Oh geez, what an obvious story. Full of cliché's (even the soundtrack). I'll have nightmares about this tonight.

Whether it was on purpose or on accident, I thought it was pretty bad.

Compared to the rest of the category on U.S. TV at the moment, I have to say this rises to the top as one of the most entertaining and memorable car ads I've seen in a while. I'd love to see all the naysayers post links to better car TV campaigns running at the moment.

Hmmm, simply - story isn't funny.
And I would like to see your real nickname.

Speed is not the best thing to sell a car today... this is a expensive donut.

Simple ideas are the best !

Bang. FYI there are a lot of European commercials for this car that are good.
Google thejukeclub for a bunch of extra stuff on the car.

Anyone know who is the stylist for this ad? I would love to find those red dress shoes.

Nice execution and good actoring but what about this script??? It's so lame... Too pity, it could have been great!
