...and God can smite you better.

(click ad for closer look)
Like me, do you evilly laugh every time you see a Porsche disabled on the side of the road? It's really an unfair—though automatic—reaction to immediately think "prick" whenever we see one, isn't it? (In American auto ads, the car is usually the cock. $69 down!) Unfortunately, the dicky tone of the German car manufacturer's advertising does absolutely nothing to discourage that reaction. And frankly, if headlines like this one make you want a Porsche, you deserve all the micro-penis-douchebag thoughts directed your way, Helmut.
previously in auto ads:
1. Taylor Hicks for Ford: a review.
2. Car dealer ads are a gift from Satan.
3. Taglines are DUMB: NYC Auto Show edition.

Yeah, so this Porsche ad is blasphemous and worse yet, really bad, but what about the old 993 Turbo campaign? That's one of my favorite ads ever.

That Porche ad reminds me of the insufferable Dallas Cowboys saying that their stadium has a hole in the roof, "So God can watch the games."

More like so God can take a giant dump into that toilet.

Yeah, because, you know, driving your 89 Corolla means you really have a huge dick. Thou doth protest . . .

And yes, I do own a 987. You might want to feel what it is like to cut a line through the laws of physics at 137 miles an hour before you knock it. Might make you, I don't know, a wannabe prick?

I find it odd that someone that can stereotype people based on the car they drive feels that they have a leg to stand on when it comes to calling people pricks. To call someone a prick based solely on their choice of automobile is both stereotypical and an act that only a prick would lower themselves to performing. However, me calling YOU the prick is simply stating the plain obvious.

I'm sorry your can't seem to control your jealousy and feel the need to bash an entire group of people that have something that you do not.

Shouldn't a car like that pretty much sell itself?
