    Video: Hyundai's second Super Bowl ad is a Nice piece of work
    1391007660

    Yesterday, Hyundai unveiled its Dad's Sixth Sense Super Bowl ad, which showed off the 2015 Genesis Sedan and its auto emergency braking system. While a fine spot, it lacked the pizzaz we expect of a commercial for the big game. Hyundai's second half-minute commercial, however, is more of what we ...

    Video: Watch this bright-orange Lamborghini Huracán shoot a commercial
    1390931040

    As one of the most prestigious sports car makers on the planet, Lamborghini doesn't have much of a need for commercials - the German-owned, Italian brand's cars speak for themselves. It strikes as rather odd, then, that Lambo's new Huracán was spotted zipping around a downtown area with a ...

    Video: Hyundai's 2015 Genesis Super Bowl commercial is Dad-approved
    1390859820

    Super Bowl commercials allow advertising and marketing execs the opportunity to let their hair down, have a bit of fun and get silly. That's why Audi's ad features a mutant, CGI-animated dog, GoDaddy's spot features a beefcake Danica Patrick and Kia has recruited Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, ...

    Video: Audi Super Bowl ad will star creepy Doberhuahua dog
    1390507020

    Poor little doberhuahua, so misunderstood. In fact it's so misunderstood that we don't even know what it is. Not that something like that would stop Canadian songstress and animal rights advocate Sarah McLachlan from plucking at our heartstrings, though, in the teaser video below. The apparent ...

    Video: VW blends every successful Super Bowl ad ever into its big game teaser
    1390325400

    Volkswagen has a long, proud history when it comes to that most American of traditions - the Super Bowl commercial. For this year's big game – its fifth as an advertiser – VW has a new idea. There is no tiny Vader or Jamaican accents, just a very German formula. The formula attempts ...

    Video: 2015 Subaru WRX gets down and dirty
    1386981000

    Looks rarely tell the whole story. We'll admit to being a bit let down by the Subaru WRX and its rather conservative appearance - where were the gold wheels and the spoilers? Hatchback? World Rally Blue? But after seeing it in this video and hearing that signature, throaty growl while this red ...

    1382965200

    Now that the 2014 Cherokee is finally on its way to dealerships, Jeep is starting its marketing blitz for its new crossover, beginning with this 60-second TV spot, called Built Free, that premieres today.

    Video: Honda CR-V spot delights with 'impossible' illusions
    1382641080

    Mind-blowing car commercials that employ optical illusions and jaw-clenching stunts instead of computer animation are becoming the norm these days, and everybody from Volvo Trucks to Forza Motorsport 5/McLaren are regular contributors to the growing trend. Honda joins the crowd in its latest ...

    Video: First 2014 Toyota Corolla commercial dances through time
    1378595100

    Despite the fact that the Toyota Corolla pretty much sells itself, the eleventh-generation 2014 model is getting a huge marketing push that aims to appeal to both Millennials (of course), as well as the older generations that have lived with the stalwart Japanese compact for decades. The first ...

    Video: 2014 Kia Soul gets new 'Totally Transformed' hamster commercial
    1377275400

    The lovable, anthropomorphic hamsters from Kia are known for electronic dance music, head bopping, and of course, a certain funktastic Korean box-on-wheels. With a new Soul on the way, the adorable rodents need to be ready to appear alongside the resculpted crossover. Only one thing could get ...

    Video: Audi revisits Ahab on desert island paradise in new ad
    1376600220

    Well, call us Ishmael. Long ago (okay, about eight months), Audi debuted an ad during the NFL playoffs called "Ahab." It showed a salty tow truck driver and his years of catches. During that time, one particular car eluded and haunted him - a white Audi A6, whose Quattro all-wheel-drive system ...

    Video: European RS6 Avant ad features diesel-hybrid R18 racecar
    1376153820

    We'd be just as happy to casually walk back to an RS6 Avant as anybody, but Audi's commercial for its fastest ass-hauling wagon takes casual to another level. The RS6 isn't even seen until more than two-thirds of the way through the 46-second German commercial, but Audi seduces us long before ...

    Video: Watch Marc Gené hit the track in an Alfa Romeo 4C, then get the girl
    1375572540

    Alfa Romeo has turned up the heat on its 4C ad campaign, and we can't tell if it's from the hot laps Formula 1 test driver and Le Mans racer Marc Gené did in the car or the hot woman waiting for him and his passenger when they pull off the track. It seems yet another trend has started, as ...

    Video: Nissan had to re-edit this commercial two times to placate Aussie ad watchdog [w/poll]
    1375485300

    Nissan recently aired a commercial in Australia for its Pulsar SSS hatchback – think of it as a five-door relative of our Sentra – in which a couple is seen hastily making their way to the hospital ahead of giving birth. But the ad you can watch now isn't the same ad that aired ...

    Video: Skoda Octavia vRS is just the thing for your pumped-up neighborhood
    1374881340

    Skoda, oh Skoda. You're just so cool. Maybe it's the fact that it's a brand that we don't get in these United States, but Skoda's rebadged Volkswagens, in particular the new Octavia vRS shown here, are just different enough from the hum-drum VWs on our shores that the Czech brand seems strangely ...

    Video: Honda celebrates the life of Ayrton Senna the best way it knows how
    1374857100

    Honda is returning to Formula One in 2015 with McLaren, and when that engine maker and that F1 constructor are mentioned together, two other words are never far behind: Ayrton Senna. There are engine suppliers, constructors and drivers that have bigger numbers, but those three form a triumvirate ...

    Video: Volkswagen GTD ads drive home the power of diesel
    1374785880

    The flurry of Mk VII Golf GTD television ads by Volkswagen, which range from funny to hilarious, just make us want one that much more. The focus of these 30-second commercials is on the torque-rich performance of the hatchback's turbocharged 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine, which has a stump-thumping ...

    Facebook was so 2010, so it's no surprise that automakers are taking advantage of newer social media applications for their marketing purposes. Most recently, Lexus invited more than 200 followers on Instagram ("Instagrammers"), along with their smartphones, to make a commercial of the 2014 Lexus ...

    Video: Chevy ad compares Spark EV with Ferrari 458 Italia
    1374181080

    Chevrolet's new commercial for the 2014 Spark EV emphasizes the little hatchback's performance over pretty much everything else, and it even goes as far as to compare it to a Ferrari 458 Italia. That's right, the electric bubble is pitched in the commercial as having a higher torque figure than ...
