The wheels of commerce give a skip

I'm reproducing an advertisement from today's paper edition of the Sydney Morning Herald. Imagine a small black rectangle hiding in the bottom corner of the schmaltzy Valentine's Day messages taking up half of page 17:
My love for you
grows every day,
you make my heart
beat faster than
a MINI Cooper S.
Well, maybe not a
MINI Cooper S 'cause
that's one fast car.
0-100 in 7.2 seconds.
Cool, eh.
If my heart beat that
fast, I'd probably die.
Love you though.

Bravo! I say. Made me laugh, anyway.
