This guy in the Ford Focus commercial who says something like, “If I say, to my friends, give me $5 gas, they think they’re giving me a fair amount, but really they’re giving me way more than I need.” That kid’s an asshole. Why don’t you ask for the amount you need as opposed to seeing your friends as ATM machines. If they wanted to convey that it uses less gas than people think, why didn’t they just have him say, “When I drive and my friends give me money for gas, they give me $5 and it’s too much. I tell them sometimes, but not all the time.”
Why do they want to make Ford Focus drivers look like people who knowingy take advantage of their friends?
