Creeps & weirdos GM ad against transit

    Newer Older

    This controversial ad ran in a Vancouver, BC alternative newspaper. It was withdrawn after the outcry from transit activists.

    So Cal Metro, kootenayvolcano, and 14 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Not a big surprise. Hire some kid from the burns or country that went to college for PR or marketing and this is the kind of stupid fearmongering ad you end up with. Plays great to Palin voters.

      Nasty ad. Figures it is a crappy car as well that only gets 25mpg.

      funny that the picture is also of what looks like a trolley must die to be reborn...

      I'm confident this isn't a trolley bus, though there are trolley lines overhead. Believe me, I know buses. The box on top implies that it's a hybrid bus, though.

      Amazing. I can't wait to show this to more people so that they will never buy a GM.

      Because no creep or weirdo ever got behind the wheel of a car!

      Amazing! I'm especially surprised that this would run in a transit-friendly Canadian city? Thanks for posting.
