EA Crushing Rodeo

Anyone notice that the cars crushed in the Holden Rodeo 'Monster Truck' ad are all EA Falcons? Pretty cheap shot I thought.

I hate that ad. It's got about as much fluff in it as the 'big, oil chewing V8' ad.

I hope ford respond with some more bullish advertising tactics. We know they won't but I'd pay good money to see some "UP yours" ads from Ford.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

Damn...I saw this post too late. I just posted the same thing.

Looks like we are all thinking about tv ads tooooooo much.

I like that Rodeo ad. It really makes me smile everytime I see it.


Because the penny dropped when I saw it.

Just think. The Suzuki Ingis, no sorry, Holden Cruze has a front end that looks similar to the Rodeo, that looks similar to the new Vectra.

You would assume that this is the new corporate face of GM and Holden.

So, the Commodore may look like this soon.

And they all look CRAP!!

Thats why I smile.
