A Mazda commercial posted on YouTube has been generating dozens of negative comments. You can watch the Mazda CX-5 Commercial for yourself.
Did this cross some sacred line?
I would love to hear what ADM members have to say about this.
Here are a couple of highlights:
"This is a terrible example of greenwashing and it makes me sick. I pity Dr. Seuss who must be rolling over and over and over in his grave."
"You do understand how they're using a story about the importance of environmental awareness to sell a fossil fuel car, right? This ad is laughing in the face of Seuss and everything he stood for by writing The Lorax."
"are you people f****** serious
ITS CALLED ADVERTISEMENT
this is sure as hell not the first car company to utilize a movie to advertise their new car and vice verse
honestly you people acting like its the ending of the mother f****** world just because its a dr. seuss movie
just like calm this s*** down all of it"
Are consumers over reacting?
