Unsafe at Any Speed

Published on .

At least Chevy will be able to save on some of those royalties for the Rolling Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Reuters reports that GM, in the face of protests from safety groups, has pulled an ad that features a kid daydreaming about racing a Corvette through the streets and, at one point, through the air. In a joint letter to GM, a coalition of groups described the commercial as "among the most dangerous anti-safety messages to be aired on national television in recent years." The commercial was created by Chevy agency Campbell-Ewald and directed by Guy Ritchie via Anonymous Content, with special effects provided by Digital Domain.
