I personally thought it was hillarious.
I'm not a big cat fan and have always said, walking on my car was "grounds for killin".

The other day when I found paw prints on my hood, all I could think about was that commercial.

She was driving the car, one thumb on the wheel; cigarette burnin, life to her was no big deal.
Her thin, white tanktop was almost see-thru; I've always been attracted to her dragon tattoo.

That remains me of another (european) Ka commercial;
a dove sitting in a tree and looks for a while at a parked Ka at the other side of the street, than he's flying to the Ka but he never reaches the Ka because the hood opens and hits the dove so hard that he's dead.
(for sure also computer animated )

clear corners, 1997 tail & corner lights, shaved trunk lid, removed fender emblems & door moldings, painted door handles, K&N conical-QSP air intake , deep tranny pan, drilled & slotted rotors, Derale tranny cooler, 19" Alba Bank and Air Ride!

Good job Ford

You can tell when the body slides off the car and with the head, especially.
