Default Re: The best car ads

Saw this ad playing on the default ad channel of Tata Sky which keeps playing the same ads in loop, and I still couldn't change the channel till they stopped playing the loop!

The music, the scenery, the concept and the luxurious way they have shown the car are all enhancing the feel to an all new level.

Very rare that Maruti Suzuki gets one right -

Except one small issue - the car.

Take out that Passat, put in the crossover Tiguan - and that ad scores a 100%. Passat looks out of its element in a great plot which screams a perfect crossover otherwise.

Default Hyundai super bowl commercial. Non inclusive?

Just came across this commercial by Hyundai ( ) and was frankly disappointed by the inclusion of a vegan dinner party among activities people find displeasing.

Other activities shown (root canal, colonoscopy, middle seat in a crowded flight, etc) are unavoidable and obviously, not things people would sign up for unless they didn't have an option. Veganism is a choice - like it or ignore it, but to ridicule and categorize it along with these other activities does not paint Hyundai, a mass market leader, in a positive light.

In this day and age when anything emanating from a particular perspective could be considered incendiary, doesn't it make sense to steer clear of these topics?

I don't know man! I thought the Ad was all right. Thanks to social media, I think at times we tend to overreact to otherwise perfectly funny things. Laugh a little buddy.

It looked like as if the male companion of that girl going to the vegan dinner party didn't have much of a choice.

Sometimes people join these things because of peer pressure and what not. I think this is what the advert is portraying.

Agreed. Its a personal choice. If one does make it, he/she should be proud of it and shouldn't be so easily ridiculed or offended.

I found the ad light hearted and non offensive.

Disclaimer: Not a vegan. Strict vegetarian though

Safari's "Reclaim Your Life" campaign - wherein an adventurer is shown resting in a tent hanging off a cliff. The oneness with nature and that with your wheels, gives a spiritual, relaxing, serene vibe. I am yet to find an automotive advert that can one-up that one for me.

A new video by Mercedes Benz on YouTube which shows how they helped a son fulfill his blind father's dream of driving a car. This video literally had me in tears by the end of it. Massive respect to Mercedes for doing this.

Another BMW //M Ad. I just love these series of Ads they have put up for the M Edition cars. The soundtrack is dope in this one!

I donít know if this is the right thread to put a newspaper ad. Saw the below ad in todayís newspaper.

The best car ads-c76a74ebf2c64476b74de71ee4b40d55.jpeg

Note : it mocks the new craze for orange colour of other manufacturers. But I think the global polo has an orange colour on offer.
