confused Saab Ad

Last night on TV i saw an ad for the new Saab 9-3. I dunno how many of you people have seen it, but I think that it shows dangerous driving. Whats goin on? How come Saab can show one of their cars skidding and swerving all over the road, whilst Ford gets in trouble because of showing Escapes playing soccer on the beach???

Speed

4 out of 5 car accidents on beaches have speed as an attributing factor. 1 out of 5 are attributed to playing soccer.
The other dozen are attributed to failing suspension due to rust.

Blackspots are always found at the bottom of hills, and on long straight roads.

A Sports car doing 135 on a motorway is more dangerous than a light truck with shot suspension doing 100 on a whinding country road, in the wet.

Saab pays import tax to our beloved government. Ford, do not.


I dunno

I bought this up in a different thread somewhere. But that's just bull crap.
