GM will be modifying their Robot TV spot after a complaint from the Foundation for Suicide Prevention decided the ad “unsympathetic to those who are plagued with depression.”
Despite the fact that GM VP Mark LaNeve was adamant that no changes would be made, GM has been cooperative in the matter. Reference to suicide will be removed, along with the end sequence where the robot jumps off a bridge.
Hey, I've been really, really, depressed before...but I would have to be in one baaaad mood before a stupid robot would make me wanna kill myself!
GM caves on robot suicide ad, changes ending
