    An ad at the bottom of TMC really got me. I want a premium ownership experience. I have "impeccable taste for fine art and culture." I want to "celebrate the distinguished and elite lifestyle of horse racing." I want a "private fitting room" at the dealership. I too want to sit on my couch and rub leather samples with a discerning look on my face while a smartly dressed young man in a tailored suit towers over me complimenting my good taste.

    I may not be able to afford a bespoke Rolls Royce - or a horse - but a tarted up Ford will do for make believe.

    Lincoln really has their finger on the zeitgeist of 2017. Who wants a loaded 70D with only a few miles on it? I'm outta here...

    Let's see if Lincoln can get out of the red at the Ford earnings report this year with this new mouthwatering ad. Oh heavenly black label experience; take me away!

    I had one of those Premium Vehicles™ rear end the BMW i3 I used to have. Apparently luxury has a price and that price does not include automatic emergency braking.

    I'm not sure why, but deadpan humor is one of those things that a good part of the population misses. And it doesn't seem correlated with intelligence or anything else that I can pin down. I had one good friend, quite a brilliant guy, who just completely missed it. I would deadpan the most absurd things and he would just look at me like I'd lost my mind. :)

    Wouldn't a horse be a better choice than the Lincoln? The ad is manure anyway.

    What....you mean that advertisements are not just like the internet??? I thought everything was true in advertisements and on the web. Now I guess I will just have to go back and drive my almost 4 year old Model S and put back on my Tesla Grin.

    Some people are linear thinkers and miss all subtleties and nuances.

    I thought the point of deadpan humor was no subtleties or nuances, just being dryly absurd :). In any event @calisnow frankly nearly had me, I must humbly admit (had me hesitating anyway!).

    The thread title nearly had me (I was thinking WTF, @calisnow )... until I read the post itself and the attached ad copy. Touché! :)

    You know...there is such a thing as trolling with thread titles.

    And you just won First Prize, 2016.

    Unfortunately, I would have to Moderate away any post I have that contain the appropriate words I have for you..... :)

    Anyway, getting back on topic for this thread... speaking of the relationship between horse owner/ridership and the desire for aspirational automobiles, here's something Tesla should do for all those who need to back into a Supercharger stall while towing a trailer:

    Ah, is that the buyer's son picking out the leather options? That's the only way someone that age would be looking at a new Lincoln.

    That may be their dream demographic but it's people like my grandmother that keeps buying a new Lincoln ever few years, ramming them regularly into parking lot poles.

    A few ads for the new Black Label (cough-cough) Lincoln experience. If this guy drops enough artist and architecture, fine food and music references that your eyes will hurt from rolling:

    @dhcp - omg omg omg omg. That dealership ad with the amateur hour production and awkward talent could not be more perfect if Christopher Guest himself dreamed it up.
