The van is perhaps the greatest unsung hero of the automotive world. Few vehicles are better for hauling families than vans, but no one wants to drive them. A good van can do almost everything a pickup truck can, but with far less macho flash. It's time we give the van its due!
Mini hasn't been known for making conventional ads, so I guess they expected more of the unusual when they asked ten owners to do test drives and make up ad spots for the 2014 Mini. The videos really do range from rather amusing to "Holy crap, what was that?"
Why do we work so hard? So we can watch our boss parade around his pool in shorts ranting about why France doesn't go to the moon? Some of us have actual stuff to do, says Ford, in this clever sendup of the infamous Cadillac ELR ad.
I keep to myself in cabs. But one thing that gets my attention is a driver with a neck tattoo telling me that he just got out of jail after 10 years and that the cop behind is making him nervous. And especially when he starts a police chase while yelling "I can't go back." I thought this was the end.
...featuring beautiful Jaguars from both past and present.
Claes Nilsson, the CEO of Volvo Trucks, knows you need a hook at the beginning of a YouTube video if it's going to go "viral." He found one. See for yourself why this latest new Volvo Truck video starring him has been watched 400,000 times since it was posted yesterday.
What’s the most well-executed automotive ad campaign you can think of? DDB’s quirky Volkswagen ads from the 1960s? The clever Honda commercials from the 80s and 90s? The awe-inspiring “Imported from Detroit”? Those are phenomenal. But I would argue no one has ever matched the BMW Films from the early 2000s.
The aircraft known in popular culture as the stealth bomber was built with nearly a decade of work, billions of dollars, and total secrecy from the U.S. government. Even the contractors who worked on it didn't always know what it was. So how did a Japanese carmaker reveal it before the Air Force?
SyFy's Defiance is set in a post-invasion world of 2046 where various galactic races live alongside tough but bummed out humans in a drastically altered Earth. It also features a curiously modified Dodge Charger. How'd it get that way? This commercial explains.
Old Spock vs. new Spock? Hell yes. This new ad starring Leonard Nimoy in a Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 vs. Zachary Quinto in an Audi S7 is the perfect example of why Audi is creating some of the best car ads in the world.
Self-styled "internetainers" Rhett & Link continue their evil plot to rule the world of awkward advertising with this latest spot for Arlen's Transmission in Burbank, CA.
In our post-carpocalyptic and post-paper world, truly amazing auto show press reveals are a rarity. Rightfully so. Why spend tens of millions of dollars to unveil a car to a group of balding, morbidly-obese, and irrelevant auto "press" when it's already been seen online by an audience a thousand times larger and more…
We already know that even at the age of 73, Mario Andretti is way cooler than you. But did you also know that he's even cooler than you in a Honda ad?
The lyrics will forevermore be seared into my brain: The only way to travel is Cadillac style. Some people want more. Not just a little bit. This is your life, you're the only one who's living it. Let's go. Let's live. Let's love every mile. The only way to travel is Cadillac Style.
Over 25 years ago, one fine gentleman passed another fine gentleman a jar of Grey Poupon. But it seems that wasn't the whole story. Apparently, that old ad didn't actually end with "But of course."
You may have heard the legend of how Chevrolet's co-founder Billy Durant came up with its famous bow-tie logo when he saw the design on wallpaper in a Paris hotel. Except the legend isn't true. Here's the real story.
The new "Alive" ad campaign for Jaguar, the auto brand named after a kitty cat, stresses a corporate image that's all about asking buyers — "How Alive Are You?" The latest example of the campaign? Jag's asking readers of Playboy's May issue whether they've ever had a "piloerection." Sounds naughty.
Yes, you read that right. Shaquille O'Neal is now shilling for Buick. The former basketball star and inventor of the Shaq-Fu form of martial arts recently shot a Buick LaCrosse TV spot in Pasadena, California.
