I thought about posting in the other thread, but I felt a new one was appropriate...
Honestly, and I don't mean to be offensive here, but I always kinda thought the WRX commercials were lame. If you really want to sell me on a WRX, don't show me some tool-box listening to Golden Earring making some lame ass comment "Huh huh, this is my favorite part, huh huh."
I wanna see a commercial where someone is just beating the shyte out of the thing, pushing it to it's limits. Say for instance some pizza delivery guy just hangs the ass-end out around this hairpin. Or some blue collar guy dumps a 5k launch from a stoplight so he can merge in front of a Civic before the construction barrels cut off his lane...etc Ya know? Get my blood flowing, impress me.
I always thought a Mustang Cobra commercial with big smokey burnouts, sideways-ness, aggressive camera work and redline exhaust notes would be pretty sweet as well.
Anyway, you get my drift. I realize that car companies can't exactly do this. You'd have every squid in the world thinking they were Mario Andretti and in result smashing up their brand new cars, filing lawsuits, killing themselves, others...idiots. In fact, we may have just found a new form of natural selection...sorry, that was harsh.
