I have been noticing a trend in recent car related commercials, Allstate Insurance and VW in particular. They seem to be showing car accidents in a far more violent manner. I just saw one where two guys are talking and they slam into the back of a truck. Airbags deployed, the two guys slammed their heads into them. Very graphic in my opinion, almost too much for a commercial in my mind. Now I know commercials are made so the watching audience will remember it, and i know there's much worse I tv that I could be complaining about. But since this seems like a recent phenomenon in the advertising industry, I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the trend as well.
