Ford mocks Cadillac ad

Cleverly and oddly... Ford mocks a Caddy commercial:
Ford Destroys Cadillac's Rich Guy Ad - Business Insider

__________________
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I still remember when Ford was whining about Nissan ads in my country a few years ago. There was even a lawsuit set due to an ad for the Versa which mocked the fact of the Focus with a 1.6L engine and a 5-speed manual transmission being more expensive than the Versa with the 1.8L and a 6-speed.

It's not like caddy missed their mark though. the elr costs twice as much as a volt or cmax energi, despite basically being a volt.

How about ...work, work, work, keep most of what you earn. People who don't work can keep what they earn, those who work, earn, and pay ALL the taxes can spend what's left over however they please....uh, it's called Freedom. When more people in a Democracy "take" than produce, the society WILL Die. Our dear leader wishes this on America, as he said in the beginning.

Aren't all Cadillacs just basically Chevrolets in fancy trim?
