All Cretans are ad execs
This ad reminded of the Liar's Paradox. Not exactly the same thing, but the juxtaposition of messages -- romanticized images of cars brainwash you into desiring hollow status symbols/look at the romanticized images of our cars -- certainly plays to the irony-impaired.
I just get hypnotised by the wheels going backward illusion they usually build into these ads. What brand of car was that again..
