Quote of the Day

From SayUncle, about the controversial Green Police Ad that aired during the Super Bowl:

The commercial should have ended with a guy in a big ass Ford Earthfuckertm that gets 5 miles per gallon with seats made from baby seals blowing past the roadblock billowing smoke. And, for effect, the driver flips them off. I’d buy that car. Not this little compliant pansy car. You appeal to Americans in an ad by showing rebellion and general orneriness. Not passiveness, compliance, or sheepishness.

Makes me wonder if they used people back home in Germany for this ad. I mean, the same country did bring the world the Playmobil Police Checkpoint.

    Added Dennis Leary’s “I’m an Asshole” to my playlist in honor of that ad.

    Hey now, don’t knock Playmobil. It’s one of the few toys where the good guys have guns. Look up the Forest Lodge or Forest Truck. Tasty animals and guns. For every police checkpoint, there’s a Playmobil Safe Cracker and Jewel Thief!

    That’s hilarious. I’d totally drive an “Earthfucker.” : ) I consider myself pretty eco-friendly & I thought the ad was appalling–way to reinforce all the stereotypes of liberal over-regulation guys! Thanks, may I have another?

    For maximum impact though, they should have used the Dartz Prombron Monaco Red Diamond Edition, which comes with genuine “whale foreskin leather” seats. Really! That’s how to roll, baby!
