A women would be the cause of all this.... I knew someone who got in a car accident, so take ALL automobile adverts off the telly. Oh and my uncle died from cancer. So they must take all adverts for anything cancer/healthcare related. Shit rustles my ****.

It's not their responsibility to include a support line, in my opinion.

As someone who has battled for a very long time with anxiety and depression, I wasn't offended in the least by this ad; quite the opposite - I loved it. People are far too easy to offend, and the level of political correctness demanded by the offended is ridiculous.

Agreed, especially with that last sentence.

out of all people i would know depression too huh? i know it does, i are mind and brain genius. irrational thinking isnt an excuse for killing yourself though. to kill your own body your brain has to be broken. its completely illogical.
i bet he ****ed some other chick, and couldnt live with it, maybe someone raped him, or his mom, or his wife, or his kids, whatever it is, the rest of his family could deal with it and help him make it thru it. life offers a lot of things, more than god can offer you. theres no reason to be dead. its really anti productive IMO. out of all the days iv wanted to run and jump out my window i always said no because i knew il be fine, because this has happened before and in order for me to be in the same situation again i would have to had survived it before, so i can do it again and grow strong and get thru my problems. this man, and everyone else who kills themselves are pussies.


i was going to make a really long response to this. all's i'm going to say is yeah, you know you're gonna be fine, but the real question is how long's it gonna last when you are. it's gonna come again (in a lot of cases), and some people's experiences are unlike yours in the way that the feeling, whether it be guilt, hate, frustration, etc. can be beyond rationalization to the point of delusion.

etc. etc. etc.

I don't really know what demographic they're trying to appeal to.

They may have gone too far, but they have the right to. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a hater of freedom (and I mean this seriously).

Just posted a comment on the website where everyone is going crazy, I think it was pretty good and it wasn't trolling, so let's see what happens

I don't find this offensive personally, but I can see why some people would. My real question is.... Why would you try to sell your product by associating it with suicide? That just doesn't seem terribly brilliant.

If people get offended by adverts then they need to rethink their life.

If this were an advert based on most other topics, I'd agree. But basing a commercial off of suicide is a terrible decision. They should have known that people who have lost family members and close friends to suicide, even through that exact method, would see it. It's kind of like making a cancer joke in your commercial. It's clearly going to cause people pain. Whoever put the ad on the air was an asshole.

Maybe the woman was offended because the advert was showing a poor representation of America. The fact that the guy has a new Hyundai and is suicidal can only mean one thing, he could not afford to live in today's America with unemployment and so many cluster****s. So his only alternative was to take one last ride in his car but couldn't because the car does not emit dangerous fumes. So because of this, he has to deal with the tyranny that is America. So now he has to find another way to fail at his suicide attempts. Basically it's painting the picture that every new car owner cannot afford their car and will resort to suicide because of the country's downfall.

To be honest I'm a little drunk right now, and this is my drunk ass view on the whole thing.

People who get offended should be offended as frequently as possible.

And she wasn't "offended". She had a panic attack because it brought her back to the day she lost her father. There's a bit of a difference.

For fuck sake, the worlds panties are so tightly wound these days.
You don't hear the people who committed suicide complaining about the ad.
If you don't like it go suck a tit or something.
/ also pics please.
