General Motors produced an advertisement not unlike an ad from many years ago (below) promoting cars at the expense of transit. Giant Bicycles (granted, a massive Chinese firm) produced an ad in response.
Ad produced by local GM dealers to promote car sales in the Vancouver, BC metropolitan area.
It reminds me of a Dial soap commercial I saw decades ago, it was very good. A woman was on the bus, people were crushed together, stinky and sweaty, and then an unpalatable suitor asked her out. She lamented "I wish I had a car." Then the Dial tagline was spoken: "Aren't you glad you use Dial... don't you wish everybody did?"
