Dear Chevron: You’re “We Agree” ad campaign is turning into a giant disaster.

First came The Yes Men with their phenomenal highjacking of the launch of the campaign with a simultaneous fake press release and website. As Michael DuDell pointed out earlier, the fakes did something Chevron’s ads didn’t by holding the oil company responsible for their own environmental screw ups. But there’s more. From HuffPo:

The group has now launched the Chevron Thinks We’re Stupid website, calling on all creative individuals to submit their own spoof Chevron ad, and join in the lambasting of the company for their greenwash.

Will Ferrell’s site FunnyOrDie has gotten in on the fun by submitting their own ad. “Chevron is spending tens of millions of dollars on this ad campaign because it’s easier than just making changes,” the impersonated Chevron employee says, revealing that they really just “think you people are f–king idiots.”

Check out the original ad, followed by the spoofed one after the jump below.
