And the point is, with a little padding and eye protection, those paintballs won't leave a mark.

The background video on their site shows they made special protective suits out of an epoxy flex tape and the hoods covered the paintball masks. They said it still stung but was bearable.

Who comes up with this cuss word cuss word cuss word. Uttering a cuss word relaxes you. It's a pressure relief valve for the soul.

I have played paintball on numerous occasions. A mask and a couple of baggy sweatshirts and you're invincible.

Although that shot in the hand probably stung.

Cussing also helps with pain relief.

All of the previous insight aside...

1. That's a well done commercial video. Kudos to the team that put it together.
2. As a parent, I can see the value in this service, although removing some elements from some movies will kill the movie. 300 or Gladiator without violence? Goodfellas without cursing and violence? Doesn't work.

I've watched Gene Hackman in the "French Connection" in English, Spanish, French and Czech just to hear him poetically swear the hell off.

I like the "every word has impact" at the end. Which if you're sensitive enough about it makes a bit of sense, but really they are just words.

A symbolic volley of paintballs to protective clothing sends a different message (at least to me) than they are intending.

Which is, grow a thicker skin and it won't bother you any.
