I am amused at advertising that casts one's own product in a negative light. This goes on all the time with the "new and improved" approach, but the current one that tickles my gizzard is the old lady uttering the line "That's what I told him!" in response to the statement "That's not a Buick!"
Of course, I have the line down pat and can mimic quite well the inflection that the lady uses in her delivery of the line. But that is not the point. The point in point of fact is that Buick is attempting to sell you a car by denigrating the product they sold to your parents, or to your grandparents, or even to you two, three, or five years ago.
Such a response from an elderly lady who for the past several decades was too busy to much notice automotive styling would be natural.
