The Astra Ad....

Just wondering how many of you have seen the ad going around on TV at the moment for the new Astra Convertible. In particular I draw attention to the soundtrack song playing during the ad. The song is 'Bohmeian Like You' by the Dandy Warhols and has been edited specially for the ad.

This edit consists of the removal of one (or possibly more) line(s) of lyrics. In the ad you hear the line 'You got a great car.' but then the edit kicks in: in the original track the next like is 'yeah whats wrong with it today...' which has been carefully edited out! When i heard this last night i thought it was hilarious but possibly the wrong car to be featured in the Ad: wouldnt it be more appropriate to have an OilSucker(tm) GenIII car in this ad?!

Yeah, it sounds a little ricey. That's probably why they decided to add the "amusing" bit with the dog, to sway people's attention from the car.

So true... the revs sound the same every time. Then he shifts from 4th to 3rd (not that theres anything wrong with that), but yeah, it sounds pretty crap.

Give it time and the RSPCA will be complaining about the add as the dog is not in a safety harness, nor is it secured in the vehicle.....
