Vauxhall's new TV commercial for the Astra TwinTop  takes us  to an exotic, sun-soaked locale where the  hardtop convertible shows a group of assembled surfers a thing or two about catching  waves.

In addition to being incredibly clever and fun, the spot is blessedly devoid of the idiotic legal disclaimers American viewers are regularly subjected to, such as, "Simulation - Do Not Attempt",  "Not appropriate for water use" or  "Vauxhall Astra is not a surfboard -  Will sink in open ocean."

Without question, it's one of the better campaigns to come from any automaker this year. Bravo!

      On the whole Vauxhall's television advertising campaigns have improved.

      From inception of the new model Astra I have enjoyed the focus of advertising via TV commercials.

      I am not so enthused by the 'Grown-up' kids who help promote the Zafira and Meriva or by Collina's Vectra adverts.

      But I guess you cannot have it all.

      I hope Saturn gets a twintop version when the Astra replaces the Ion.
