New SUV TV ads?

I don't if I dreamt this up, but I thought I saw a headline that the FCC was looking into SUV ads being deceptive.  Since then (although I haven't watch much TV), I don't remember seing any ads with SUVS climbing impossible mountains and speeding through 5 feet of mud.  Anyone else notice this?

Adrian,
I keep seeing that Jeep comercial where the guy inherits the swamp land and is driving through it like a mad man.  I also keep seeing the Caddi commercial for the Escalade cutting through the clouds and ending up on the top of a mountain.  I just saw both of those today while working on painting the inside of the house.

Hmmm, perhaps I'm not watching enough TV, or I really was smoking something.

What about the one with the three Jeeps conquering a probably  8-10 or so rated trail to block a lady from dricing off the road in a rain storm.

What they did was impossible with stock rigs.  Really pathetic.

A long time ago it was cool, but now everyb SUV has to be shown going off road on something 99% of their owners would not take with their beloved bohemoth.

In my mind they are UAVs and should have major restrictions, people drive them like they are a weapon so they should be classified as one.

I keep seeing this commercial with me on top of a golden pyramid dress in sun god robes with thousands of naked women throwing little cocktail pickles at me.

Why am I the only one that has seen that commercial?
