Mmm, Spidery

Am I the only person who thinks that Honda's decision to advertise the new Civic with an image of millions of baby spiders bursting out of their egg sacs was, um, ill-advised? (It's commercial number 6 at that link, "Keyhole". Creepy.)
I like the one with the little cartoon Civic bouncing off the rooftops (though it is exceedingly silly), but this one just sort of creeped me out.

On a completely unrelated note, I'm looking forward to hear what you think of Collapse. You still need to read Guns, Germs, and Steel.

I was so excited when I saw the creepy spider commercial earlier today! It's still creepy and weird, but I really dig the soundtrack.
Could it be? Do I.... nah... Maybe? Yes! I might actually want a Civic now! Marketing worked!

Damn it!

Hey it's a hell of a lot better than the Sony Crown of Thorns (tm). What the f*** were they smoking?
