The spot is called "Diesel XXX - SFW" but it's not SFW, really. Very clever, guv'na.
My thanks to TheMovieGuru, Cajun Willie and Seth -- all sent me this link today.
Watch it quick before they yank it. Pun intended.

I dig words. There's been some talk here lately about cool words, so here are some I like. What are some of yours?
foist (possibly my favorite word)
maleficent (we've seen Sleeping Beauty too many times around here)
persnickety (which isn't a word; the actual word is pernickety)
And a few words that annoy me:
fixin's (WTF is a fixin'? "Come to our cookout for hamburgers, hot dogs and all the fixin's!" How about I fix my foot in your ass? That's what I'm fixin' to do.)
signage (just say SIGNS, motherfucker)
closure (it's the thing on the back of a bra, not anything to do with you feeling better)
trousers (Pants! PANTS! Not trousers, not slacks.. PANTS!)
And three words which, when mispronounced, make me want to snatch the tongue out of the mouth of the speaker and stomp it into dust.
district (especially with district attorney. I stopped watching Medium because Patricia Arquette says "districK attorney" -- and they gave her an Emmy!)
realtor (Not "real-a-tor," ya hillbilly)
nuclear (only 39 days until we no longer have to hear this from our president)
I guess when you're that old, you say pretty much whatever the hell you want, whenever the hell you want.
Many thanks to Wade for the link.
I always liked Ernest Borgnine... except in From Here To Eternity, when he played a real sumbitch. Great movie, btw, if you haven't seen it. Better than it looks (we've all seen the making-out-in-the-surf scene but the film is more drama than romance). Fantastic cast: Burt Lancaster, Deborah Kerr, Montgomery Clift, Frank Sinatra, Borgnine, Donna Reed, Jack Warden and George "Superman" Reeves in a small part.
Hollywood's homeliest... but don't feel too sorry for them. They are all richer than you or me (except the dead ones). I'm no looker myself, but damn, these people make my eyes hurt.
I'll be nice and not use last names.
