Yes, It Was the Best Supe Ad, But . . .

By Debbie Schlussel

. . . Does Audi know this is what we fear . . . and that a “green car” isn’t the panacea?  It’s part of the problem. Gotta love the tribute to Cheap Trick’s “Dream Police.” Watch more Green Police video here. And note that the green crowd loves this.  That’s what scares me. To them, it ain’t no joke. It’s the future.  Green has never felt so wrong.

You picked the wrong day to mess with the eco-system, Plastic Boy.

Didn’t see that one. Must have stepped out but that is good but sadly will be coming our way.

Apparently, Rush and some others think that the Audi ad is making fun of the green movement. I like to think I have a sense of humor, but, if they were, it went over my head.

After thinking about it, I think Rush is right (as usual). Still, the idea of buying an Audi to not get harassed by the wacky green police is, to say the least, unfunny.

R: While it makes fun of the green movement, it also joins it. That’s the message at the end. “Our car is green and will help you get by in a green-centric police state.” DS

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a more fuel efficient car. Who wants to pay more money at the pump than they have to? This is common sense. Unfortunately, the greenie weenies aren’t about fuel efficiency or even the environment, they’re about tyranny. The Audi commercial shows them for the meddlesome thugs they really are, whether Audi meant to or not.

    If we use less petroleum, the Saudis will pump less petroleum and keep the price high. They’ll keep ripping off the American middle class and funding the Jihad against America and the Jews.

    You might feel better using less petroleum, but you won’t be helping yourself or anyone else.

I guess those krautheads at Audi didn’t get the memo on how Copenhagen and global warming overall was a BIG DUD!

I’m partial to the A4 myself, though it may be a while before the 2.7 TDI arrives here. (Me, I’m still driving a very low mileage ’89 Prelude.)

I agree with Debbie. Though the ad mocks the “Green Police”, they seem to suggest it’s coming. I’m all for sensible environmental practice, but what’s portrayed should be called by its true name: eco-fascism.

Here in DC, rules against plastic grocery bags just went into effect. I resented the change as I *reused* those bags for garbage. Now what do I use? Oh, right… Now I have to *buy* heavier plastic bags marked “garbage”. Someone explain that to me.

And here’s another irony. The original plastic bags were made in the US. The “reusable” bags, which are less sanitary after only a few uses, are made in … China.

Yeah, I understand that the above won’t happen very soon, but if Climategate had not happened, just imagine what Al Gore’s Green Police would have looked like. I wouldn’t put anything past that POS Gore.

Great advertising is when a commercial is disjointed and/or shocking in someway that your mind keeps trying to mentally correct the image long after the 30 seconds are over. Audi did a good job because the viewer isn’t sure if it’s really tongue-in-cheek humor about the invasive green police or if the company is are on board with it. Which is it? I’d like to think the evolved human race sees the ‘Green Police’ as a satire, but sadly this joke looks to be on us if the elite have their way. CLJ.

Is that a styrofoam cup? Please step out of the vehicle.

It was all good, but Pete Townshend should have worn a different coat.

    It’s only somewhat amusing that the cop at the end is from Bridgeport, CT, yet another town with a phony “feel good” half-assed “recycling” program… pickup is once every two weeks (if they show up), and does not allow metals other than cans (i.e. no foil). It is also one special blue tub issued by the city. When we overflowed that and put bottles into a blue garbage can, they wouldn’t touch it. When we called the recycling center, we were told they would list us as a multi-family house and issue us another tub. So we have to scam the system “officially” just to be able to actually have recyclables picked up…and of course there is a bottle bill in CT also, so before pickup day bums roam the neighborhood digging through everyones’ tubs to find cans and bottles with deposits.

Have you ever noticed that individuals and factions generally partial to greater state control of economic life, have found the evidence for global warming to be quite compelling?

The best image was the slutty Playmate Kendra Wilkinson Crying cuz her husband didn’t win the Super Bowl.

As someone who is subjected on a daily basis to liberals who insist on being the “Green Police” in our home and neighborhood, I had a tough time laughing at the commercial. I understood the sort of tongue-in-cheek nature of the depiction of the green police in the ad, but honestly, I live and work with too many people who think that behavior is not only appropriate, but would like to see it enacted in law.

And as someone who owned an Audi, I say, “Save your money. Buy Japanese.” I wish I could say “Buy American” but, except for Ford, that would be throwing your money away too.
