If you've been fighting the urge to sink your bank account into a Subaru BRZ, go ahead and skip this post. As it turns out, our neighbors to the north are being bombarded with a new ad for the sexy Japanese sports car. The spot has all the makings of a winner. With an ear-catching siren, impressive visuals and plenty of slow-motion sideways action. Autoblog Canada was able to visit the set during filming.

PR firm Tribal DDB rented a vacant skating rink just for the occasion and let loose a stuntman amidst the manufactured smoke for a little handbrake fun as the cameras rolled.

Subaru doesn't exactly need any help selling BRZs at the moment. The cars fly off showroom floors faster than the automaker can ship them. Head over to Autoblog Canada for a full write-up on the shoot, as well as a complete gallery of the action. You can also watch the TV spot below.

      Great commercial.. I agree the dubstep music is annoying though. Rant: I've had my eye on a BRZ at my local dealer (NH) for a while now. They've had it for over a month now, which is odd considering a story Autoblog had about the average time a BRZ sits on the lot is four days, and I couldn't figure out why. I visited the dealer's lot off-hours and saw they added a $500 "graphics package" and essentially ruined the car. I can't believe the dealer was THAT desperate for an extra $500 on a BRZ that they'd literally ruin the car. Can anyone defend the dealer's actions here? What the heck were they thinking?!? Dealer is in NH.

      This is a great car. Im still undecided which one. The Brz limited has the push button and auto HVAC which makes the center stack better. Im wondering if the FR-s will be getting it them next year?

        If it helps, Randy Pobst was asked to drive it and the FR-S in a comparison (along with other vehicles). He gave the nod to the BRZ because he felt that he could push it further to the limit.

          Saw the video of Randy Pobst last night on youtube. Im now looking for performance and review video of the auto trans cars. Reviews say it is just as good as the stick. But I don't want to see words about it I want video.

          You want an auto? Sorry, can't help you there other than saying that The Truth About Cars had an article mentioning that an auto FR-S. Don't think he had anything good to say about it, but go check it out.

          I swear, if the internet could be separated by age, it could actually be a decent place to get information. A shame about all the dumb kiddies on their parents computers. If we could have a way where you logged into your browser with your driver's license, to prove your actual age, maybe adults could opt to browse the web without all the potty mouth idiot kids. One day, perhaps...

          So disagreeing with your opinion officially makes someone a fanboy, didn't know that.

          Sadly, a driver's license doesn't have a way to track intelligence, so we'd still have to deal with the potty mouth idiot adults. And there are just as many of those..

        I completely agree, but that wasn't dubstep in this commercial. It was drum-and-bass music, which has been around for at least a decade and has an upbeat pace to it, unlike that other $#!+ that makes you want to go to sleep in between beats.
