There must be something lost in translation here. You'll be robbed - or you'll be doing the robbing? And either way, why's the guy's hand held out...?

I don't get it.

Hidden meaning - price of gas robs folks, this car is easy on the pocketbook (high MPG). Not obvious enough, but a good start.

who's robbing who here? this makes nooooooo sense. They've robbed me of the 10 seconds it took to look at this ad.

this ad makes me think more about the ridiculous price of gas than the actual car.

I think the translation is making this ad seem worse than it is, and that's no easy task.

do you mean like the car is so cheap that it's a "steal" and you are being "robbed" by the price of gas?

even so, the emphasis on the price of gas makes me feel like it doesn't really matter what car i drive. the ad should focus on the gas mileage of the car, not the price. i don't know. now i'm just confusing myself.

I think this is one of those ads where it's better to just sigh and move on.

Why is it that the worst ads are the most commented ones?

I was wondering that exact same thing earlier today.

I think it's because people are trying really hard to find reasons/justifications why the ads are good, rather than acccepting that they are total shit and moving on.

But also - "It's so easy to hate, it takes guts to be gentle and kind"
