Saw this one on TV over the weekend at a bar, and Jalopnik just picked up on it


No. Chevy, just stop. No one is going to mistake your products for Range Rovers or BMWs. ESPECIALLY the Equinox. And Jason at 0:17 and his "This is Chevy?!?!?". What did you think it was? There are unmasked Chevy bowties all over the vehicle and steering wheel.
"very similar to a range rover"

I've had plenty of time driving/riding in the Buick equivalent - It's very nice but no...just no...

edit, here's a different one that's just for the web:


I like the idea but it's hard to believe that these are "real people, not actors."

I think Microsoft did it better with Vista's Mohave Experiment ads:


Supposedly they were random XP users roaming around a San Francisco shopping district.

None anymore...
Oh god, why oh why did I open this thread? Was it the fascination of seeing something so bad you didn't imagine it would be possible? Was it the reflex of opening every thread on finalgear? Nobody knows, but I know full well that I won't be able to get some of those ads out of my head, even though I'll never have the chance of trying the product they are trying to sell since I'm in U-Rope...

Nissan's use of CG.

Everything's just a bit too shiny, just a tad off in terms of motions.

Although I must begrudgingly admit that their latest ad for the Altima manages to include a shockingly realistic CG IC CE school bus.

But still...CG *shakes fist*

Thought I posted it in this thread, but I guess not....

Apart from everything else wrong with that ad, I can't stand the music.

Nissan is pretty good at making ads that annoy me. I can't stand this Juke one either.

The singing one is borderline for me, but I like the other one I saw, and I like the one you posted the best. :lol: There's no hope for me...

Direct TV has a series of these. Makes me want to punch a horse.

Oh, I really liked those DirecTV ads....

But THIS ONE. If you have to build a roller coaster track to make the car "exciting", aren't you proving that it isn't?
