Bus Association doesn’t the Priceline ad…
No matter what you do, you’re going to piss off someone or something. Now, that recent Priceline ad that kills of the Priceline character via a bus explosion, has rubbed a certain organization the wrong way.
From CNN, ((The American Bus Association is asking that Priceline pull an ad that shows its longtime spokesman William Shatner dying in a fiery bus explosion, saying that it believes the ad is in bad taste.))
Uh, if we use this form of logic, then this ad and Star Trek Generations should offend bridge builders because Shatner died in both of these scenes falling off a bridge. Is it really in poor taste? I thought it was rather funny, but the funniest part is Shatner cutting off the Priceline Negotiator theme song.
Every group has to be offended by something I guess.
From CNN, ((Group spokesman Dan Ronan concedes that he doubts any potential customers will be afraid to take the bus after seeing the spot, but said "it portrays the industry in a bad light. We're protecting our brand and our reputation."))
Then I guess you all really didn’t Speed either or that Rosie O’Donnell bus movie either. Okay, I hated that Rosie bus movie, but come on. Bus crashes portray the industry in a bad light not an ad by TJ Hooker himself.
Your group should be offended by this…
Why is Rosie so over the top? I'm sorry, but Shatner is better actor than Rosie.
