My reaction as well. Of all the different types of buses to use, why waste a Fishbowl? Ugh...

I know I'll catch hell for this, but I'd rather they chose a newer, more recent bus, preferably an O7NG.

They probably didn't want to spend a lot of money on a new bus.

That's most likely the reason, but it's still sacrilege to smash up a perfectly solid-running Fishbowl! I had to cringe after seeing this commercial on TV! :P

You think that's bad? I had a hard time watching Speed when they blew up a Flxible Metro and a Fishbowl. That was the hardest thing to see when it came to that movie.

If there's anything that this commercial, and the movie 'Speed' taught us, it's that older buses are more susceptible to this kind of treatment, and buses could never, ever, EVER jump 50 foot gaps in the freeway! I was 12 years old when this movie came out, and I was among a few people in the theater yelling, 'YEAH RIGHT!', when that Santa Monica #2525 Fishbowl, made that impossible jump! Damn you, Hollywood!

Thanks, Joe! On the bright side, there's still a good number of GM Fishbowls out there! Let's just hope they stay preserved for old time's sake! This was tough enough to watch on TV!

Go to tranes website...ask them why they chose a fishbowl....you'll be surprised
I found the commercial amusing and ironic, considering the bus had no A/C

There are plenty of preserved fishbowl buses, and a bunch more that are just rusting away. Not every one can be saved.

I understand that, but even so, this one's in good shape, and they could have substituted another bus for this one! I know, what's done is done, you can't reverse this!

You know for certain it's in good shape, or you're guessing from the video? Looks can be deceiving, and paint can hide a lot...

I was referring to the sound of the engine, it SOUNDS like it's running well, but given only one minor interior shot, you can't tell much else about it.

I think it is ridiculous to assume that they would use a bus in good condition for something like this.

That's neither here nor there. Doesn't change the fact that the Fishbowl getting smashed was the final outcome.
