We Will We Will Sue You


Good luck trying to convince your insurance company that the flashy TV commercial and cool music strongly implied that it would be perfectly safe to pass that giant truck with no hands on the wheel (and, while we're at it, singing instead of paying attention to what is going on around you.)

Hopefully you won't have to try the same explanation/alibi on any grieving parents; they probably won't buy your "but the glowing screen said it was OK plus I love Queen plus its so fun to use alleged safety devices to show off" protestations as they bury their loved ones, victims of your overbearing entitlement. 

Seriously, this is a great commercial if the point is to convince people to take the freaking train and stay off the highways.

  1. I just shake my head every time I see this ad. Why would anyone feel the desire to take their hands entirely off of a steering wheel while driving? I mean, what does it buy you? Just pull off to the side of the road for a minute if you really can't resist the urge to play patty-cake with your kid or feel up your girl/boyfriend? I just don't get the advantage of a feature like this. You're pretty much stuck behind the steering wheel until you get where you're going anyway. Isn't it actually just as comfortable or more so to keep your hands on the wheel?
