Women Drivers, A Missed Commercial

I was watching this TV commercial a while ago, but I forget what it was advertising. That’s usually a bad sign for any sponsor.

A woman, in her 40s and intent on her job, was driving an elderly couple on a huge, heavy bulldozer through a maze of tough hedgerows. The trouble was, on the opening scene, they showed a middle-aged, pudgy white guy on the other side of the first hedgerow scrambling to find a way out. The scene quickly changes. Now we are low on that far side of the hedgerow (the pudgy white guy has disappeared) as the bulldozer rises up over the hill and crushes the hedgerow, then plows ahead through the other hedgerows. I wanted to cry out, “Hey, there’s people back here!” The driver would have no chance to avoid them, and the potential victims would have no place to run.

I’m guessing the commercial is illustrating some company cutting through the financial maze, but not about them endangering lives to accomplish it. The sponsors should be happy we don’t remember who they are.
