The Good Hands, Bad Taste People, Round 2.

(click ad, scanned from The Atlantic) Maybe, Allstate, this was not the appropriate ad from your cutesy illustration print campaign to run this month, what with the American flying public a bit antsy after the boom-boom attempt by the pantsy bomber. But maybe, that's exactly why you ran it now—to get more people the hell out of the skies and onto the roads. Terror Marketing! Either way, this scene of scores of people boarding multiple planes which we can assume by your headline will all soon be crashing in fireballs is a bit fucking tacky, even for a heartless insurance behemoth. Previously: The Good Hands, Bad Taste People, Round 1.

Tacky? I don't see that. In fact, I read it as saying that the ignoring of a major problem by State governments is "tacky."

This must be a companion piece to the RADD PSA voiced by Ryan Seacrest in which he talks about two 747's crashing every week...

The funny thing is that each year, over twice as many people age 55+ die in car accidents.
