DETROIT - Less than two weeks after General Motors unveiled a high-priced TV commercial for the 2005 Chevrolet Corvette, the automaker pulled it last week. Consumer and safety groups complained it promoted a dangerous message.
The commercial, called "A Boy's Dream," appeared during NBC's Olympics coverage. It depicts a pre-teen boy daydreaming about driving a Corvette.
Representatives of several advocacy groups protested to GM CEO Rick Wagoner.
Their letter called the commercial "among the most dangerous, anti-safety messages to be aired on national television in recent years."
