Possibly the best car ad you will ever see 

Tip o' the tricorner hat to Dodge for this masterpiece. Almost makes me want to own another Dodge. Almost.

Candidly, it's more than a little surprising that Dodge's Obama administration overlords signed off on this one...*

*Yes, that was a joke. Goddamn.

Not really. Obama has had a hate on for the Brits all his life (read Dreams from My Imaginary Father).

Nice ad, but I won't be buying from Government Motors. I'm making a fat contribution to those worthless bums on the 15th, tax quarterlies.

I doubt George Washington would have many kind words for guys running GM or Chrysler.

I would think that we would all be better served if the imaginary Founding fathers were driving their Dodge Challenger assault vehicles directly up Pennsylvania Avenue!

That's where the real threat lives.

Where in the 13 original colonies is this meant to be? Looks like west of the Great Plains to me. Maybe Louis and Clark should have been running down the Shoshone behind the wheel of that Dodge.

Ha. The USA does freedom well (less so lately) and cars horribly, the design of the Charger, Challenger, and Camaro (and F-Series trucks) being one highlight of otherwise horrible management and labor practices; I'd cling to the flag, too, GM/UAW, if I were as desperately bad at cars; Porche, BMW, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and even Subaru, are handing you your heads up and down the line ... and what exactly is free about government ownership AND unionized labor (however one's view of it's legitimacy and effectiveness)? Better check the guy driving the car in the commercial, I think it's Alger Hiss in disguise.

"Here are a couple things America got right"

Is it just me or do others think the way he said it implied that we got most things wrong?

anonymous is correct. jun13 0821. since it is NOW gov motors, just like the o in the oral office it is implied that we got ALL things wrong.

Agree with last two anonymous. "For the first time in my life I am PROUD of our muscle cars!"

I can't help but think of very small dicks when I see that ad.

they have another ad proclaiming how not gay their cars are too... hmmm

Huh. I took it the opposite way anonymous x2 did, after being told how much we got wrong, well, atleast we got freedom right.

I suspect I'm wrong, though, because two more years of The Won will pretty much make freedom a memory.
