Ford parodies Cadillac spot, shows that not all Americans are egocentric consumerists

Last year, after releasing a spot that featured Neal McDonough lecturing viewers on the superiority of the American way, American automotive-producer Cadillac provoked the ire of many viewers, who felt that the self-celebratory promotion typified many of the negative connotations that people often assosciate with American consumerist culture. And now, in what could be seen as an effort to assuage some of the reputation damage done by its competitor, Ford has released a new TVC that parodies Cadillac’s version and shows that not all Americans are simply preoccupied with accumulating unnecessary material items for selfish purposes.
