AIBU to think this commercial promotes bad manners

First I know this is just an advert.
I'm talking about the Highland Spring water advert.
A guy imagines he's running down a hill and then jumps on to the roof of a train, it then cuts to him jumping a puddle to land at the front of a bus queue and he gets on the bus first.
I just feel it gives a green light to bad manners and rudeness is an acceptable part of day to day life.
Please don't roast me and say it's just an advert, I just feel it reinforces bad manners as the norm.

No, not really seeing it your way.

I just think it's a silly advert.

I'd be more concerned it normalizes jumping onto the train roof...Hmm

I agree with you op. I also can't stand the car ad with mums in pyjamas.
