Jokes on us: Chrysler takes gag ads off YouTube

The pair of risque gag ads produced by The Chrysler Group's ad agency BBDO Detroit have been unceremoniously yanked off YouTube and their poster, the fine upstanding netizens over at Jalopnik, slapped with a DMCA violation. Apparently Chrysler PR doesn't think the image of those under its employ having some actual fun is good for business. On the contrary, Chrysler was actually seen as cool for a brief fifteen minutes for being involved in an ad with swearing and other entirely unairable content. It wasn't aired on TV, it was posted on YouTube where the rest of the cool not-for-primetime content lives. We're hoping Jason Vines, Chrysler's megaphone-for-hire, will deliver unto us an unsolicited explanation for why the gag ads were made and how they got out.

For a moment both ads were reposted by YouTube member JalopnikHeartsJoe, but it appears that DaimlerChrysler is watching the feeds and looking for where these gems will pop next up.
