There were probably others we've missed. Mind you, the funny ones are often the ones which are simply - brilliant. So let's see if there are 24 more absurd car commercials - which reminds me, I rebuilt the absurd-o-meter, so this should be better.
As always, one car per ad to make this fair.
Also, any ads that were true are further up on the list.
Reason: Actually, they were somewhat right. It was rather ugly (subjective), slow, it didn't handle very well, and you could buy a hot hatch for about the same price.
Absurdity Rating: 1/5
2. I'm a better shot than that.
3. Wait, what?
Reason: I'm sure - I'm a much better shot than that.
Absurdity Rating: 1.2/5
Reason: I'm sorry, how is lipstick an obstacle?
Don't get me wrong, this ad works, but it sure as hell doesn't say a lipstick on the front of your car cuts it.
Absurdity Rating: 1.3/5
4. Imagine most salesmen...
Reason: I swear, this is probably how I imagine most salesmen whenever I want to buy a car...
Absurdity Rating: 1.5/5
5. Well, it's pale anyway in truth...
Reason: I'm not so sure how the Q7 can be even more boring. Or weird. Or both.Absurdity Rating: 1.6/10
6. Well... I can go one better.
7. I'm sure someone did this...
Reason: I'm sure of it.
Absurdity Rating: 2/5
Reason: Well, Mazda did prove it with the Miata.
Absurdity Rating: 2.3/5
8. Oh, what a Camry!
Reason: Chicken, anyone?
Absurdity Rating: 2.5/5
9. (Un)cool look.
Reason: Well - it's still a van anyway. And the seats are too close to the tailgate.
Absurdity Rating: 2.7/5
10. That would solve HK's traffic problems...
Reason: You see, HK is rather dense, and because there is always traffic at nearly every corner, this idea would work. But then it won't because it's "fantasy".
Absurdity Rating: 3/5
11. It actually sunk.
Reason: Well, the car was rather bland and boring, so I don't see why it's exactly adrenaline rushing. The activities are though.
Absurdity Rating: 3.1/5
12. Well, it did work...
Reason: It did work, but the song is rather catchy, and it's got the name with the Honda City. That's just what made it strange.
Absurdity Rating: 3.4/5
13. TRs were great until the TR7...
Reason: I'm not even sure if people should even buy a TR7...
Absurdity Rating: 3.5/5
14. Rather genius for people who buy a car.
Reason: I'm sure I'd love to be Blue Steel for a day ^^
Absurdity Rating: 3.7/5
15. So the 911 solves everything, does it?
Reason: I'm pretty sure it doesn't. I know, they've improve the 911, but sometimes staying to the same thing for so many years is a rather long time.
Absurdity Rating: 3.8/5
16. A Pinto. Really.
Reason: No, this doesn't involve the Pinto being rear-ended, but you weren't expecting Jackie Stewart in a commercial, were you?
Absurdity Rating: 3.9/5
17. Oh, classic Volvo geniuses...
Reason: "What better way to test welds?" - the ad execs.
18. Good luck with that.
Absurdity Rating: 4.5/5
19. Dark? Yep.
Reason: Well it's dark, but it's a Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag
20. Built not bought, eh?
Reason: Well, building a 206. Because why not.
Absurdity Rating: 4.75/5
Reason: If I remember correctly, you'd have to sink the car for this to work.
Absuridty Rating: 4.8/5
Reason: ...how deep. Was. That. Lake.
Absurdity Rating: 4.8/5
Reason: Well, the Prius generates more carbon dioxide when batteries are produced than the car itself.
24. Ah. Nope.
Reason: Not jumping to any conclusions here, but so did other cars fit 5 much better actually. And won't fall apart. But it's so cheesy!
Absurdity Rating: Well, like the Marina ad this week, it blew up.
