5 Best Super Bowl Car Commercials
The 2015 Super Bowl is right around the corner, and its got us at Quirk Auto Group feeling a little nostalgic.
This year, the New England Patriots will be pitted against the Seattle Seahawks February 1st, 2015 at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
We all know this means a whole slew of new of entertaining commercials and hopefully, some new automobile advertisements. So, we figured we’d take a drive down memory lane and visit some of the favorite past Super Bowl automobile advertisements.
See if you remember any of these popular commercials that so many people enjoyed and let us know which you think the best (and worst) ones are.
Chevrolet: Grad Happy
Chevrolet got pretty funny with this 2012 Super Bowl ad. Except GM didn’t write this commercial, Zach Borst, a 26 year old filmmaker from Long Island did. GM ran a contest for people to submit their ideas for a Super Bowl commercial, and the winner would be granted the funding for their project. Here’s the winner.
Volkswagen: The Force
The 2011 Volkswagen Super Bowl Commercial, The Force, was a big hit. Breaking new ground on what is said to be one of the biggest advertising platforms of the year, Volkswagen combined an online campaign as well as a television massive audience to showcase the new Volkswagen Passat.
Chrysler: Imported from Detroit
Or how about when Chrysler unveiled its Chrysler 200? In a two minute short film, titled “Imported from Detroit,” showing clips of Detroit, alongside dialogue depicting the unbreakable will of the city and Chrysler itself, followed by an appearance by Eminem with instrumental music from his 8 Mile track.
Flash back to 1990 when Nissan displayed its “Dream” commercial advertising a then new 1990 Nissan 300ZX. It is really fascinating to see how far Nissan and the rest of the world has come since then.
Jeep: Snow Covered
Jeep also gets a blast from the past here. In 1995 Jeep-Eagle released “Snow Covered,” a clever clip of a Jeep trucking through snow well over its roof line. But, this trusty Jeep plows through, even though not once does the Jeep need to be shown. Classic.
