    I saw this ad last night during the big game and while my friends were laughing at it, I honestly couldn't help but think that this is a very possible outcome of all this 'green' madness that our country is pushing down our throats. The ability to make your own decisions, even about little things like lightbulbs, is slowly being eroded by our government.

    That was a scary ad for me too. I didn't like it at all because in the coming years it may become truth.

    Everyone else laughed at the commercial.

    I thought: 'Sad but true, coming soon to your city'.

    Glad I wasn't the only one offended by that piece of garbage.

    To think, there are not a few people who would actually like to see that kind of tyranny imposed on us. :steamed:

    That is how I felt as well.

    I kept hoping it would be something mocking the green agenda and what it could become, but was saddened to see it was for a stupid car.

    Yes these are funny now. In truth I can honestly see this coming to a town near you. If you think this could never happen think again. Look back 50 years and ask yourself do you think we could be in such back shape as we are today?

    I felt the same as many of you but I think that's what was intended. Audi was definitely poking fun at that madness.

    Yeah, an Audi TDI....

    They act like its some friggen new invention, Volkswagen has had a TDI model for quite some time now, and considering Audi and Volks are the same company essentially it makes me wonder a) why they did not do this before and b) why is it such a big deal, seems like a natural progression to me.

    Good humor, done well, requires an element of truth in it to be really effective. In this case, it is an uncomfortable truth (Eco-cops) but the potential is very high for Eco-cops in America's future. As I understand it, there is already an element of this in play in Britain today as concerns the sorting of recyclable materials.

    There are plenty of people in this country who WANT this.

    Scary.

    Most excellent.

    I turned to my girlfriend who was laughing and said "I give it five years to get to this point". When she said how ridiculous it was, I explained about the TV police in Great Britain who kick down doors for watching TV without a license.

    This was probably the worst commercial on last night. It was just stupid. Almost makes me want to litter a plastic bottle somewhere...
