Ford laughs at global warming.

(spot by Ogilvy Belgium) Yeah, I knooow we've been a little slooow with the whole "green" car thing. Sorry! We're still kinda sorta holding out for another surge of SUV buying. Anyhoo. We got this new Focus ECOnetic model (not available in the US of course!) that doesn't completely choke the fuck out of the planet. This is how we're advertising it to the Commie Euros (though the commercial was paid for with your bailout money, Americans!). Mini-cows! Mini-cow shit! Mini-cow farts! Aren't we hilarious?!? What? You didn't really expect us to do a serious eco-car commercial, did ya? By the way, what ever happened to Taylor fucking Hicks? Previous Ford ads: Introducing the Mustang/Tarantula hybrid. Retro: Alice in Endorsement Land.

No, it doesn't. Nor does make any sense the ranting posted below the video. Commercial paid for with American bailout money? Get the f... out of here! European ford (German, that is), on the contrary to your American one, manufacturers cars that are of good quality and that people want to buy!
And it is the other way around - for many many years the whole world was paying for your American 0% loans so you lived like kings on credit (you didn't think, I suppose, that banks were generously giving away money? They were earning much more on expensive loans in Europe, so they income in US was double covered).

But that is finally over.

They spelled useful incorrectly too. Did Tintin and Poirot leave with Belgium's only English dictionary?

in addition to the overall stupidity of the commercial and spelling useful incorrectly, the problem with cows isn't CO2, it's CH4, aka methane. methane is a much more potent greenhouse gas and that's why people care about cows as they relate to global climate change.

and what's with the picture of the car at the end? i thought the commercial was about new cows.
