24 More Car Commercials That Were Too Absurd To Sell Cars


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...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVH_qkSX4k4

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...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLnsuBylffc

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJext1d6KFA

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Oc6s-9FToA

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.

Absurdity: 4/5

18. Good luck with that.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VE3CKRWajc

Reason: Really.

Absurdity Rating: 4.5/5

19. Dark? Yep.

Reason: Well it's dark, but it's a Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag

Absurdity: 4.25/5

20. Built not bought, eh?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ha5im2Yh6nE

Reason: Well, building a 206. Because why not.

Absurdity Rating: 4.75/5

21. How?

Reason: If I remember correctly, you'd have to sink the car for this to work.

Absuridty Rating: 4.8/5

22.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DO1bxwDQ34

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.

Absurdity: 4.99/5

24. Ah. Nope.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLyACJfMMuk

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.
