A little payback for the suicidal-robot ad?

I guess we won’t be seeing many happy-autoworker commercials for General Motors brands in the immediate future, now that the UAW has called a strike against the company. Whatever the ostensible causes of the work stoppage, AdFreak suspects it actually stems from the bad labor-relations karma that GM created with the Super Bowl commercial in which a robot on a GM assembly line pictures himself being fired (and, soon thereafter, committing suicide) for dropping a bolt.
