The other night we were watching TV, and a commercial grabbed my attention. This is a normal occurrence in our home. I see a commercial, and then I proceed to chatter about how I don't get it or it's lame or what was that company thinkin'?
In this particular commercial there was a polar bear, and he looked cute and cuddly. Now in actuality you know polar bears aren't cute and cuddly. They're BEARS, for Pete's sake. I think he was meant to look cute and cuddly, though, to tug at your heart strings.
He (the bear) proceeded to swim an ocean, walk through the woods, wander down a highway... (and at this point I started to wonder, What's this all about? Some sort of global warming message?)
Oh, am I onto these "green" people or what?
The bear eventually ends up in suburbia, and proceeds to walk up to a man standing in his driveway next to his new 2010 Nissan Leaf and gives him a big hug for saving his habitat from global warming with the purchase of his electric vehicle. (And aforementioned vehicle only has an MSRP of $32,780, which every American could surely afford.)
Puh-leeeeease. Stop with the propaganda, people. Your heartfelt commercial with the sweet, huggy polar bear doesn't convince me. I'm not buying an electric car.
What's up with that?!?
