    ha! I like these but people are going to get the impression that the message is for young fold to "go ahead and check out that attractive individual on the sidewalk; we'll watch the road for you."

    Some of them are kind of funny.. but most I get is, this car is for girls that are really not interested in driving.

    Looks like ads by a Saudi Muslim organization intended to justify the ban on female driving.

    Yeah, reinforces a few negative stereotypes about female drivers....but at least they weren't texting!!

    Opel was once again the major sponsor of the NYE show at Brandenburg Tor here in Berlin. The Corsa was front and centre on the main stage (OK, a bit off to the side) and the new "OH" campaign TVCs were played on the big screens.

    3D glasses were handed out to the crowd - every light source turned into an Opel logo. The fireworks were awesome with bazillions of Opel logos floating through the sky!!!

    Top night!

    Targets the correct audience for this kind of car.

    Does it while being cheeky.

    That's weird because only the first video may have played to stereotypes some of which could apply to young drivers generally. The second could have easily been two young men looking at a girl. The third was a guy reading the woman's signals wrong so I find it odd how extreme some of the comments are.....not!

    Really irresponsible adverts, apart from the last one. But all are vacuous really. However, did anyone see the Opel Karl/Vauxhall Viva trailer
    come up in the links at the end of the vids? No feed about that yet.

    Super , duper , hits the right audience where it counts , Opel needs a winner right now and this quality product could be a hit . I'm not sure of how it will place in the segments pricepoint , Volkswagon , for one , is super competitive with its pricepoint and really owns the market in Europe . This Opel design and safety features , however , looks to be the right product NOW in that high volume small car segment . Opel lost a huge amount of money last year and will lose big time this year. Hope their pockets are deep enough to get the company profitable , it may take several years .....or never !!
