Perhaps not so much of late, but back in the day every car crash in movies or on TV involved an explosion. Drove off a cliff? Explosion. (Occasionally in mid-air. FTW? WTF!?!) Drove into a wall? Explosion. Drove into a tree? Explosion. Crashed into another car? Explosion. Hit by lightning? Explosion. Slammed the door too hard? Explosion. Stone chip in the windshield? Explosion. Drove into fog? Explosion.

Ok, so I’m getting a bit carried away, but how did the auto industry NOT file suit against the Hollywood studios for misrepresentation of the quality of their products?
