I’ve seen a lot of idiotic commercials on television–the Cialis bath tubs, for example–but a recent commercial makes me worry. Perhaps we shouldn’t allow people who believe they can do whatever is done on television to ever leave their homes. Ever.
The one I’m talking about is an automobile commercial in which the driver zooms up a ramp. The speed and angle of the car allow it to become airborne. It lands on the top of a train. A warning at the bottom of the screen says, “Fantasy. Do not try this.” If that’s not enough, the next warning reads: “Fantasy. Do not try this. Cars cannot land on trains.” Do people really not know this? Again, if they don’t, they should not be allowed out on the street on foot or in any kind of vehicle.
What’s the most absurd commercial you’ve seen? I’d like to know.
Also, as I searched for a picture, I couldn’t find one of a car on top of a train. That lack tells me that, really, people seem to know this is not true. All I could find is a car INSIDE a train (above) which, I’m fairly sure is fantasy as well but it was the best I could do.
