New Taco Bell ad with REALLY dangerous "knife play."

Holy crap. I just saw a new Taco Bell ad on TV that features a chef wildly waving and pointing a large kitchen knife at her students. NOT funny and glorifying VERY dangerous behavior.

What do you guys think?? Have I become overly sensitive to stupidity with weapons?

Here's a link to it online:

I saw it on TV. I hear what you're saying. Goes along with all the foolish gun play things done on film. I bet more people realize that's dumb to do with a knife than they do the things they see actors playing with guns.

I'm mixed on it. I see what they are trying to do but on the other side of me it's not doing it in a responsible way.

I understand it's supposed to be "funny." But, change the knife for a gun. Now is it still funny? I don't see a difference.

saw it, thought is was funny, lots of stuff on tv is dangerous if attempted in real life.

I was waiting for a take down maneuver from somebody with the chops to do it.

I saw it and thought, wow that isn't safe. Not that they care what I think. I try to avoid Taco Hell anyway for a multitude of reasons. Just more dumb folks making commercial for the masses.

World have been funny if someone had pulled out a S&W 442 and ordered her to drop the knife. . .
