Timing is everything

Various reviews today as to whether this ad:

was appropriate to run during CNN's live coverage of US Airways Flight 1549, which managed to land in the Hudson River with all passengers escaping in tact on Thursday.

The ad takes the mickey out of air travel, especially the idea of landing on water, and says that using video technologies is the way to go.

Brilliant timing or crass mistake?

Oh, and I only post this as I've talked a bit about video banking recently, so maybe this proves the point?
