This ad has been posted and pulled from YouTube before, so we’ll see how long it lasts. 45 seconds of crash-porn, showing old bricks being thrown, crushed and rolled to test for safety. The twist is that this is supposed to show how BAD those cars were, because drivers needed to push the brake pedal themselves. With “City Safety” your car will stop for you. Meh.
The Jalopnik blog rated the Volvo 240 as the 5th best car to die in because it’d be so damn hard to.
…if you manage to die in one of these — the automotive answer to “Why don’t they just make the whole airplane the same way they make the black box?” — you’re really trying. We believe effort should count for something in today’s shoddy, lackadaisical world.
Sweet black brick they have for an image.
