BMW + Mission Impossible = Two Sad Trends
1. Remember when the first time you learned about a new action movie coming out WASN'T when you saw it being used to sell some unrelated product on tv? I can't, either. A few years back, I first learned that The Lorax was going to be totally updated and bastardized through a Denny's ad. More recently, I learned that the Jurrasic Park franchise was going through a reboot through a Dairy Queen commercial. Are these movies made JUST to provide cross-promotion?
2. Check out the comments under this ad, if you dare. The level of brown-nosing is almost impressive. These guys are literally having orgasms over a car they know nothing about, will never own- hell, will probably never even test-drive. Why? Because you can actually pick up a little money squealing like a pig on YouTube comment sections, and shame went extinct decades ago.
