Of Course, Slowing Down To 50MPH On The Autobahn Carries Its Own Risk


So I'm watching the Train Wreck de France, and one of their recurring commercials is for Bridgestone Tires' new 'run-flat' thingamajig. It shows some guy in a nice BMW screaming down the autobahn when he runs over a board with a four-inch nail in it. Blah blah blah, yada yada yada, and the guy's glad he's got new Bridgestone run-flats which allow him to (per the small print) "drive at 50mph or less for 50 miles or less."

How the commercial ended: The guy continues screaming down the autobahn. Cue the world's worst commercial music (think the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on LSD trying to sing, oh, I don't know, some really teeth-grating aria).

How the commercial should have ended: The guy continues screaming down the autobahn... until his overstressed run-flat tire fails spectacularly, sending him into a bridge abutment at 200kph.



Does anyone know where I can see this commercial online?

I couldn't find it on YouTube, but I record stuff all the time off Versus and I'll keep an eye out for it. If I find it, I'll post it.

But I gotta know - why do you want to see it? I found it to be really annoying.
