Oh, the irony.
I'm not sure what I like most about this commercial.
Is it the fact that the dealership looks to increase its profits by poking fun at a movement whose members have called for the death of capitalism?
Or is it the impression (0:08 mark) that lampoons the well-documented hostility of the occupiers towards members of the media?
Personally? I love the the fact that the car dealership is using a movement which, I think, is anti-capitalism (among several other things . . . I'm not really sure what they are protesting against).
That really is the best thing about this commercial. It uses the imagery and platitudes of the Occupy movement to generate profit from the same economic system the protesters want abolished.
You know who else wanted to abolish capitalism but has had his image used to generate profits from clueless college students who want to look like edgy social revolutionaries?
Yeah, this guy. The same guy who said:
. . . how terrible these capitalist octopuses are. I have sworn before a picture of the old and mourned comrade Stalin that I won't rest until I see these capitalist octopuses annihilated.
Hey! University kid who wants to "honor" Che's memory with your Hot Topic fashion sense!
You know that's the same thing as eating a whole case of White Castle sliders to honor Gandhi's memory, right?* Just letting you know.
Oh, the irony. The sweet, wonderful irony.
*Not that I would ever do that. I like Gandhi and hate sliders.
