In your face asswipe kinda dude for sure. I wasn't planning on a caddy anyway, most seem to not be able to go faster than about 35 in town, maybe 55 on the freeway, downhill with tailwind.

HaHaHa, my buddy's CTS-V will do 55 in 3.5 seconds.

I take no offense ever from Madison Ave - they're the OG trolls.

It doesn't necessarily offend me...


But I do think it is a super big time stupid fuking commercial...

That's the 'he who finishes with the most toys wins' ad.

You know, us 1%ers.

Yall should just change the channel and pay no attention to the 'got mine' crowd.

I agree that it is stoopid and maybe even counterproductive.
Now 30 seconds' worth of a CTS-V at Laguna Seca might sell some Caddies.

It certainly wasn't aimed at the baby boomer leftists demographic still ass-deep in counterculture veganism who commute on Segway scooters to cash their government checks, stop by to purchase medical weed , and then hang out at Starbucks the rest of the day .

and if he can't drive with a broken back
at least he can polish the fenders

and it seems such a waste of time, if that's what it's all about

That's true, Trotter but there is a lot of gray area between that and this guy.

I rarely see Cadillac's on the road anymore...

The allure is no longer there I don't believe...




I am PROBABLY wrong...

A fat American who works too much and has so little imagination that all he can trade those hours wasted off his life is acquire material goods...some roll model!

Who wants a useless Cadillac anyway? The only climber who could carry that off was Dick Cilley in his prime! And even he had to set it on fire and dance on top of it!

My household thought it was hilarious, but Reilly tells the problem perfectly. The CTS-V used the BMW M5 as a benchmark, and surpassed it for less money. That caught my attention.

Otherwise, Jaybro has it right, though I'm curious, Jay. Was your use of "roll model" an intentional pun?

Ah but he had blue eyes and wears a mean cut of a suit!

Yeah, but if you are going to let yourself get offended by someone's lifestyle I would put that dude way ,way down the list.
I mean the streets are full of all kinds of disgusting examples you got to work your way through on the meter of offensiveness before getting to our Cadillac dude and his family, pool , and house.

Offensive? No. And I'm clearly not the demographic they are aiming at.

Irrelevant? Yeah, that's more like it.
