Genius marketing IMHO.
Agree, great job of viral marketing. I doubt they had any intention of having it air, and instead wanted it to go viral on Youtube. 13M views between the two top hits!

I bet you more companies will be doing risque commercials like that. Really, I'm sure whatever backlash they received is hugely outweighed by people who thought it was funny and creative.
