Skip to comments.Obama's America - in a Superbowl Ad.
Posted on 02/07/2010 7:32:05 PM PST by conimbricenses
Is it just me, or does this Audi "Green Police" ad succinctly summarize Obama's dream for America? It's a perfect melding of enviro-soviets and police state fascism.
That ad really ticked me off. I was ranting about it for like 10 minutes.
I thought it made a lot of fun of the fascistic tactics of the Green movement, but appeared to say they were okay.
Too realistic. Made my stomach turn.
That among other things.
This made me want to buy a truck powered by baby seals.
Eco-cops coming ... hated that commercial .... best was those E-Trade babies .....
They were lauding a fascist police state.
I think people dislike the Audi ad because it doesn’t fit into their worldview. I hate using a lib term, but there it is . . . if you were offended by the Audi ad, the parody went over your head, and you concentrated on its appeal to the “smug factor” over the parody that exists.
All that ad made me want to do is to expend rounds of hi-caliber ammunition.
just where are all those green jobs?
It was a bust. Everyone at my party said it was the wrong message and done badly. Definitely the worst commercial from a list of pretty good S.B. comml’s overall.
Wait...what?...where I can I get a baby seal powered truck?! I want one!
1. Even if the story was meant to be absurd, the commercial was plainly supportive of an environmentalist message, as shown by them waving the silly "green diesel" Obamamobile through.
2. There is nothing even remotely "humorous" about innocent people being harassed, roughed up, physically thrown about, and terrorized in their homes by a government police force, so even as "parody" it was a poor one.
3. Though it purported to show an absurd extreme, the commercial was actually so close to the reality desired by the environmental communist wack jobs that all intended parody effect was lost.
And just read the stories out of Britain where they actually do have environmental police forces that ticket people who don't sort their garbage for mandatory recycling and that spy on homes suspected of having too many televisions or large appliances.
That commercial was obscene.
I told Mrs. Doomonyou, Welcome to the obamanation.
Yup. Dear "Green Police" - say hello to Mr. Second Amendment.
In which case a parody ad airing during the Super Bowl just might be the most effective antidote.
Really disgusting. Their diesel technology is good but Audi cars are incredibly overrated. Enjoy when they break and you have to pay for repairs and parts.
Commercial was a FAIL.
Exactly. After the initial revulsion wore off, my first instinct was a pressing desire to go start a garbage fire out back and intentionally increase my carbon footprint.
What was the point of that ad? I just laughed and thought it made them look silly. Also thought it pointed out what control freaks those greenies really are.
It played like some sorta leftie wet dream. Awful.
...except for the fact that the ad plainly gave its endorsement to the environmental wacko movement at the end when the smiling Audi Obamamobile driver is waved through the checkpoint.
Ads that simply repeat and endorse the absurdities of reality are not parody. They are a continuation of that absurd reality.
The ad was tongue in cheek, but defined the world Obama and his facist followers yearn for, complete control over our every move. Make no mistake about it, America, the Obama control police are birthing right now!!! Only, you, the American voter can stop him. because very soon, he will take away your right to vote!!!
Nope, I don’t see it. A parody does not evaporate when a “contrary” alternative is presented (in this case, a driver being waved through a checkpoint with an ANTEATER sniffing autos).
Audi’s website lauds the real ‘green police’. No parody was intended.
Without going out on a limb here, I will wager that Audi’s website lauds Audi. For the purpose of selling Audi automobiles.
Yep. WAY too close to their desired reality. And it is a reality for the environmentalist Nazis - especially in Britain but it's coming here to America too.
My folks live on several acres of land on the edge of suburbia about 30 miles out of a big city in what is one of the reddest of red states - same house for about 20 years. Part of the acreage is wooded so they get a lot of brush on their property, and as long as they've lived there my dad would gather it up with his tractor and put it in a burn pile. He always did it in a perfectly safe and controlled way, never burned when there were drought conditions etc.
That all came to an abrupt end a couple months ago when he was burning one day and the police showed up on the front door. Apparently their county was included in some new regional emissions reduction scheme by the EPA, and it imposed regulations against private citizens from burning stuff on their own property. And the local cops had been tasked with enforcing it. They told him if he did it again he'd be subject to a fine.
What can I say? Some people are just dense.
Until the Audi showed up, I thought it was going to be a TEA Party Ad!
Self-realization is the first step to true enlightenment.
I’ve heard about such laws over the past few years. Here in Md., I don’t think I’ve seen anyone burn anything on their own property in decades. Raking the leaves and then burning them is one of the fun remembrances of my teenage years here.
That's exactly it. And I hate to say it (especially as one who voted for the guy twice), but all those new federal law enforcement agencies Bush created and all the expansive powers he gave them in the name of "national security" are going to be the tools Obama uses to implement his control state. That's why growing the government is NEVER a good thing - even if it seems to serve a noble purpose such as "homeland security." All it takes is for a thug like Obama to get elected and he has every tool he ever dreamed of at his immediate disposal.
Agreed. I guess Audi thought the ad was pretty cool. But me, it chilled me throughout - a look into the Messiah’s future.
Audi is a company from Germany, the country which presented the world with their Fuhrer. Now, Audi endorses ads for America’s Super Bowl, painting the landscape of America’s Fuhrer.
Audi is just telling it like it is.
And what really galls me is that it's all premised on a scientific hoax!
I live in suburbia myself now, and I suspect there's probably similar regulations in place here too. One trick I use to get around it (as do several of my neighbors) is the installation of one of those outdoor fireplaces they sell at Wal-Mart or Home Depot. My yard is small enough that it can handle the sticks and brush, and the fireplace flies under the EPA nazi radar...at least for now.
they are desensitizing us to the future reality.
Then plainly you have yet to begin your journey.
best ad in the superbowl (which ain’t sayin’ much) but it really brought home what the green people would do if they had the power. It definitely did not serve the purpose that was intended, which I suppose was that if you bought some stupid car, all would be well. I’m saving it to show my husband who boycotted the second half.
Let us know when you start packing.
Scary thing is in Britain they actually do have cases of the government digging through peoples' trash and fining them for not sorting recyclables - just like the cops on that ad.
The whole thing makes me want to vomit. And then go chuck the old car battery out behind my shed into the nearest EPA-protected "wetland" - code word for what used to be called a stinky old swamp/garbage dump a few decades ago.
I agree with most... I hoped it would end with a plea for sanity. Instead, it ended with, “Here’s how you can be one of ‘them.’” Nothing about the ad made me want to buy an Audi. And I can’t really imagine the ad appealing to the green-freaks either.
Uh, both myself and a friend who is County Sheriff’s Sargent thought this ad was a brilliantly accurate depiction of what the Obamunist fascist regime would like to lead us to.
We both thought this was a terrible ad for Audi, since large numbers of people like ourselves would associate Audi with fascists.
I suppose this ad was meant to be funny. Quite frankly, I found it to be prescient and frighteningly chilling.
"Us" rudeboy? There is no "us," unless you are one of those weirdos who refers to himself in plural. There is only "you," and "you" are plainly delusional to the point that you stand alone in your bizarre interpretation of this thread. And that leads me to conclude one of two things about you:
1) You're simply the type of personality that goes around looking for conflict over minute in trivial matters without realizing that it generally makes you off-putting to everyone around you, and might explain why you have very few friends and supporters
2) You drive an Audi.
Unless you want you make yourself appear like the "Green Police" in an Audi ad, that is.
