Tim Blair has posted the Audi Super Bowl commercial...and it's disturbing in the fact that parody is way too close to reality. The underlying amusement, however, is that there will be a demographic of viewers out there that just don't understand the humor associated with the bit. The greenies will sit there "smileless" wondering when the humor will kick in.
Most folks will chuckle and realize that the commercial is there to sell the Audi clean diesel vehicle, and take home the indirect punchline that Audi is saying..."yeah...this whole green thing is a bit out of control, but here's our contribution to the trend...and remember us when you Green stormtroopers target major corporations...we're playing along."
HERE'S THE LINK TO BLAIR'S POST WITH THE VIDEO.
My favorite part is the music underneath...Cheap Trick's "Dream Police" is now Audi's "Green Police."
