Absurd Commercial

I keep seeing this commercial. First it was just during Yankee games, but now, I'm seeing it on other stations.

This man leaves his house, kisses his wife good-bye, puts on what looks like a bicycle helmet and then jumps off a cliff, free falls a bit and then parachutes right to his new Suzuki SUV. Then he starts driving on the rough dirt roads around.

OK, the dirt roads aren't all that tough. But unless you're in a really rural area, when was the last time you saw one? The roads in this commercial are in better condition than the last dirt road I drove.

Now, I know the commercial is supposed to show how sturdy the SUV is and how it's for adventure seekers. But it leaves a burning question in my mind, every time I see it...

When he gets home from work, how does he get up the cliff back to the house? Does anyone care to surmise?

I think SUV's are so dumb as in wasting gas and hurting performance dragging extra mass around for no good reason. Only about 5% use suv's for off roading and the rest would be better off with minivans for lots of kids and stuff hauling. I prefer high performance sporty cars.

Being that the man depicted in the commercial is such a rugged outdoors type guy, perhaps he rock climbs up the cliff wall to get back to his home, after parking his Suzuki SUV at cliff wall's base. Then, after getting home, he gets his parachute-rigger certified wife to pack his parachute and bag lunch of trail mix and sports nutrition bars in preparation for the next day's commute to work.

Sassy, that still doesn't work. How did he get up the cliff to the house in the first place, after parking his SUV down there?

red, I have to agree with you. They're a status symbol around here, nothing more. How often do you have to move a refrigerator? A U-Haul or Ryder truck would be better for that anyway and has the hydraulic lift to boot. Hey, have you seen the Hummer stretch limos? Talk about ugly and a waste of gasoline.

I personally hate SUV drivers. Most are making up for certain *ahem* inadequacies. I make no secret of the fact I'm well aquainted with an escort. She and I would have discussions about some of her clients. She and I were having dinner one night before she went to see a certain client. Now, I know it's cruel, but I would play guess the penis size with her.

This client she was seeing after dinner owed a Jeep Grand Cherokee and a Hummer. OK, I would always start with my hands roughly 6" apart as she went through what a client owned. This one, I was down to 2.5". So, I talked to her after the client, he was 3". He wasn't the first, or the last I managed to guess right on, based on vehicles. So, I go with the bigger the SUV, the smaller the attributes.

However, I just saw this commercial again, waiting for the Yankees rain delay to end. I have another question... How do they get the groceries up to the house?

Thought the same thing--how does the guy get home? Interesting dicussion with your friend. Perhaps I should test-drive a "mid-size luxury car!"

The groceries would either have to be hoisted up by a rope that the man ties to them after having he has climbed up to the top of the cliff wall, or simply just delivered to the house each week by a helicopter-grocery-delivery service, although I'm afraid that this option would be rather expensive.

that's so funny....as soon as I saw that commercial, I thought of the exact same thing.

...it probably depends on the day of the week...either he hanglides in from an adjacent mesa, or he skydives in from his buddy's Cessna, or he just rock climbs the vertical north face.

isn't that what real men do? Gee...I drive a Pontiac and a Chevy truck...I feel so inadequate now. So that's what real men are like...
