Stupid Lincoln

I'm watching an episode of Missing, a show focused on missing or kidnapped people. These events are often disasters in their lives.

Speaking of disasters, have you seen the Lincoln MKS ads?



They chose Major Tom as the theme music.

To launch a new car, they chose a song about a failed space mission where the main character, Major Tom, drifts off into space, presumably to his death.

Do you really want to associate your new car with major vehicular failure and driver death?

Actually the name of the song is "Space Oddity". Other than that, you're right on the money with the creepiness.

My God, I wouldn't get into that car. Look what happened to Major Tom?

Thank you.

Thank you for showing me that I'm not the only one who wondered what the hell they were thinking. It's like a restaurant launching the "Donner Party Combo Platter" or marketing a new line of Hindenberg gas grills.

Just straight creepy.
