My inbox has been bombarded by a slew of automotive commercials set to air during the Super Bowl this year. I have to admit, I’ve enjoyed watching them. Here’s a preview of what you’ll see airing during Super Bowl 46 in Indianapolis.
Ferris Bueller Redux – Oh the nostalgia! It was cute to see “Matthew’s Day Off” even if it is to promote the 2012 Honda CR-V. The nods to the classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” brought me back to my middle school days, where I so wanted to play hooky like Ferris Bueller.
RedBugg II’s appearance – I love my 2012 VW Beetle and I loved even more seeing one just like her make an appearance in “The Dog Strikes Back: 2012 Volkswagen Game Day Commercial,” making me want to hop in the car for another road trip. While I think the commercial is so-so, the Darth Vader Kid fans will like the ending.
So Long Vampires: Audi 2012 Game Day Commercial – I think this commercial is kind of cute, but I won’t lie, I HATE LED headlights. They blind me at night. There’s even an LED outdoor light across the pond in my back yard that almost burns my retina when I try to look at the stars. One day, it might just have an accident. Regardless, the commercial itself appeals to the Twilight/True Blood loving set. And I saw one of those 2012 Audis today on my way home from work….as I passed it by in my 2012 VW Beetle.
To me, it looks like we’ll be seeing a good number of car commercials during the Super Bowl, but if they are entertaining, it’s alright by me!
