    I can guarantee the USA Today ad meter and watercooler chatter will all agree that this ad is *not* cool.

    I think that is what the voice-over alludes to. The idea is "the ad is not cool, but the car made you drool...". Not a bad idea, just a weakly done. The beauty shots are gorgeous I just wonder if that is enough. Also, I hate the piano soundtrack.

    True. Just so sick of "beauty shot" car ads. They all look the same to me.

    not sure if this will get beeemer buyers to consider this car - but people that want a bmw and can't afford it may.

    I like the 'David v. Goliath' idea!

    Ha ha ha. This is hardly "David v. Goliath." Hyundai dwarfs both Daimler and BMW in worldwide sales. It's not even close.
