Check out this commercial for Volkswagen:
I guess they left out the part where the truck driver swerves when startled by the car that’s cutting him off, causing a four-car accident. Or the part where the driver gets pulled over by a cop.
Coincidentally, this ad followed a report on NY1 about how new bike lanes were going to make 1st Avenue in Manatthan dangerous. Seriously? Bikes are making our streets dangerous?
Update, 7/29/10: As commenter Nicole pointed out, Volkswagen removed this ad from their YouTube page just a day after I posted it. Dozens of comments below the spot on YouTube complained that it encouraged reckless driving, and a campaign by truckers may have also led to its removal. Above is an alternate cut of the ad used by a local dealership in Pennsylvania. Hopefully, VW is pulling the ad from TV, too, for the same reason.
