The upside of giving a damn.  
So these two separate ads came to my attention tonight:

Why do we work so hard: Cadillac



Upside - anything is possible: Ford



Pretty clever rebuttal there.

It's really funny.

But...It's a marketing ploy as Cadillac is a division of Ford and they're just stereotyping who drives what.

That's something I didn't know! I thought the first ad was pretty offensive; I just wanted to shake the guy and tell him to get a life. But knowing it was deliberately done to contrast against the second ad dilutes the effect somewhat.

You also have to remember that in the US that Cadillac ad would have definite appeal for some buyers.

I can well imagine; there's a certain subset of Aussies who would find it appealing as well.
