was gonna post this in THETavern but figured it'd get buried quickly & it is generally car related...

2 commercials have grabbed my attention recently

Worst: MercedesBenz
"I Love You I Love You I Love You I Love You ILoveYouILoveYouILuvU..."
makes me wanna Puke - maybe cuz it's played waaaaay too much on some channels
if their rape/pillaged/&sold-into-slavery treatment of Chrysler hadn't put me off them, THIS WOULD
Link (http://www.splendad.com/ads/show/1243-Mercedes-Benz-Summer-Love-Event) for those with a stronger stomach than me
Oh Gawd - there it goes again while typing this :p :p :p

BEST! Hyundai
Duh Duh Duh
esp. the Thus Sprach Zarathustra(2001 theme) one I saw first

I can not remember the car, but my favorite commercial showed an older model car morphing into the newer model. I like commercials to show the interior, and highlight the features. One I will never forget is the one for the Chrysler Cordoba which had Ricardo Monteblan pointing out the wonderful "Corinthian Leather". Ford's Taurus print ad is weak. The car is too small in the ad, and it stresses safety too much. Let's see an agressive close up.

I still like the Ford Truck commercials with Mike Rowe in them because they have a little humor in them and still gets the point across.

^^ yup, I agree BR. Mike is a good addition!

That morphing car rings a (faint) bell - Chrysler/Mopar?
& I hope they've got something special planned for the Taurus/TauruX campaign that should debut soon.


today's installment:
Saw Honda commercials for the Accordian Coupe & Sedan - interesting the sedan's was so dark you could barely make out what it looked like...
AND they NEVER showed the front!!!


update:
"http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/BOBBLE.gif Hold on tight to your dream http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/BOBBLE.gif"...
while we abandon everything we ever stood for!

Saw a post likening the new Accord to a Buick :eek:
__wlb_______ovl__
110.5 - 198.1 - 2005 Buick LaCrosse
109.0 - 194.6 - 2004-5 Buick Century
110.2 - 194.3 - 2008 Accord
107.9 - 189.5 - 2004-5 Accord (didn't have 06-07 #'s handy)

which leads me to speculate if the enlargement + questionable style
will lead to a repeat of
106.0 - 188.0 - Taurus 86-91
106.0 - 192.0 - Taurus 92-95
108.5 - 197.6 - Taurus 96-05 (still think a 'large' part of the decline was due to outgrowing its segment)

&
I'm guessing but wondering if the new Accords cost twice as much as the first ones, so they figured...

even tho I'm the only one posting these,
maybe some lurkers are enjoying them,
or if No One's reading them, I can post what I want (muahaha)
& seeing as I can't get the song outta my head since seeing it...

this is a bit of a stretch*,
it's even a GE commercial, not GM as I thought at first,
http://www.splendad.com/ads/show/1479-GE-Locomotives-Take-My-Breath-Away

Quote:
"Workers around the world who work on GE trains, and the employees
at the GE Evolution Series plant in Erie, Pennsylvania all sing to the tune
of "Take My Breath Away". Some even have drums and other instruments,
while others do somersaults, to make it look like a music video."

excuse for posting:
* Think it'd make a GREAT car commercial!!!
got images of guys &or gals (Jill!!!) polishing & detailing their 'babies' & *ahem* getting-in to it ;)
...with the very last "Away" being drowned out by the engine as the car accelerates off into the sunset
http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/biggrin.gif
we need more commercials that capitalize on an aficionado's 'feel' for his machine!

Kate Walsh + CTS

I love the CTS commercial but my all time favorite was the Un-Pimp your Auto from Volkswagen. That is still on my Ipod Touch.

The Hyundai Big Duh was annoying but was well planned to stick in your head.

Mike Rowe and his commercials were great.

The car morphing sounds like the Mustang commercial but could be wrong, or a different car all together. Now I'm on a mission to find it and post it.

Can I say my favorite car commercials right now on the air are for the Volkswagen TDI vs. Toyota Prius. OMG I can not explain the look and funny look on my store manager when I showed him the commercial on my iPhone. He obviously drives a Prius. OMG too funny.

Past commercials for favorite were the V-Dub Volkswagen commercials for the trick out their car and they trashed the competition. Unfortunately they dropped a shipping crate with a VW Car atop an ugly Focus.

Worst were the DUH from Hyundai....enough said....BLAH..

yes, Reno's edition of CNBC had a new *JILL* commercial
based on the CashForClunkers... ...AREN'T MERCURY'S MARINER & MILAN JUST PERFECT FOR THIS?!?!!!

imho, events and situations are conspiring to force Fomoco to KEEP MERC
first_ JILL (nuff said)
then_ they start eliminating everything except the 2 smallest (ie highest MPG) models
soon_ the C3('s) start arriving
what next?

NO MATTER WHAT Fomoco WANTS -- They're GONNA HAVE TO KEEP Mercury on THEIR List :D :D :D

for some strange reason (tho guess inspired by Lincoln's use of re-made oldies) just thought of an idea for some Ford commercials - - considering how so many articles have been coming out painting Ford (rightfully) as the Leader of domestic AND Mainstream auto mfgs...

here's a LINK to a unique mini-movie from Volvo [4:46] (http://www.volvocars.com/intl/top/community/videos/Pages/default.aspx?movie=fuku979Xd8A) (tho a shorter version is 'out there', approx. 1:17 iirc)

anyway I've got mixed feelings about this
and it was so hard to find that I HAD to post it somewhere...
...since it doesn't really show more of the nextgen S60 than we've seen elsewhere,
I stuck it here
even tho it's not exactly a commercial.

I think one of the most annoying is for the new Jetta. The one showing the guy working odd jobs to be able to afford one. It's stupid and useless. If I worked like that to get enough for 2 Jettas, I would buy something better like an SHO Taurus.

Anyone remember the Lincoln Mark 8 commercial waaaay back showng a bar being lowered and at a certain speed the lincoln lowers itself for better aero and drives under the bar. I liked that one.

Has anyone else noticed this in the new Ford Fiesta commercial? The person on the unicycle holding the umbrella with an "A" is having a slight problem where the person holding the umbrella with the "H" almost runs into him/her. This happens near the end of the commercial. I know we are suppose to be looking at the car only during the commercial but I tend to over-analyze everything so my wife says. Anyways...

just noticed (half over) that there's an hour long program called
"The Future According To Ford" on ABC

so far I've seen stuff about electrics and EcoBoost - some nice footage of the EVOS being driven(!)...
...the info(hype) seems very up-to-date


edit
found out it's going to shown again in just under 2 hours on a subsidiary broadcast station
(4pm Pacific)


re-edit
found it on youtube http://www.fordinsidenews.com/forums/images/smilies/joyous.png

​DEARBORN - Lincoln will be part of the most anticipated television premiere this year on Sunday when AMC's “Mad Men” begins its fifth season. Fans have waited 17 months to catch up with Don Draper and his cohorts at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

A customized Lincoln vignette featuring “Mad Men” star John Slattery will run once before the season premiere, right after AMC's Movie of the Week. And, the new 30-second spot for the 2013 Lincoln MKS will run following the Mad Men premiere. The vignette and ad will run each of the next 13 weeks during the show...

Thanks, Andrew
but I think it's the site even more than the URL - sometimes works for me, sometimes doesn't.
I could also get there thru www.at.ford.com
but
that was all the real info which I posted...
...except for a pic

Ford put nine of its own engineers inside of a new car they helped create, the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO, so they could experience its capabilities for themselves. Nothing out of the ordinary there, but Ford also thoughtfully put NASCAR driver Carl Edwards in the driver's seat, and it turns out that the boffins didn't realize how capable their car was until the Sprint Cup driver showed them.

Cool commercial 2b2. Anyone other than me notice that Mercury Sable go by in the background at 50 seconds?

I love how the Accord owner seems to be some skippy little fidgety guy, and the Fusion owner seems so confident. It is apparent that he is called on often to get his friend out of a bind due to poor decisions.

these commercials are on ALL the Time

Aliens(F-150) - Zombies(Fusion) - Vampire ex-boyfrined(Focus)
(the Art-Theft-Bad-Romance(Escape) and 'heroes'(SuperDuty} are less to my taste)

still can't find them online...
is anyone else at least SEEing these?
or do I need my meds adjusted?

Those commercials are getting boring. As well as the Ford New England Edition anything. The jingle is almost like nails on a chalk board.

I hope they can bring something new. The commercials for the pres day sales that were generic and boring.

Last year was a one-time thing, and probably not the best decision based on the commercial they put out from Jimmy Fallon viewers. Lincoln could probably air 10 ads at a lower-profile event such as the Grammys for the price of one Super Bowl ad and get their message across better.

Could be, I think they need to promote the new vehicles better because that superbowl ad the alpacalypse was not good
