Nice style, but the last time I checked the G8 is was a Pontiac, not a Scion. Though it is a CAR apparently...
But by itself, that ad would make me think the car had a 4 banger.
I liked the first commercial a lot. I felt with the Spy Hunter theme, you're appealing to the youngsters with the video game theme. This ad should have had some weight to it. Show the grunt this beast has under the hood.
It's nostalgic, esp. for boomers and younger folks. I remember having that type of Hot Wheels set up. It was fun.
And the ad illustrates the "fun" aspect that Pontiac hasn't had in years.
And remember, when the ad ends with the note of the G8 being the most powerful car under $30k it's targeted at folks who aren't into a BMW or MB. Cadillac, and to a lesser extent Buick, is after that target audience. That's evident from the difference in "feel" between this ad and the ones that use Kate Walsh for the CTS. If Pontiac is to again equal excitement then they need to push that. Cadillac, being about luxury and power need to go after refinement and sex. And that's what I've been seeing in the Cadillac ads -- like the "does it return the favour" ads.
AWESOME commercial, i actually like it slightly better than the "spy hunter" commercial. and my 3 year old son LOVES it! when it first started he was like "whats that" but as soon as they showed the front of the car he was like, "THAT'S A G8!!" i will be so surprised if this car does not sell well.
Now that was a great commercial!!! Much better than the Spy Hunter one IMO! Those are the kind of commercials that make you want to buy a car!! (Kind like the T/A hungary commercial of back in the day, they just made yoy excited about the car.) I wonder what kind of commecials Chevy is cooking up for teh Camaro?
