Wide-Open Country Roads

Via Richard Layman, take a look at this Audi TV spot:



Yes, I get it - they're a car company and they are trying to sell cars.

But look a little more closely... first they show a packed bus with two bikes on the front, then they show a person riding a bike in awful rainy weather, and finally they show a city street so crowded with pedestrians that the person on the segway can barely navigate. Seems like urban congestion is pretty frustrating, huh? I guess if you buy an Audi, your commute to the busy urban center gets replaced with a drive on beautiful, empty, country roads?

It's sure a nice dream to have, but it's only a dream. I can't wait for the day that a car commercial shows anything close to the reality of a daily auto commute.
