Look at that F2? tornado (L) ripping through far-west midtown! Destructive tornadoes rip through Manhattan (Kansas) all the time. More realistic is the fire? earthquake? terrorist bomb? rubble, right. The new ads via the Office come hot on the heels of Hurricane Irene and our little east coast temblor two weeks ago. Very literal, these ads. It's to be expected when left-brained government cogs are the client. I'm sorry, that fake twister shot cracks me up. Why not a still from "Independence Day?"
