Thanks for posting that Robert...I couldn't find it anywhere and it was easier to show the ad than describe it.

The ad that ran last night during the World Series was only the second half of the video you posted...last 30 seconds...guess they couldn't afford to pay for a 1 minute World Series spot so they trimmed it down to 30 seconds.

Darin...my reaction exactly. I even said out loud..."What was that?" Bizarre.

It makes a little more sense when viewed in context, though... they're not referring to FE at all, they're referring to the unrelenting, unending pursuit of whatever the next job brings.

"I will not yield, I will not downshift, I will not coast to a stop." "My name is Ram, and my tank is full..." is more like saying "No matter what adverse conditions I come across, I will remember that I can keep going. I will keep going."

It's psychological advertising at it's best, honestly.

Agreed, topher. "I will not coast to a stop" could be taken to mean "I may be a dinosaur company building outdated products, but gosh darn it, we're going to keep right on doing what we've always been doing until someone disconnects the power and padlocks the factory doors !"

Metro "bragging about guzzling"

I was at a cruise-in and some doof was bragging about getting 7 mpg with his hot rod Chevelle. I looked at him and said something along the lines of "and you're proud of that?".

Must have been the first time somebody questioned the stupidity of that claim, as he looked at me and didn't know what to say.

LOLZ!
