What’s Wrong with the GM video

Where to start?  How about the music?  Did they commission Philip Glass and tell him it was a workplace instructional video?  It is creepy, repetitive and crude.   Like the video itself which is a series of statistics; how many people the car manufacturers employ, how many dealerships there are, how many people make auto parts.  Its interesting that GM hasn’t been particularly helpful to the later and but alas the video isn’t about them, its about us.  And how after the onslaught of scary statistics and the mind-numbing music, we are suppose to grab the phone and call our congressperson and tell them, “VOTE FOR THAT AUTO BAILOUT!”  Yes, we are suppose to be panicky and scared that our economy as we know it will disappear.  Does this sound familiar?  Like the last bailout?   And so we give them all this money, these capitalist losers and then what?  Expect that they will spend it wisely and build great fuel-efficient cars that people will want to purchase?  Why doesn’t the video even address that question?  How are we to believe they will be successful with our money?  No, they don’t want to even go there.  They would rather spend three plus minutes persuading us that cars are big business in America.  Did someone not know that?  If this is the best GM can do, I say NO! to the bailout.
