Pillow Fight Too Violent for Canada?

Neatorama reader photosapience told us about this banned ad showing Toronto Blue Jays slugger Frank Thomas pillow fighting with his kid.

The Television Bureau of Canada pulled the ad (no reason given, may be too violent?). See if you agree: Link - Thanks photosapience!

I work in the Canadian advertising industry and I can tell you from experience the CRTC is mental. I once had a video game commercial almost banned because there was a 1/2 second shot of a character hitting another character with a snowball. Yes apparently we Canadians consider snowballs deadly weapons

I saw it last night - not pulled completely. Maybe not such a big deal after all.
I thought it was kinda dumb. Maybe a little too strong, but violent? Maybe they should have just shown a grown man being hit in the genitals - that seems to be okay for kids' movies.
