Great commercial!  Had not seen it before. Thanks for posting.

Comments:
1.  Too bad it required water on the ground to spin the tires out of the parking space. (Jeez. At least photoshop it out of there.)

2. Bitchin action footage, but would this have proven the minimum (or maximum) level of what's considered by Hertz as "abuse?"
 
"Hello, legal...20 guys claiming to be from somewhere called SAAC just returned 20 of these car with bald tires. They claim they drove exactly as Hertz advertised."

3. I wonder how long that commercial aired.
Current:
Kirkham Cobra with 482-inch aluminum side-oiler
Formerly:
1968 GT500KR #2575 (1982-2022)
