Truth In Advertising

I was watching the Buick LaCrosse commercial as I have done many times. It is the one with Shaquille O'Neill sitting in the car while he goes on and on about the features (which I don't doubt for a second).
What I do doubt is that he easily got either in or out of the car.  That is something that you don't see on camera and interestingly enough, his size is never mentioned.  It is a very  clever way of having the viewer assume that the car is perfectly large enough for this monster sized man.  Further, the commercial leads you astray again when Shaq says "It's like my mother said when I was born; wow, it's a lot more than I expected."

I know, who  cares.
