The Prius Super Bowl commercial rubbed cops the wrong way, calling it a big fat lie!
Police Officers feel the commercial grossly misrepresents what they do. One source said, “Loved it, funny as hell … like a Prius is going to outrun anything.” Others said it was:”silly, overdone and there’s no way you outrun a helicopter.”
The new Prius 4 tops out around 105 mph, while a police cruiser can do at least 120 mph.
They also felt the commercial gave a bad example to children saying, “I had to tell my kids running from cops is a bad thing.”
