GM Spoof Site Calls Automaker Mentally Defective

Reinvention Swapped for Other Word With 'Re' Prefix

By Published on .

Well, now, this isn't very nice, is it? Poor General Motors, through no fault of its own, found itself in a bad way and now is trying to "reinvent" itself (with a few billion in tax payer money) and here comes some anonymous web meanie poking fun at it with a spoof ad called "GM Re:tardation." Here it is.

We sent an email to the crew behind this asking to reveal themselves, but no luck. They did say they threw the site together in 12 hours or so and that they actually think the original GM spot is actually funnier than their own.
