.cars & metal - things that go (ads)

 

VW Up has some advice for you.

Here are some fun ads for VW in South Africa that are very matter-of-fact in their advice. "The car that takes you places," reminds me a lot of Toyota's "Let's go places." I guess because it's more or less the same tagline. Stillt hese are quite witty and are in some ways a modern take on the classic Bernbach VW ads. The women headline is my favorite.

Jeep - The landscape song / Made by mountains - (2015) :60 (Argentina)

FCB In Argentina brings us this amazing concept for Jeep. To truly express the feeling of hitting the road in the mountain peppered south American country, they engaged musicians to write a song based on the height-changes in the Andes.

Honda - Keep Up (Faster) - (2015) :30 (UK)

Salt lake. Check. Drifting cars in good light. Check. We are checking all the tired car ad clichés in the opening shot, but this seems refreshingly current anyway.

Mercedes-Benz Brazil gets sarcastic for Ago

The headline translates into "How to take a spin in a car that isn't yours." If this is lost on you, I'll explain. Eike Batista, was once the richest man in Brazil. He lost almost all his money and was then had some assets siezed. One of the judges in the case took one look at Batista's cars and went ahead and helped himself to a joy ride. This headline humorously mocks that recent scandal.

Screaming grandma makin' up stories about twisters she never saw when she was a kid? I guess BMW is going after that all important demographic of grown-ups who can't wait to shove their senile old biddies into an old folks home and forget about them.

VW "Park and Drive" (2015) 1:27 (Poland)

Fun idea from VW Poland. Warsaw has some nasty parking problems. VW decided to take advantage of that by saving a parking spot for you with their car. When you approached, they'd move and then after you parked your car, you got the chance to take a VW for a spin.

Saying good bye to your old car is hard. Thankfully Opel believes in reincarnation and melts down a friend's old faithful on four wheels, turning it into a new Opel Kadett. So the car will live on.
