Did anyone catch the news (I won’t be surprised if you didn’t. I was lucky enough not to blink between shots of Anna Nicole Smith, Anna Nicole Smith’s house, and an expose on “Who Is Howard K Stern?”) about the GM Super Bowl ad where the robot loses its job and commits suicide?
GM is Asked to Pull Their Ad
I thought it was pretty hilarious that people are up in arms about this. I saw one lady that was crying and saying that when she saw the ad, she had to relive the terrible experience she had when her son committed suicide, and that she “had to relive it over and over again since I saw that ad. I can’t stop thinking about it.”
So how much will it cost GM to get that memory out of your head, lady?
What I don’t understand is where the excuse to sue is, here. I mean, I was traumatized when my ex-girlfriend started her period during sex, but you don’t see me threatening to sue Playtex for talking about menstruation on television…
For god’s sake, folks. “Politically Correct” is getting out of hand.
