So, I think the Acura NSA ad was the best.

I don't really care which ad was most controversial - except to inform figuring that the folks who draw attention by drumming up controversy (rather than excellence) are scam artists.

So, only Government Motors vehicles will be allowed to get through the entitlement zombie OWS mobs?

I thought the ad was a bit heavy handed. Plus I hate GM/Obama Regime so my opinion shouldn’t count. Too biased. .

What should be a Ford commercial: The chebby guys talking about Dave and his sorry Ford truck while eating each others Twinkies, then pan to an horizon shot with the Ford loaded with absolutely beautiful women hauling butt across the desert.

FORD and what it stands for (This is all meant as a Joke son.)

And as we all know, a joke needs a Lot or Little, of Truth, only you the reader, will know for sure.

Frequent Overall’s & Rapid Depreciation. :-)

Who would want to be safe in a world with 4 other guys and one of them a Twinkie.

How appropriate for a Government Motors ad: Hostess just went bankrupt; there won't be any Twinkies.

Ford ought to run basically the same commercial but add...”See? This is what happens when government gets too big and bails out ineffective companies—apocalypse.”

They should have played the audio of the Chrysler ad (halftime in America) while showing the video of the Chevy commercial.
It would have been PERFECT!

I actually found the ad to be the work of fruits.

None of these men thought to save a wife, daughter or mother, even though they had a planned meeting place.

Barry Manilow is playing in the background.

They’ve even got frogs, suitable for licking, raining from the skies.

I suppose they might run into a Chevy S-10 filled with downscale lesbians later.

Nice to know that Cuba should be doing okay after the apocalypse.

The TWINKIES, even the whole concept of the ‘end of the world’ and driving around in trucks, comes from the movie ZOMBIELAND.

In the movie, though, they were driving around in a HUMMER which had been stocked with a large quantity of weapons by “some rednecks”.

Ford needs to run an ad...start with a screen shot of the queers in chevy trucks munching twinkies, then move just down the road to a big group of guys in fords grilling steaks with dozens of hot babes.

Voice over...Party tonight guys, we will be the ones that have to clean this mess up.

I know Ford has to tread carefully, but I did get a kick out of something I saw last week regarding the ObamaMotors bailouts.

It was a documentary on Discovery or NatGeo about modern factories and featured the new (2004) F150 plant. A number of the line workers had nicely printed Tee-Shirts with the big blue oval and under it words to the effect of "Made with Zero tax dollars". Nice to see it dropped in there.

It looked like to me that it was supposed to reflect all of the varied "doomsday" movies that have come down the road. There were volcanoes, asteroid strikes, a giant mechanical monster, a crashed flying saucer, and all of the like.

The falling frogs at the end were a nice touch though ...

The falling frogs was at the end of the motion picture called Magnolia, staring a number of movie stars.

Are you sure that's correct? I read on The Truth About Cars dot com that the front end module is assembled at a non union supplier.

The commercial was funny!

I drive an old beater car amidst a lot of pick up trucks on my route to work, early morning, every work day.
They are mostly all F150s or F250s.
That I know the difference between two Ford models says it all.

Other than that, and color, I can identify vehicles as cars vs trucks vs vans and SUVs.

Yeah, the Obammy gestapo would be their panties in a bunch over that.

Better scene to pan too: Ford truck in background, “Dave” sitting in front of a campfire roasting marshmellows and saying to a group of Hooters quality gals, “well girls, looks like the chevys didn’t make it”. Of course, he would have a devilish grin on his face.
