Mini vs Monster Teaser – Click above to watch video after the jump

Brace yourselves, friends. Things are about to get a little strange. Mini has set about creating a 3D film titled Mini vs. Monster about, well... we don't know what it's about. We assume there's probably a Mini in there somewhere, and there's a pretty good chance that a monster of some variety plays a role, too. But beyond that, our guess is as good as yours. Mini has been so kind as to release three teasers for the films, though none of the trio serve to shed any light on the content of the film at all.

That won't stop us from sharing them with you, though. The good news is that you won't need any pesky 3D glasses to watch the three short YouTube clips after the jump. Supposedly, the trifecta of weirdness use depth of field trickery to give us all an idea of what the 3D flick will bring to the table. Consider us intrigued. Hit the jump to take a look.

      these are weird. not even sure if they are good weird. and i loved the snow globes and then saw a pic of a Mini countryman with a Mini classic (or small mini whatever they are called) that was attached to the roof and driving around downtown. that was cute.
      cute being what they are going for i guess .........

      I love my mini,it is the perfect car and worth every penny of the cost of buying and maintaining it. In five years it has only had two problems,I will never buy anything else but another mini.
      The ads shown here are very stupid and have nothing to do with the car. If I were not a mini person they would make me apprehensive about even looking at the car. It is a shame that the makers of a quality product think such boring tacky ads will attract potential buyers.

      Let's face it, Mini is just a name. Their base model used to be the closest thing to the idea of the original Mini, but they've had a lot of quality control issues.

      Honestly there are other compact cars that are way better and cheaper. Yeah sure they look cool, but they are just too expensive.

      What they really should be, are inexpensive cars that are affordable to repair.

      How about this MINI. Start building good quality instead of silly marketing. The cars have been one of the bottom 3 of the JD power quality survey every year since 2002 when they were introduced into the USA. They are junk.

        I also wanted to add, a Mini Cooper not under warranty is much, much more expensive to service and fix than a Fit or Fiesta.

        With that said, and just to prove that I'm not simply a Mini hater: Mini Coopers have been on the top of the re-sale value charts for some time now. They're in demand and don't depreciate as much as other cars.

        Additionally, they are overpriced. A Mini Cooper S with just about any options added is barely shy of a 2011 Mustang GT 5.0.

        I just bought a 2007 BMW Z4 M Coupe with only 14,000 miles for the same price as a new Mini Cooper S.

        The non S starts at 20, but for what you get, a mediocre, slow 4 cylinder, you might as well buy a Fit or Fiesta for 5 grand less.

        You could make the same comments about a 3-series compared to a Camry, basically. There's nothing wrong with the Fit or Fiesta necessarily, and if the Fiesta existed when we were looking for cars, we would have looked at one. That said, it's safe to say that the other cars don't have the uniqueness, driving dynamics, etc of the MINI, and for those of us that are car enthusiasts (not saying you aren't), character and driving dynamics often result in a purchase that someone who is looking for a transportation appliance wouldn't make.

      Mini's might cost more but there worth it. Compare the interior to any of it's competitor and u will see the differences. The base model alone comes with more amenities than a Honda fit, Toyota yaris, or Nissan versa. There fun to drive get amazing gas mileage and because it's a small light car the 1.6 engine feels more than adequate. So don't hate on a car because it's expensive to repair. Hate on a car that needs to be taken to the shop a lot (whether cheap expensive or in warranty) because after 2 years and 30k miles mine is still running strong

        I love the Mini but it is grossly overpriced. The Fiat 500, if properly marketed and supported will do some real damage to its sales.

        Also, wow your grammar is horrible!
