Webster's dictionary defines pretentious as "expressive of affected, unwarranted, or exaggerated importance, worth, or stature." Which brings us to the video above, an ad for the Honda Civic hybrid. The ad features two drivers: one driver is balding and litters, the second driver is full-haired and picks up after the first. I found the ending to the ad to be quite funny. To further, ahem, drive home the point, the music for the ad is from the TV show the Odd Couple.

So, does this ad over-exaggerate the differences between hybrid and non-hybrid drivers or are all hybrid drivers full-haired Felix Ungers?
