Throwing compost in the face of the soulless, self-interested and pathologically sociopathic Cadillac demographic… Ford demonstrates why it is that they’ll destroy GM

On the left is Cadillac’s universally derided “Poolside” ad, which Car and Driver, as you may recall, said was tailor made for “xenophobic nationalists.” And, on the right, is a parody commercial released online today by Ford’s local […]
