Jeep Liberty dies on little hill

For those who were at Rausch creek when we helped the liberties off the trail maybe it was a good thing we went easy on them and oonly broke some plastic!

As such as I find that funny and sad, got to blame the driver - Curt - before the jeep (then the jeep).
Umm, driving up hill is one thing, angle of arrest at the mantle is another.
Question - should he have gunned it at the top to avoid the "scrap disenbowlment"?

He should have realized that Jeep Liberty commercials are computer generated, not live footage

LOL, I keep going back and watching it, I can't believe how easily it broke apart! He must have thought it pooped out of gear and tried driving more, but all the sounds afterwords made it that much better. I could do without the music though.

My sisters work puts in all the computer generated dirt, dust, rock, mud, mountains, ect. in the Jeep ads. The diffrence between the raw footage and the finished spot... amazing

I don't know if you can blame the driver, other than he may have bought that truck. I have done much worse than that and never seen anything like that. Jeep should be embarrassed.

Something about that struck me as a little too remindful of some iraqi insurgent videos. The music is lousy, and there is a questionable disconnect between the occurence and the fawning over destruction.
