Good2Go: This is turning into a series.....
Well, I don't feel bad about picking on these commercials, because the people in them are just so darned loathsome. Episode One featured the guy who couldn't pay for car insurance because he had to buy his (presumably living a distance away with his estranged ex) daughter a birthday present. Then we had the Stereotypical Unwed Mother dragging along two little kids who needed to take the bus everywhere because she had made the Tough But Correct and also Required by Law decision to feed her kids (what a superhero) instead of buying car insurance.
At least in Episode Three, we are picking on a white woman as the producer suddenly realizes that hey, even caucasians can be stupid and reckless asshats who neverthless breed (how else can they pass on the Stupid to the next generation and provide customers for Good2Go Car Insurance?) The woman in this ad is driving a nice car with a freaking child in the back but she doesn't have car insurance because....Reasons. I'm sure she has what she thinks are good reasons. But without knowing anything anything else about her, I can say with great conviction that no, no she does not.
Because think about this for just one more moment than the makers of the ad want you to- this is a woman who is carting a minor child around in her car without insurance. So if they get into a wreck and that girl is injured, Literally Criminally Stupid Mom can explain to her child why the immensely thoughtless idiot who gave birth to her can't pay for her physical therapy. "You see, honey, Mommy thought it would be ok to drive without car insurance because she would be really really careful and not get picked up by the police." I'm sure she'll understand.
And being the clueless, selfish jackwad she is, I'm sure this woman will walk away from this experience- after paying a hefty fine and having her license suspended- thinking how unfortunate she was to be picked up by that g-d d-mned cop who should have been off arresting REAL criminals. And wishing she had bought SortOf Insurance from Good2Go- it wouldn't have paid for any of her daughter's injuries, but it would have kept the G-d D-mned Fuzz off her back, and that's what it's all about, right?
