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.

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

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.

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

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?

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm
ZenMatthew: Emulation takes more power than people realize to run a game properly. You can make something run on less, but Nintendo...as slow as they are at releasing them..makes them run as close to 100% as possible. Each game has its own emulator for it.07/29/2014 - 4:47pm
Matthew Wilsonkind of hard to believe since the 3ds is atleast as powerful as the gamecube hardware wise.07/29/2014 - 4:27pm
MaskedPixelanteYes, the 3DS has enough power to run 16-bit emulators, but not at the same time it's running the 3DS systems themselves. You could run the games, but you wouldn't get save states or Miiverse.07/29/2014 - 4:04pm
InfophileRunning GBA on 3DS shouldn't be hard. The DS had flashcarts sold for it that added just enough power to emulate GBA and SNES games, so the 3DS should have more than enough natively.07/29/2014 - 3:37pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
