Doc Batarang: Fuggin Bizzy: I'm glad he included the Bob Dylan Chrysler commercial from the Superb Owl. That one left me wondering "What the fark, over?" the first time I saw it.

"What's more American...than America?" TAUTOLOGIES, that's what.

Tautologies are Greek.


Tauntaun's are Hothian.

I would love to see someone do a remake of the Cadillac commercial set in Europe. The owner could go on about how wonderful the car and his life is, then finish with the line, "...and I get four weeks vacation."

From the ad with the creepy psycho dude from Justified: "We went to the moon and you know what we got? Bored. So we left. We left a car up there with the keys in it because we're the only ones going back up there."

akula: doubled99: Patriotic pride denotes ignorance-unless it's another country than this one.

Makes you wonder if the asshole who wrote TFA also freaks out when Volkswagen touts their "German engineering" or when Fiat talks about "Italian style."


Both of those have to do with the actual car. "German engineering" implies that it is a safe and well-built vehicle, while "Italian style" implies that the car is artistic and luxurious. All this commercial sells is US arrogance; it's message is "yeah you're an asshole who thinks nobody with less money than you works hard and that furners are spineless whiny cretins! This is a car for assholes like that!! Buy it you farking asshole piece of shiat goddamn it BUY THE CAAAR!".

Not only is it not selling the car, it's not selling the car buy selling smug, privileged condescension with the face of an actor best known for playing a murderous, torturing-fetishist and child molester. So basically, it hit all the marks it needed to hit to sell this to their target demo; petty-rich Conservatives who like to think they're richer than they are, and that they matter.

Well, it goes real slow with the hammer down,
It's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown!

Canyonero! (Yah!) Canyonero!

I expected The Onion from subby's headline.

Oh, and midway through the writer's "thousand words so I get paid today" article I spotted a key joke. How do you spot a Libertarian? Don't worry, they'll tell you.

Young people don't want to hear about American exceptionalism because they're afraid it means they're going to have to work at some point to maintain it.
