John Oliver Skewers GM with Devastating Parody Car Commercial (Mediate)
Attempting once again to win the internet with a viral parody ad, this Sunday’s edition of HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver featured a new, perfectly honest General Motors ad that uses actual words from the troubled carmaker’s leaked public relations memos.
In 2013, GM has recalled 11 million vehicles, putting the auto business on pace to break records for recalls in a single year. The recalls have been related to issues with brake lights, headlamps, power brakes, windshield wipers, and a deadly defect in ignition switches.
