Scenery In Car Commercial Changes Right Before Your Eyes, But You Don't Notice it

This is a commercial for the Skoda Fabia in which they argue the car is so attention stealing that you won't notice the scenery changing. Obviously, the fact you don't notice the scenery changing has nothing to do with the car, and everything to do with the constant cuts in the video, and using movement to focus your attention in different areas. Still, I always think it's weird when car companies try to advertise boring ass cars like they're actually amazing looking. Don't focus on the looks -- focus on the gas mileage or airbags or electric windows. I feel like I'm being lied to. Because I can't imagine a single person that would look at the Skoda Fabia and think, "Damn, hopefully I don't see one of those on the road because I might get so distracted I crash!" I guarantee you could time-travel somebody here from the 1700's who's never even seen a car before and even they wouldn't take a second look.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to lilco, who agrees if you can't trust a car company to not lie to your face about how a car looks, how can you really be sure if it has airbags where it says airbags?
