I truly hope this is someone having a laugh, or else this is just plain worrying!

This 'advert' for the Mercury Villager takes its time to display some of the features that will "make you want to take longer" with your journeys. For example, the laughable 13 miles to the gallon is less than impressive, and even less than a Ford GT! The amazing CD player and the sliding door are also well showcased in an ad that will make you run out and attempt to stop anyone who has one of these. I particularly liked the "professional closing door" touch, good work guys, this is hilarious!
