I have it on good authority that the MPAA intend this commercial to discourage movie piracy, rather than, as it appears, to encourage car theft.
One marvels that such advertisements make it past their first test screening, let alone into the forefront of a multimillion-dollar crusade against copyright infringement. The average viewer must jump ship at the first premise:
“You wouldn’t steal a car.”
I would if it belonged to Sony. The first car, I’d steal to drive. The second one, I’d set fire to and photograph burning on a stolen Sony camera, so that later I could send them the pictures of me laughing watching it burn.
