They need to ditch that whole "Pontiac is..." crap ASAP. It completely ruins an otherwise perfect TV spot.That's definitely a great commercial! I love when they finally think of something different to do than the same old stuff. On the flip side, anyone that isn't a die hard Pontiac or G8 fan will laugh when it comes up with "Pontiac is car.com" at the end of the commercial.
I agree. The GTO burnout commercials were pretty good, but I haven't seen anything worthwhile since then.Ahahaha...good one Pontiac, but I think that all Pontiac commercials need to be more aggressive, more viceral.
That's the coolest commercial ever.
Pontiac or not, they could be advertising AIDS-infested flood-damaged Daewoos filled with WWII German memorabilia and I would still sign up for their newsletter.
Also, is the Spy Hunter theme the coolest theme song ever? I thought so too.

Absolutely killer. Nice job Pontiac. Every G8 should be delivered from the back of a weapons van!

The coolest Australian car since the Pontiac GTO.

That just happened.
They should give everyone a raise that worked on that spot.

Ah come on man, are you serious?!? This ad shows the car accelerating, braking, swerving... how better can you showcase a performance sedans abilities?!? This is an awesome commercial that not only sticks in your mind but conveys the exact message they want to convey: this is one fun car!And the gimmic does not convey that this car is a real performer... to do that, you need to see the car behaving naturally, not the unnatural motions conveyed in the commercial.
I'm kind of disappointed...After watching the video, I went to the Pontiac website. I used the "Build your Pontiac" tool, and it sucks. I couldn't add anything cool to the G8. No machine guns, no missile launchers, no smoke screen, and definitely no oil slick. I think GM really dropped the ball on this one.
