Another take on this awful Buick commercial
In another version of this ad,* we see the spoiled Suburban princess actually spying on the Garcias using a pair of binoculars as she drools over their new Buick- "Looks like the Garcias have a new car."
"Good for the him" her husband intones.
"Good for her" she replies. Yeah, because living in this f---ing palace with freaking gold gates isn't good enough for you- now you want a new Buick, too. I know that everyone in TV land lives like this- but why does every commercial have to pretend that everyone in REAL LIFE occupies massive palaces in gated communities?
The Garcias live in a gilded cage- good for them. Both of them. Except, they have neighbors who stand at their windows and evaluate them through binoculars. I'm not sure it's worth it.
*When I find the "Good For Her" version of this ad on YouTube, I'll replace it here. But you've all seen it.
