Richard Gere Fiat Ad Political Controversy

Richard Gere Fiat Commercial

Richard Gere and Fiat have caused something of a political storm over their recent advertising. It seems Chinese authorities are very sensitive to anything Tibet, especially from this particular Hollywood actor …

Gere has been critical of the Chinese governments human rights record. He is also friendly toward Dalai Lama, and has been vocally against their policies toward Tibet. It seems casting was more than just about his leading man good looks.

Singing Dog Sells Volkswagen Polo in Cute Advert

In this regard the VW Polo advert delivers in spades.

Honda Problem Playground Advert with Jigsaw Car, Rubics Cube Mural and More

Honda Jigsaw Puzzle Car AdThere seems to be two types of car commercial these days. The bland, same-old-same-old, shiny car on mountain pass, and the innovative “makes you think” type like this one from Honda.

Have you seen it yet? I expect not, as I think it is only aired in the UK, so having it available on YouTube is a bit of a treat.

It features a car made out of jigsaw puzzle pieces, a mural made out of rubics cubes and lots of fun little segments in one short ad.

Innovative Honda Car Advertisement

Honda Car TV CommercialSome of the most formulaic ads, come from the car industry.

How many times do we need to see a shiny car traversing a windy mountain road next to the ocean?
