This is the latest Sonic the Hedgehog commercial. At the end they describe Sonic as: "faster than a speeding you know what". In the commercial, they show a bullet being shot. Are we at such a point where you can't say bullet in a commercial for fear of some sort of penalty or lawsuit? And if you can't say it, why can you show it?

Because the phrase is most likely trademarked/copyrighted to Superman's current publisher, and they'd have to get permission and pay to use it.

I just woke my girlfriend up from laughing so hard at The World's Fatest Clapper. Wouldn't want to get into a slapboxing match with him.
