    :mamoru: I still remember when they blew millions of dollars digitally lenghtening Ciny Crawford's skirt in a Cadillac commercial after a GM board member's wife complained :ugh2:

    If they were to pull any ad I thought it would be that Saturn PacMan one where the Saturn SUV just runs over people and they magically appear inside the vehicle.

    It was so much better than those SHITTY dodge magnum ads where the dude is dreaming of driving slightly vigorously. Nobody wants to see pointdexter fagwad driving according to the laws set down by THE MAN. We want to see tire-shredding motorized MAYHEM dammit!

    So gay. Parents need to learn to raise their kids right and not blame everything their kids do wrong on commercials.

    The only parents bad enough to possibly have their children affected by this are Miss Kitty and Black Light :o

    From today's AutoExtremist,

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Consumers Union, Public Citizen, Center for Auto Safety, Consumer Federation of America and Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety.

    As much as we didn't like the Corvette commercial for the reasons stated above, the fact that GM is pulling the commercial because of protests by seven safety groups is absolutely ridiculous.

    The groups complained that it was "the most dangerous" spot they have seen in recent years, according to a Reuters report. The groups, part of the virulent anti-car, anti-Detroit intelligentsia, sent a joint letter to GM chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner, decrying that the ad "...is certainly among the most dangerous, anti-safety messages to be aired on national television in recent years." The letter also said that "It is doubtful that General Motors would condone the beer industry showing a 'dream sequence' of 10-year-old children having an after-school 'kegger.'"

    We thought the commercial lacked substance and a creative idea befitting the stature of the Corvette, but it's also clearly a fantasy. The fact that these vermin - who hide behind the premise of protecting all of us for our own good and who actively promote the concept of "no accountability," suggesting that ultimately, no driver is responsible for his or her actions when behind the wheel, but instead that the automakers are always to blame - would crawl out of the woodwork and force GM to pull the spot is unconscionable.

    GM should pull the spot because it fails to do the car justice - not because of the bleatings of a bunch of crackpot safety groups, who conveniently hide behind the notion of "the common good" but who do nothing to positively contribute to the debate.

    Shutup, it's just a damn commercial.

    They're covering their asses because some dipshit Mother is going to use the ad as the reason her son/daughter crashed their car.

    They wimped out. Kids don't drive cars becuase thye watched a commercial. They do it becuase parents leave their kids in the front seat of a running automobile.
