Another commercial I saw had a very similar message. I didn’t even catch the brand that was advertised. But the message was identical. In that spot, the dad used a home automation system to play with the blinds in his daughter’s room and other tricks. Again to prevent her from kissing her boyfriend.
So I am like, what the fuck. Is this behavior becoming the new norm in this country or what? Holy fuck. Whoever did those commercials, or approved them, or has them attached to the brand now, doesn’t realize how sick this is? I mean, come on. The teenagers in those spots were like real people.

If I had both the money to afford a Tesla Model X, and if Tesla cars did not have such poorly designed interior with such an oversized and non-integrated iPad kind of thing I’d sure buy one. For now I just keep my fingers crossed my current Volvo Diesel keeps going for another 2-3 years until I can buy an affordable all electric SUV. Yes, I know it’s not ideal keeping the Diesel powered Volvo running for another 2-3 years. But paying one of the traditional car makers, including Volvo, for another fossil fuel powered car would be the wrong message to these guys.
