Even Motor Trend Hates the GM “College Discount” Ad

By now I’m sure all of you have seen the many dozens of bike blogs and the overwhelming response to General Motors’ ill-conceived “Reality Sucks” college student discount ad campaign — this thing has heated up the Intertubes like nobody’s business over the past week.

One real surprise in the camp of “man, that ad campaign blows” is none other than Motor Trend Magazine. They’ve got a well-thought-out response on their blog that is quite humorous. Take a look at it by visiting the Motor Trend blog.

Perhaps my favorite response to the ad comes from Giant Bicycles. As we posted over on our Facebook page, the good people of Urban Velo reported on Giant’s parodical response. Run over and take a look.
