While we Australians are served a diet of lukewarm, insipid and frankly boring car commercials along with our daily meds to ensure compliance, our friends in North America are treated like adults and have the pleasure of watching car commercials like the one above; designed to make them feel like kids.
The latest ad for Pontiac's G8 warps time and takes viewers back to the days when they raced Scalextric slot cars in their parents' lounge rooms and pushed Hot Wheels cars around roads that only existed in their minds. Yes, I remember those days well.
Lordy, the boys from Pontiac even have the G8 in the clip spinning, seemingly out of control. How do they get away with it?
