing that would have made this incident better would be if they showed a Guitar Hero commercial during the next break.

Dude... Bill O'Reilly would euthanize the weighted companion cube if given half a chance...

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

I don't know... I murdered the cube pretty darn quick (of course I cried for several hours later)

Yes and faster than any test subject on record.

On topic, was anyone else reminded of Bill Hicks' "Drink Coke" bit after reading this?

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

The ultimate commercial if they could ever get away with it.

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

Sluuurp sluuurp Oh yeah. I love it.

 

Oh wait, that was his George Michaels impression :) The drink coke was the naked woman with the logo :D

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

Yet, they show it on TV. I thought the news was suppose to be family friendly

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

Come on, that's par for the course with Fox News.  They broadcast raunchy stuff under the guise of criticizing it.  Remember Fox News Porn (Possibly NSFW)?

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

I don't even think they're showing that one on tv.

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

Oh my god!  A woman appears in lingerie in a commercial!  What will happen next?!

Good thing he has never seen the victoria secrets commercials that happen all the time during prime time.

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

I just had to laugh! Not at Bill O'Reilly, but at the commercial.

Is it for Guitar Hero or Victoria Secret? It shows almost no footage from the actual game, plays one song, and she's not even playing it properly! Sex does sell...

I think Bill is right on ONE account though: Heidi needs to cut back on the caffeine! LOL! 

Re: Bill O'Reilly Whines About Heidi Klum's Guitar Hero

The thing that surprises me is that in this case, it's a male (well, I'm loathe to refer to O'Reilly as a man, but apparently his gender is male, so I'll go with that) whining about it, and the women aren't.

Usually, guys would be complaining that it doesn't happen often enough, while some shrew will be whining about how it exploits women (nevermind the fact that sexual exploitation goes both ways and is never necessarily a forced condition, given the choices of clothing some make to wear).

Is it just opposite day?

benohawkThat still isn't Steam pay royalties. At best it is Bethesda not being willing to relicense the music,07/27/2015 - 12:51pm
Infophile(cont'd) different service. This often happened with TV shows, where music was only licensed for broadcast, but not for DVD release. So for many older shows, they either have to relicense it or use different/no music for the DVD release.07/27/2015 - 12:36pm
Infophile@benohawk: It most likely comes down to the original licensing agreement for the music in it. Often those agreements only license it for the medium it first releases in, so it has to be re-licensed if it's rereleased in a different form or through a ...07/27/2015 - 12:35pm

black mantaI recommend using the KMQuake II patch which supports .ogg music files, then downloading the music from someplace, then dropping it in to a music folder into the \baseq2 directory.07/27/2015 - 10:32am
