One of my favorite TV ads these days

Here's a description from MediaPost since I can't link directly to the video, and you don't want to see it anyway. Chevrolet launched a massive print, TV and online campaign to promote the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu. TV ads, running on prime-time network and cable television and during MLB playoffs, depict the Malibu as a car that can't be ignored. The first ad features a jogger crossing the street and running into a parked car. A 15-second version of the ad shows her persistence as she tries unsuccessfully to run through the car. "Soon, there will be a car you can't ignore," says the voiceover.

Why do I like it so much? I saw the ad the first time when it was on during Bionic Woman, and I thought it was the show, thus, I thought the Bionic Woman was running and slammed into a car. I laughed hysterically. And still get a good laugh thinking of it, partly laughing at myself. Stupid humor. Gotta love it. Though if I hadn't associated it with the Bionic Woman, I'm not sure how much I would have liked the ad.

I like their other one with the bank robbers getting away because the police ran right past the getaway car.

It would have made me laugh if I thought it was part of a t.v. show, too;>

I haven't seen it and I don't think I will but I still found the story funny.

I run into things all the time like on those commercials. I like to refer to it as "headuptheass-itis"
