GM ad stupidly mocks poor, bike-riding college students.

(click ad)
This is an ad currently running in college newspapers across the country, according to Bike Portland. Bike boy's so embarrassed, he's covering his face from the hot car girl—hi-larious, GM! The taxpayer bailed-out company is apologizing their fat asses off on Twitter, saying they're going to change the sucky campaign. Via Ad Pulp.

People who are embarrassed to ride a bicycle... is that a large market?

I don't know — did you intend that to be a fat joke?

No, I didn't. But you make a good point. However, an ad selling cars to fat people should look very different.

FYI GM just announced they're pulling this ad after Lance Armstrong and some other bikers got made that it was putting down biking. Yay for one less piece of shit ad on the market!

I thought it was funny. Why get your panties all in a bunch by some fags saying your chosen method of transportation sucks? They're just mad driving cars doesn't make you healthier.

Anonymous #3, you're confused about the sexual orientation of people on bikes vs. people in minivans. I think you're in denial.
