People who drive SUVs are well aware of the issues of them. They either choose to ignore them or consider them points of pride in owning an SUV. It shows how rich, powerful and safe you are (in their minds). Those ads will make non-SUV drivers feel vindicated and still attract all potential SUV driver.
It really is a brilliant viral campaign so I am laying my money on that.
