    Remember Cadillac's ad for the ELR range-extended electric coupe? Your emotions might be a little less extreme with Ford's parody ad for the C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid. We'd be surprised if you didn't find it funny though, because it's a fantastic take on Cadillac's overly-driven individual, poking fun but also giving out its own unique message.

Following WhatsApp’s acquisition, it looks like Facebook is still working on Messenger to make it better.
