A Fistful of Wolves is a spoof of fashion advertising, commissioned by Mercedes-Benz to spread a cheeky word about Berlin Fashion Week. Even though it's making fun of fashion, plenty of automotive advertising gets caught up in the satire as well. And it stars the Mercedes C111 concept.
Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone is now poking fun at the settlement he made with the state of Bavaria following his bribery trial earlier this year. His chosen avenue for this jest? A Christmas card.
A toucan followed its nose up to a traffic camera mounted high above a highway in Sāo Paulo, Brazil, setting off an cute scene involving the tropical bird making an appearance on the camera's feed. Alas, it seems unlikely that he discovered any delicious breakfast cereals during his investigation.
It's no secret that the average Formula One pit crew present a master class in precision and speed. Of course, those talents are only really on display during pit stops, when they're basically just changing tires or making tiny adjustments. Considering this, it's fair to wonder how they'd do in something a bit more... soapy.
Have you heard of HBO's newest news show, Last Week Tonight? It stars The Daily Show veteran John Oliver, who, every Sunday night, skewers the previous week's events. If you haven't yet, it really is worth a watch.
In case you're wondering, no, the woman didn't actually hit the dog. This is just a commercial, and a fairly clever one after you get over the perceived canicide, that's meant to show off the desirability of Subaru's lifted Impreza wagon, the XV Crosstrek.
Here's a fun fact: not all automotive calamities in Russia are caught on dash cam. Occasionally, someone with just a cell phone captures some gold, like this woeful attempt at unloading what appears to be a Lada.
Chrysler's latest Super Bowl ad follows in the footsteps of its classic Imported From Detroit spot starring rapper Eminem and Half-Time in America ad starring Clint Eastwood. Featuring Bob Dylan's gravely voice asking, "Is there anything more American... than America?" the spot has been somewhat controversial, thanks to a few lines informing viewers that Germany can brew beer, Switzerland can make watches and Asia can assemble phones. The US, though, will build your car, Dylan tells us. When the
Rémi Gaillard, the Frenchman famous for his real-life Mario Kart videos, and most recently featured on these humble digital pages for portraying a living, breathing speed camera, is back with his latest video.
With Super Bowl Sunday less than a week away, this week is going to be dominated by anything and everything football related. That includes advertising and the auto industry, as some of the biggest players prepare to launch multi-million-dollar spots hawking their latest and greatest products.
We were quite impressed by Mercedes-Benz when it aired its Magic Body Control commercial, starring a group of suitably funky chickens demonstrating their ability to jive to Diana Ross and the Supremes. Now, Jaguar has taken the opportunity to poke some fun at its German rival, releasing its own take on the Magic Body Control spot, and um, there's a big cat involved.
Ice Cube, Kevin Hart and Conan O'Brien get into a stranger's car. This isn't a setup for a joke, it's the premise of a video from O'Brien's TV show, which sees the late-night host paired with comedian Hart and rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube to test out Lyft, an increasingly popular ride-sharing service. For those that have yet to experience it, Lyft basically allows drivers to use their personal cars as cabs, shuttling strangers to and from their destinations, but in a manner that is more relaxed
In case you haven't heard, there were some controversial changes to the Formula One rulebook made recently, adding things like double points for the season-ending race and the ability for each driver to choose their own number (previously, a driver's finishing position in the previous season was used).
Smartphones are expensive yet delicate - a single impact on a hard surface can shatter their touchscreens, often damaging them beyond repair. Fitting a case offers only so much protection, but what about an airbag? Honda has explored the concept with the airbag-equipped Case N and even made a video about it. But alas, it isn't real.
