General Motors: Bikes don't get you chicks
 
Quote:

What has General Motors been doing in the wake of its bailout-assisted turnaround? For one thing, trying to convince young American men that hot women will laugh at them if they ride a bike.

Check out this new print ad that the automaker has been running, to promote its college discount. A man on a bike hides his face in embarrassment as an attractive woman rides by in the passenger seat of a car, smiling at his pathetic-ness, apparently. The message isn't subtle: Riding a bike is hazardous to your sex life.

The ad provoked a storm of criticism on Twitter. "As a college student and an avid cyclist . . . . I'm proud to ride a bike, and so are millions of others. Bad move" wrote one user, in a typical comment. In response, G.M. this afternoon at first apologized and said it would "make changes" to the campaign, then hours later announced it had "decided to pull the ad from our rotation."

I don't think an economy chevrolet will improve one's chances of getting lucky, but for those desperate enough, i guess it's worth a shot.

well its a lot easier to pick up a hooker, or any chick, in small chevy compared to throwing one on a bike
and really, isn't that the car's main function :cookie:

you would.

I tend to believe extremes are for suckers

I aim up the middle.

'trane 10-26-2011 01:40 PM

i would say your first post was describing an extreme. i only posited the other matching extreme.

and i aim in the back......
