Best Fictional Character Car Spokesperson

    ...I came across a VW GTI ad with a different but equally humorous theme. It was on one of the Spanish language channels, and featured an old WB Speedy Gonzales cartoon.

    Speedy is stealing cheese from a factory or something. You see him walk behind a rock, and then just a blur moving into the factory and back again...he then emerges from behind a rock carrying an arm-load of cheese.

    Then the cartoon stops and rewinds, and goes into slow-motion. After he goes behind the rock, the previous blur is shown to be Speedy driving a VW GTI into the building and out again, filled with cheese.

    It's pretty clever.

    I read about the Speedy/GTI ad today. Running strictly on Hispanic channels in the US.

    (Gil Grissom on CSI) for any car being pitched to the 'thinking' buyer. Maybe Hyundai, with their message of more content for the money. Definitely not Corvette ZO6 however.

    2009 BMW 335i, 2003 Corvette cnv. (RIP 2001 Jaguar XK8 cnv and 1985 MB 380SE [the best of the lot])

    ...that Ford hasn't tried to get Keifer Sutherland as Jack Bauer to pitch Expeditions or Explorers (the preferred vehicles of the Counter Terrorism Unit on "24"). They already have heavy product placement on the show. But only for the good guys...the terrorists all seem to drive foreign makes. ;)

    "Whether you're hauling hyperactive kids to soccer practice or transporting an unstable nerve gas canister to a secured area, the Ford Expedition has the space and uncompromising ride you need!"

    could have Chrysler rename ther 300 the Imperial and have Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan as The Green Hornet and Kato be the spokespersons.

    Can't wait to see how the Green Hornet Movie looks and what car they will use as The Black Beauty (Chrysler Imperial).

    Why ? Does the design look like a getaway car to you ? I'd think Bonnie and Clyde would want a like a blend in the crowd Camry ;)

    Camry would be better used in an all American drama movie about family picnic on Independence Day, apple pie, hot dogs, kids, babies, softball, etc.
