    I don't mind that it shows its best on class towing ability

    My all time favorite Holden one tonner ad is the "one tonne Rodeo" jingle though

    Also, the crossbar is not a win IMO. Will probably still sell well though.

    +1 for showing there are other selling points aside from fuel economy.

    The message is good, the idea is good, but the production quality is kind of sloppy. But it's better than what we get here.

    Truck commercials here have really gotten crappy...

    Angry Re: All-new Holden Colorado TV Ad

    Absolutely ridiculous advert!!! Slams everyone who knows anything about recovering a vehicle and craps in their face!!

    The chain just 'looped' around the bar on the back of the truck, people standing in line with the pull of the vehicles, ESPECIALLY the fact the chain is looped around the tow ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How many people get killed a year due to poor recovery techniques and tow balls breaking?? And they have the nerve to advertise this as an acceptable way?

    Whoever created this ad could be in for a whole heap of trouble should someone follow with what they have done and an injury or worse occured. "But that's how they did it in the ad so we thought it was what you do"

    Absolutely disgusted in this ad!!

    Re: All-new Holden Colorado TV Ad

    Ever been involved in a recovery like that where things have gone wrong?? Ever taken your ute off the black stuff??

    I have!! I've done 4wding courses, recovery courses, and have a heap of experience in getting stuck vehicles out. I know what to do and what not to do and am sick and tired of hearing people killed by using the towball thinking it is safe to do so. There honestly isn't a lot of information to people who buy these things and seeing this done in an ad will make them believe it is acceptable practices.

    Bottom line is health and safety... Holden would have no real comeback on this should something go wrong as it is advertised as safe to do. They should have used the right gear, don't have to show em hooking it all up, but should have used proper practises.

    Personally I think the car itself is ugly as but that's beside the point. Teaching people bad habits through television (yes mate, it happens) should be discouraged as much as possible.

    I think your over reacting

    Every day there are thousands of occupations misrepresented on TV

    Cops don't usually act like they do on Cop shows - i cant tell you how many times my brother in law (Navy) would bitch about how unrealistic Sea Patrol was .

    It's just the way it is

    Well they are spending $17 million on an advertising blitz and are aiming to sell 20,000 in the next 6 months.
