Trollhattan Saab Best. Car. Ads. Ever. March 27, 2006 7 Comments Hate to help the competition, but I can’t get enough of these. Probably old news to most of you, but we’re a bit slow here in Oz and I needed to have these where I can seem ’em quick.

True when it comes to both cars and actors 🙂 “Let me hear you say ‘vat?'” Reply Yeah, these commercials are hilarious. Definitely going for the anti-“ricer” crowd. And I admit, it’s working. 😉 Definitely some of the best commercials for cars out at the moment. Reply My vote goes to Ford Ka(evil twin, first ad with bird right here http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4879380207956222020&q=evil+twin second ad is bit too much ;-)http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7952617196221393801&q=evil+twin Reply As for commercials, I like this one, too : http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6820329228562670481&q=renault The Megane II conv. was the first one in europe with a sunroof made from glass … Martin Reply do the germans hate that we like to portray them as gay? 😉 pity they don’t make Golf GTis AWD, i’d probably buy one, gay engineers or not. Reply I don’t think that the designer/engineer character is gay, I just think that he’s a Teutonically arrogant purist — uncompromising. Besides, he’s got Helga… Love these ads! They are the best car ads ever. The sarcastic ‘Oh, snap!’ in the catapult commercial is soooo funny. As a note: Mr. Stromare forgets that he’s German in one spot – ‘What’s up?’ vs. ‘Vaht’s Up?’ Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
