  •  Well to be fair they do caption it as Fantasy (3+ / 0-)

    The ad has a tiny caption -- Fantasy Do Not Attempt.

    I'm more bothered by ads with obnoxious folks, I recall a luxury car ad run around Christmastime a few years ago where someone rolled a snowball that became huge and knocked their rival's car off the mountain.

    •  yes, I remember that one too... (0+ / 0-)

      cant;t stand that either, but then I hate ads for anything where the core of the commercial is bad behavior.

      •  Well I thought it was simply to jump over traffic (0+ / 0-)

        I've seen the ad so many times watching sports programs.  The funny thing is while I do find obnoxious behavior offensive, this ad didn't give off a-hole vibes.  To me it was fantasy as in gee I wish I could jump over the gridlocked traffic and to work quicker.  

        I gotta say living in Northern VA, I know all about being stuck in traffic and have wished for magic to avoid the traffic.  I do believe it was all of us who get stuck in traffic that the ad was meant to appeal to.

    •  I liked the talking pig ads (0+ / 0-)
