  • Subaru. Sanctimonious Or Sanctimonious?

    Disaster can come in twos.

    First, there was the sanctimonious Subaru commercial that covertly encourages you to buy one, drive recklessly and live forever.

    Of course, it doesn’t say that.

    Instead, you see several actors proclaim that after a nasty accident, though the Subaru still looked like a Subaru, only slightly uglier, the occupants “lived.”

    What sort of living state they were in isn’t made clear.

    But they didn’t die. So rejoice. And while you’re rejoicing, buy a Subaru. So you can live too.

    One can only imagine the reaction of a family whose loved ones died in, say, a Subaru.
