GM pulled its offensive ad that tried to depict biking as uncool in response to complaints from bicycling advocates, but they're still running this ad, showing what a drag it can be a pedestrian because cars will ruin your day. (Best just to get your own car and ruin someone else's day.)

A GM spokesman said that they listened to the complaints they received about the bike ad and "there are changes underway."

“The content of the ad was developed with college students and was meant to be a bit cheeky and humorous and not meant to offend anybody,” said Tom Henderson. “We respect bikers and many of us here are cyclists."

But the hell with you, pedestrians! Sucks to be you, out on the street getting exercise and sunlight and not sitting in a two-ton steel bubble!

We renew our call for the GM marketing department to get with the program already.
