Bus Association doesn’t the Priceline ad…

Bus Association doesn’t the Priceline ad…
No matter what you do, you’re going to piss offsomeone or something.  Now, that recentPriceline ad that kills of the Priceline character via a bus explosion, hasrubbed a certain organization the wrong way.
From CNN, ((The American BusAssociation is asking that Priceline pull an ad that shows its longtimespokesman William Shatner dying in a fiery bus explosion, saying that itbelieves the ad is in bad taste.))
Uh, if we use this form of logic, then this ad and Star TrekGenerations should offend bridge builders because Shatner died in both of thesescenes falling off a bridge.  Is itreally in poor taste?  I thought it wasrather funny, but the funniest part is Shatner cutting off the Priceline Negotiator theme song. 
Every group has to be offended by something I guess. 
From CNN, ((Group spokesmanDan Ronan concedes that he doubts any potential customers will be afraid totake the bus after seeing the spot, but said "it portrays the industry ina bad light. We're protecting our brand and our reputation."))
Then I guess you all really didn’t Speed either or thatRosie O’Donnell bus movie either.  Okay,I hated that Rosie bus movie, but come on. Bus crashes portray the industry in a bad light not an ad by TJ Hookerhimself. 
Your group should be offended by this…
Why is Rosie so over the top?  I'm sorry, but Shatner is better actor than Rosie.
