Did you know you're not allowed to show people on TV not wearing seat belts? Okay, I'm not sure if that's true. But this is a screen shot from the Herbie DVD commercial. In the actual movie, there are no seat belts visible. What you see here are virtual seat belts, digitally added just for the TV commercial. So it's okay to make a scene in a G-rated Disney movie with characters not wearing seat belts, but it's not okay to show it on TV? Even in clips so brief that only a total nutcase would ever notice?
Note also Lindsay Lohan's digitally blanked cap, which sports a Goodyear logo in the film. Wonder what made all these alterations necessary?
