The public discourse on Cadillac's now-infamous ELR commercial is largely focused on its celebration of Reagan-era-esque douchebaggery, cultural tone-deafness and the hypocrisy of a car company that was bailed out by public funds saying "Other countries don't work so hard" to justify its apparent earned privilege. All valid points, but largely overlooked is the lesson that money can't buy style. Being an epic profit-seeker might get you the suit. It won't teach you that it doesn't fit you very well. And even a working-class person from the countries you apparently look down on knows that you don't use the bottom button on your jacket, you smarmy prick.
