Depending on your sense of history, you might remember when Volvos were deemed “boxy but nice.” Maybe even farther back you recall the sleek P1800. But no matter what era you’re from, you almost certainly equate Volvo with safety. And believe it or not, Volvo’s advertising hasn’t followed the plot in a long time, and…
Now more than ever, I’m convinced Father John Misty is a genius. Not just because his own music is great, or because he was in Fleet Foxes, or because he does insane things like cover Ryan Adams’ Taylor Swift covers in the style of the Velvet Underground, but because he just eviscerated the music in every eco-friendly…
Yes, it’s silly. Yes, it’s advertisement-y as hell. (For whatever it’s advertising. Fiats, I guess?) But it stars the Fiat 500 Abarth, maybe the third or fourth most fun car you can buy at the moment, so it’s alright in my book. Take a look.
Hey everybody, here’s something that will ensure you never look at a car the same way ever again. It shows how Audi creates the new 2016 RS3 — by violently, hotly and wetly birthing it from the back of a quivering R8 in a sequence that would make Paul Verhoeven blush.
Ever given thought to what you’d do if you were the last person on earth? Like, if everyone else up and disappeared one day? If (or maybe when) that happens to me, I’m going to do what Rhys Millen did in that Pennzoil ad: Just drift the absolute crap out of a Challenger Hellcat on empty streets at night.
Let's be clear about one thing first: this video isn't real. At least, part of it isn't real. Drifting ace Rhys Millen did all the Challenger Hellcat driving for real, he just didn't do it on a platform suspended by helicopters hundreds of feet above the streets of Cape Town. That would be crazy.
How will Mercedes let the world know about their tire-destroying, twin-turbocharged Mercedes-AMG GT at the Super Bowl? With bad CGI, woodland creatures and one of the most groan-inducing jokes I've heard in a long time at the end.
Alfa Romeo USA has a new ad out for the Alfa Romeo 4C, and it gets straight to the point: fucking. It's all about fucking.
Honda claims their upcoming 2015 Civic Type R will be their most hardcore performance car ever. It sounds awesome, especially considering it's based on a car as ordinary and pedestrian as the Civic. Honda explores that duality in a new ad that you simply must watch.
The van is perhaps the greatest unsung hero of the automotive world. Few vehicles are better for hauling families than vans, but no one wants to drive them. A good van can do almost everything a pickup truck can, but with far less macho flash. It's time we give the van its due!
Why pay attention behind the wheel when your fancy luxury car does all the work for you? That's the message in this rage-inducing Infiniti ad, and Opponaut Kyle Cheromcha is the man to give it the takedown it deserves.
It's good that it isn't, though. We'd probably all pay a lot more in insurance premiums.
Is that why people buy the Mini Countryman? Mini apparently thinks so.
I'm a decent driver, but I'm not exactly God's gift to karting. You may be thinking "That means you aren't a good driver at all, idiot," but I'll be like, "NO, I'd just rather be in a car than a kart." Like a Porsche Cayman GTS. That would do.
Tesla Motors doesn't do traditional advertising and marketing the way the big automakers do. This has led some of the nascent company's fans to make their own, like this gem from a few months ago. Guess what? Another fan has just made the best Tesla ad ever.
You know, when I watch racing, I always think of questions I wish I could ask the drivers. Questions about their technique, or how they maintain their edge. How they wipe their asses never really enters into my thought process.
Better or worse than the new .GIF campaign? I'm going with better.
The Fiat 500 is stylish, fun to drive, great on gas and hilariously easy to park. It's one of the best small cars currently on the market. So why is Fiat continually so bad at advertising it to U.S. audiences?
