A Mazda commercial posted on YouTube has been generating dozens of negative comments. You can watch the Mazda CX-5 Commercial for yourself.
Did this cross some sacred line? I would love to hear what readers have to say about this.
Here are three of highlights of the comments shared on this video:
“This is a terrible example of greenwashing and it makes me sick. I pity Dr. Seuss who must be rolling over and over and over in his grave.”
“You do understand how they’re using a story about the importance of environmental awareness to sell a fossil fuel car, right? This ad is laughing in the face of Seuss and everything he stood for by writing The Lorax.”
“are you people fucking serious
ITS CALLED ADVERTISEMENT
this is sure as hell not the first car company to utilize a movie to advertise their new car and vice verse
honestly you people acting like its the ending of the mother fucking world just because its a dr. seuss movie
just like calm this shit down all of it”
Are consumers over reacting?
