Boy Drives Car, Corvette Ad Pulled From Olympics

We've been watching the Olympics, which means we've been watching Olympic ads, too. TIVO apparently can't do everything. (Long sigh here).

Some advertisements are good, others are pretty dismal. On average, nowhere near as good as Superbowl ads.

But, Chevrolet had a good one. Filmed by Guy Ritchie, Madonna's current husband. But, it must have been too good.

Complaints have driven Chevy to pull the ad. It's the one with the kids driving (well, not really) two Corvettes, and winking at each other as they pass each other while "jumping" the cars.

Apparently after watching the ad, some five-year old took his Uncle's caddy for a stroll, and the ad is now gone. Well, your five-year old can view it here (unless Chevy replaces it there, too).

Where were the parents? Why was the car unlocked? Inquiring minds want to know.
