Big Mutha Truckers (PS2/XB) 'Too Rude' For TV

by Thomas on Oct. 7, 2002 @ 1:03 p.m. PDT

Empire's Trucking extravaganza Big Mutha Truckers has been deemed too rude to be shown before the 9PM TV watershed by the BACC. Bear in mind this is the same BACC that allowed a rather sexual beer ad which blatantly suggests fellatio from a vacuum cleaner for the robotic drinker. Yet again it seems to be either a case of games paranoia by the powers that be or simply the age-old problem of big blue chip companies not having to play by the same set of rules as the smaller companies.

Chris East Head of Marketing & PR for Empire Interactive Europe Limited screamed down the phone "It's outrageous, just because the name Big Mutha Truckers is a tenuous play on a' well known' phrase, we've been banned from doing a rather splendid TV ad. Although perhaps submitting the script with a truck running over an old lady's dog didn't help our case."

Big Mutha Truckers will be released on November 29th, probably after 21:00 hours when it won't pervert the nation.
