A Honda Civic television commercial in Israel is funny, but is it too controversial for the intended market?

The ad agency representing Honda Civic has outdone itself in capturing the wit and humor of Israeli society in a new commercial targeting new auto buyers.


The commercial advertises the joys of driving a Honda Civic. Although it is in Hebrew, the message is clear, featuring actresses demonstrating how pregnant women can convince police officers to cut a driver some slack — even if he’s been speeding — by pretending to be in labor.

But given the high rate of traffic accidents and fatalities on Israel’s roads, as funny as this commercial really is, might it be in poor taste? invites readers to respond with your opinion of this commercial on this issue.
