What about a boulder, deer, dog, falling limb or any other natural occurance instead of a malicious biker?

Default Re: Insulting Volvo SUV Ad

Well I drive a Volvo AND I'm a motorcyclist. I sent them a nasty note about the ad and mentioned that my wife and I have been Volvo owners for some time (though we certainly don't drive like most of the MO crew seems to think Volvo owners drive!) and we had been thinking of buying a new Volvo but are now reconsidering based on that ad.



My wife pointed the ad out to me - she's a motorcyclist as well, not "just" a pillion. Like most here I was pretty shocked and surprised. They should have shown the soccer Mom in the mini van chatting merrily away on her cell phone while she swerves over the center line into oncoming traffic. THOSE folks are the real way to test your safety features!

Default I feel so victimized...

I don't know about the rest of you, but I feel violated. I feel like Volvo took their new anti-roll system and rammed it right up my tailpipe, without even buying me dinner first.



I intend to start a class-action suit against Volvo---right after I win my current suits against Ben and Jerry for making me fat, and against my chaps manufacturer for making me look like a member of the Village People.



If you'd like to participate in the Volvo class-action suit, please send email describing your mental anguish, reduced sex drive, and irregular bowel movements to:

Lexus already beat them to the punch by demonstrating the RX300 avoiding falling water jugs.

In the words of my favorite victim:

"Wha, wha, why ka, ka, ca, can't we all jest git along?"



Seriously folks, your energy would be better spent railing against the aforemention idiot squids at your local roadhouse instead of ogling at their latest go-fast toys. Dealing with the core of the problem instead of whining about your sensibilities being ruffled is in my humble non-politically correct opinion the way to go. Just ask President Bush.

BMW used a bicycle.

GMC (or Chevy) had all kinds of crap hitting the road in front of the plucky SUV driver. Apparently SUV drivers worry a lot about hitting things in the road, as you don't see ads like these for sports cars, which could do a much better job of evasion.
