Shopping for a new vehicle that isn’t a Kia Optima? You’ll think twice when you check out a hilarious new eight-spot campaign cut by Whitehouse Post via agency David & Goliath, and starring Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin and actor Jack McBrayer.
Corvette Stingray invited a professional driver and 5 people to take part in the world's first reverse test drive of its 2014 model. The Stingray tested the people. They strapped people into biometric monitoring systems which measured their responses.
Everything from heart rate, electrocardiography, and respiration was measured. (Although presumably they didn't measure the nervousness that comes from sticker shock registered from realizing the car starts at $51,000.)
Super Dæk Service wants you to know it's now called Super Dæk Værksted. (That last word, I am told, means auto-shop.) To get the word out, they made a very over the top spot on how they are getting the word out.
This spot debuted during the premiere episode of The Walking Dead, with a call to action directing zombie fans (and presumably Hyundai fans) to WalkingDeadChopShop.com.
Can you survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
Listen, if I've survived so many spots featuring zombies in the past few years, I think I can survive anything.
Mitsubishi of Canada has just launched a new economy car called the Mirage that gets a whopping 64MPG and comes in at under 13K.
With that kind of mileage you'll have a lot of dough let over. How much dough? Enough to have the spot's punchline.
This must be the rain and the sun and colors. This must be a European spot for a Honda Scooter, directed by Luigi Pane.
A Toyota Camry. Not the most exciting automobile, is it? Well you're wrong, at least that's what I gather from this demonstration idea that turned a short drive in a Camry into a roller coaster type ride worthy of Magic Mountain. People are thrilled to be swooshing up, down, sideways and in - oh my - reverse. Looks like it was a fun ride with a "professional driver, do not attempt", but better still are the genuinely squee-surprised reactions from people who did not expect this. Everybody say weee!
Lance Acord directed this Instagram-filtery slive of life featuring a family and their new and used Subarus.
Parents may want the best for their kids, but that doesn't mean they're gonna teach the kids to drive in the new car. Nice touch making them twins.
It looks almost exactly like it, but you'll soon spot that this A-HA video homage isn't the actual video, the look was achieved using the same rotoscoping technique. Stills were shot to get the right angles, and then the story was animated.
The race is on with a Volkswagen in full view, the hero wins, sees the heroine with her halo of curly hair, and they dance all eighties like with rolled up suit-jacket sleeves, shoulder pads and oversized skirts. Aaah, the 80s. We don't miss you.
Golly, in this Enterprise Rent-A-Car advert the American employee rushes up to Dave to ask if he is as pumped about the deal as he is. The awkward that ensues could only happen between these two types of English.
Whoah, this is tablet-game brought to life. Remember those special pens and toy cars you could get at toy stores, where if you drew a line the car would follow the line? This is like that but with a real car, formula 1 driver Jarno Trulli, a huge hangar of space, and special game areas where you had to pick up bonus points along the way. Passengers designed a race-track in real-time on a touch tablet, and Jarno Trulli would drive the road drawn. Fast. Points would be detracted for any sliding outside the lines and failure to pick up bonus-packs.
Move over "Charlie bit my finger" here comes "Charlie the hamster chases the carrot and steers a 15-ton truck up a dangerous road" - which I admit doesn't quite roll off the tongue. It's got it all though, the drama, the suspense, the animal trainer, the adorable hamster. All this just to show off Volvos confidence in its dynamic steering the trucks come equipped with.
Well done, Volvo. The truck category will never quite be the same again.
From the director that brought you Swear Jar comes this over-enthusiastic VW salesman. So enthusiastic is he that he'll pretend to be peoples co-workers just to sneak them out for a test drive. When called out for being so well-versed in Volkswagen knowledge with: "Do you work for Volkswagen" he can only reply: “No, I work for the company that we all work for…the place we just left.” Nice save, Johnny Conquest. Speaking of saves, what are you doing at the Sporting Flax corporation?
“You do not want these in there. Trust me, I’m a bag boy. At ...eh.. Here. ” Directed by David Shane who also brought you Swear Jar, the overzealous VW salesman Johnny Conquest in this ad tries to trick people into taking the VW Jetta out for a test drive. Johnny Conquest knows his stuff when it comes to the Volkswagen Jetta, but he can't remember what the name of the place he's pretending to work at.

Biscuit director Andreas Nilsson takes viewers through a time warp in this new spot for the Toyota Corolla via Saatchi & Saatchi LA. Showcasing hot trends from every decade since the Corolla was born in the 60s, it’s clear that the Corolla will never go out of style -- unlike some of those regrettable fashion choices.
