GRRAARRRGGGHH. My disdain for America has grown considerably. I cannot stand, absolutely cannot stand the whitewashing, plain-polishing this country is receiving. Here are the two newest chunks of hatred added to my fire:
- Guy Ritchie, director of such entertaining movies as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and BMW’s The Hire, directed a cute commercial for the upcoming Corvette. It shows a young boy dreaming about the car, flying (literally flying) it across playgrounds, schools, etc and then driving spiritedly through a downtown environment. It is obviously not realistic as the car flies, does a 360 through a drainage pipe, etc. Seven different groups have protested the commercial explaining that the commercial encourages children to recklessly drive cars. AutoWeek and Nabisco complained about the complainers. You can see the commercial here.
- I don’t even want to talk about this one. Teachers are now using purple ink instead of red ink when correcting homework because red is “scary”.
People, do me a favor and die in a fire.
