Green Police Ad: More terrifying than funny

I sort of watched the Super Bowl yesterday, but I did happen to be watching when the advertisement below was aired. It is an ad for some sort of bio-diesel car by Audi, but the Green Police that the Audi driver is able to circumvent due to his choice of car made my palms sweat because as comedy-driven as the ad is supposed to be, make no mistake that what the Green Police does in this ad is an environmentalist's wet dream.

As you watch this supposedly humorous ad, ask yourself if it is really that far-fetched:

Between federal Cap and Trade legislation; California's own Cap and Trade, known as AB 32; Congress banning incandescent light bulbs in 2014; and especially high-ranking enviro-wackos calling for man-made global warming skeptics to be fired or tried Nuremberg-style, I have to say that this ad seems more reality than fantasy, and that scares the hell out of me.

Good Day to You, Sir

Foreshadowing makes it dark humor.

Check out the scifi novel Fallen Angels by Larry Niven and Michael Flynn. It looks like this ad was lifted right from its pages!

Let's hope this ad circulates on the web forever. What's funny at first, is just a prelude to what is coming. In the thirties, people used to make fun of Hitler in the way he and his followers dressed, acted,and spoke. Then, the war came, and it wasn't funny any more. There is more to this ad than meets the funny bone.

I'll have to agree with you on this one. Scary stuff and not even remotely amusing.
