Group's PR chief Jason Vines responded yesterday to the company's decision to ask YouTube
the two not-ready-for-prime-time gag ads
that Jalopnik had posted and featured on its blog this week. Vines explains the two ads were "part of an outtakes reel for the real gag ads." The two profane ads, he goes on to say, were released without permission, which subsequently sent Vines into a profane-peppered rage of his own after learning of the breach when he returned home from the L.A. Auto Show
We're not entirely certain what the "real gag ads" are and for what reason so much time and effort was spent producing professional quality gag ads that could never be legally aired in the U.S. Regardless, Vines considers the issue dead. Unfortunately, the Jalopnik crew may find it in their hearts to forgive, but they never forget.
