Censorship

Ever wonder if society will ever regain its sense of humor? The auto industry has always been known to have a little bit of fun with their ad campaigns, and rightfully so. Cars are something that we all hold near and dear to our hearts. They are our getaway vehicles, our therapists and lets face it, at times total ego boosters. For some reason though the following ads were deemed either too racy, politically incorrect or too violent and have thus become victims of the censorship Gods. Honestly, I think they’re all hilarious and that the censors and most of society for that matter need to get a sense of humor. Below are 10 banned automotive ads that I have a feeling will brighten up your day. Some will make you grin and others will simply make you bust out laughing which, in the end is what your car should make you do on a daily basis right?

• Smart Fortwo: I still hate these things.

• Dodge Duragno: 7-inches… nuff said.

• BMW 3-Series: Yeah, you’re pretty much toast at this point.

• Hyundai – It’s about choice.

• Chevrolet Corvette: Probably one of the best car commercials ever made…

• Ford Sport Ka: The Europeans always get the good stuff…

• Honda Accord: A bit edgy for Honda, no?

• Nissan Pathfinder: This ad makes me happy…

• VW Polo: Small, but tough.

• Hyundai: Can you tell me why this was banned?

    As far as society regaining sense of humor? Society in general never had one. Not everyone is mature enough to handle anything but the most conservative approach to advertising. Remember again, lowest common denominator. Reason Europe is a little more edgy. They are generally a little bit more mature overall. That’s the truth, deal with it.
