I have seen this dozens of times in the last week.  I can't find the video, but this horror show goes something like this:

Her Buick has WiFi?
Her Buick has WiFi???
Seriously?
Seriously.
Seriously??
Seriously!

Seriously, STFU.

Is this it?



Those poor children at the end. What will they do without internet while walking all the way to the house. They might miss a tweet, or worse, a Facebook status update. Oh, the horror. Unspeakable horror. Shocked

That's the one, though it is an extended version of what I've been seeing.  Reason I didn't think that this was a the one is because they don't show the people at the end.

Seriously. LOL

SICK of the Buick commercials--acting like they are like a Rolls Royce.  The old lady gets in the car and "oooh my!"  BARF!  Nothing more than a rebadged Chevrolet.

Not understanding why car manufacturers are doing this. States are trying to get people from using cell phones and texting while driving, so here comes Wifi.

I don't know why they are portraying this as some kind of technological breakthrough when cell phones have had WiFi & Bluetooth tethering around for several years which would accomplish the same goal. 

Knowing GM's record this "feature" will be riddled with all kinds of bugs and lead to millions of recalls.

Most likely for features such as the GPS, direction look-ups, etc. Standard GPS units are fine for looking up addresses, but the ones I've had require manual updating to get the latest layout of the town and still tend to be inaccurate when it comes to who's open/closed, etc.

Also could be good for online radio channels, and of course the benefit people will most likely see with it is that they'll be able to circumvent paying for high-data phone plans.

I too find this amusing and ironic. Especially with Buick since their target buyers range in age from 66 and up! Buick should instead equip their fugly land yachts with First Call For Help (The Fallen Down and Can't Get Up gee gaw) also a hearing aid cleaner/holder. Plus a deluxe option where you can poo in your seat while driving in the left lane of I-95 going 30 mph. Also a Depends dispenser. And don't forget a GPS where one can find soft prunes and early bird special restaurants. And drop down O2 masks.
I approve this message.

Kinda reminds me of the early Infiniti commercials, bragging about heated mirrors and cup holders.

And an over-size rear view mirror for that glare they give the driver following too close behind.

So much for cheap.
Monthly Plan          200 MB 1 GB 3 GB 5 GB
OnStar Subscriber   $5          $15          $30          $50
Non-Subscriber          $10          $20          $30         $50

One-time purchase packages are also planned in two sizes, and will be valid for the durations noted below. One-time packages are available as follows:
One Time Purchase 250 MB/1 Day 10 GB/12 Months
OnStar Subscriber          $5                         $150
Non-Subscriber                  $5                         $150

For existing AT&T customers, a 4G LTE-equipped GM vehicle can be added to a Mobile Share Plan for $10 per month. 

Shocked  But at least you get 3gb/mo free for 3 months.

I said something similar yesterday. Driving a Buick with WiFi now means you look like you're 48 instead of 72. Tongue The car still looks like a bulky hunk of metal and fiberglass.

Don't even get me started on Peyton Manning and Shaq trying to convince me they drive Buicks! LOL

Listening to Shaq for more than two minutes makes me wonder if he is even capable of driving.  He sounds like he's been hit in the head about 12 times too many.

And usually (though not essential), they'd like to be able to see past the hood.
You know.. "Sit low, drive slow."

Wi-Fi or not, old people should not be allowed to drive.

I haven't liked Buick ads since they dropped Shaq as their spokesman. It seems like everyone in the current ad campaign is an idiot, from the dopes who don't know what a Buick looks like(great selling point there!) to the tiresome 'hip granny' with her blog, to the airheads saying 'seriously', and especially, that couple spying on their neighbors and their new Buick(Hey, guy with mullet, the '90s called, they wantt heir stupid fashion trend back).
But the worst part is that stupid, cloying, repetitive music.
