‘Lonely’ robot hits nerve

Lansing State Journal in Michigan, USA, reports that General Motor’s Super Bowl commercial involving the lonely robot is getting decidedly mixed reviews.

Some people loved the ad for its inventiveness and humor. But in an era when domestic auto companies are reducing the size of their work force by tens of thousands, others said, it’s insensitive to laugh at unemployed auto workers.

The suicide thing was a little tacky as well.
