Checkmate, Ford: ‘Cadillac Man’ Goes Down in Flames

Ford just came out with a brilliant parody in response to Cadillac’s perversely obnoxious “Poolside” ad. The Cadillac spot features a self-satisfied materialist leisurely lolling around his mansion boasting smugly about how he owed it all to hard work. Ford’s ad features an earnest young black woman talking about how it’s important to “try, try” to make the world a better place. Cadillac Man makes me want to take a shower. Ford Woman makes me proud to be a human being. Well done, Ford!
