    Best car ad in a while for sure. Too bad it was pulled. They could run that during the Super Bowl here!

    Gotta love Aussie humor. We're too uptight in the US for that to play here.

    I get the sexual undertones of the ad but incest? Am I missing something? :eek:

    I guess the dad jumping at the end meant that he wanted to hump his daughter.

    I'm still not seeing it. I think the people that complain about ads like this are the ones that are messed up.

    Really? Whoever considered the incestuous has something wrong in their childhood.

    Ads

    It seems that the most far-reaching and effective ads today are the ones that DON'T air.

    It depends on the point of view you're taking. As a well-adjusted, mature adult, maybe you can handle it. You have to consider the state of mind, maturity level, age, etc. of everybody, not just those who are "like" you.

    Take product recalls for example. The recent thing about the cords on window shades is kind of silly to those who understand the danger they could pose to small children, and take appropriate, effective precautions. Or think about any number of household chemicals that could harm children or mentally challenged adults. In the old days, there was no such thing as a "childproof" cap. Responsible adults had to take appropriate precautions. Now safeguards are mandated by the government, not to protect those who don't need it, but those who do. The latter are distinctly in the minority.

    Oh, the classic, "think of the children" cry. Yes, children will see this ad, decide that they have to go out and have sex right away. It is that dangerous for immature minds, sure...

    I found it to be extremely hilarious! I really cannot see how people can get offended by advertisements like these.
