SFGate reports that the Chevy Corvette ad directed by Guy Ritchie has become a PR nightmare. The ad shows the daydream of a young lad - clearly too young to drive - taking a sleek Chevy corvette for a fast flying ride to the tunes of Jumpin' Jack Flash. Consumer safety groups protested saying "This ad is certainly among the most dangerous, anti-safety messages to be aired on national television in recent years", and Chevy yanked it off the air. The ad can be viewed by super adgrunts here. Chevy Corvette Dream
SPECIAL NOTE: Super towards the bottom of the screen at the beginning of the spot: "This is a dream. Do not drive without a license. Obey all traffic laws."
