Favorite car ad?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I was just on the web looking at car ads from the 60s through 80s and this one ad from Mazda stuck out to me as one of the coolest I've ever seen. Its for the RX-3SP. What is your favorite car ad? New or old.

Japanese 80s/90s gave some great ads. Things were so corny back then.

Audi should just stop making cars and concentrate on advertisements.

Jaguar's aren't bad if a little OTT.

Germans seem to be good at this, as it turns out.

And then there's the best short film which tried to sell us a car I have ever seen.

Also, because relevant, this.

I have multiple favorite ads.

More French cars? :D

But I like Honda ads. If only their cars were great like their cars...

And one older one.

Ferrari/Shell has a good one too.

I remember "The Cog" from Honda. Honda ran a campaign with a local newspaper where they gave you a small magazine depicting the many virtues of the the current Accord and they also gave you a DVD with this ad in it. I think I still have somewhere at home.

Matra et Alpine 08-10-2013 11:57 AM

loved this one for the tune ... it just got stuck in there.
You'll be humming it later :)

By the way, thanks for posting that ad, my dad used to have a RX-3.

Matra et Alpine 08-10-2013 02:46 PM

ok, not a favourite, but oddly this one came across my fb wall :)

WHAT THE **** ?? If anyone can explain this then I'm not sure I want to know !!!

ASIDE: I do get annoyed with these "banned" titles. Many of them - remember all the VW ones - were never intended to be broadcast and were meant to be viral and push the envelope and be a bit of fun. So calling them "banned" is just crass sensationalism ... my 2c worth :)
