New Ad for Holden SV6

OK,

Mitsu got in trouble for their ad, so I reckon Holden should also get nailed for their piss poor blatant effort at advertising their product.

It shows the new SV6 with the paddle shift option driving down a twisty road you can hear the exaggerated engine revs ( for effect ) as the dickhead driving is flickin on the paddles to go up and down a gear. There is a definite perception of speed and the ad even sorta speeds up toward the end...........................................and then , it flashes to the backseat where there is a 3 Y.O. smilin like its feedin time on his mummy's 36 triple D's.......................

I thought rally driving stupidity in the Mitsu ad was contravening the ad code of conduct, but this takes the cake.

In an era where we're all trying to take road safety seriously and 60 minutes plasters us with "shock" stories on road attrocities.........Holden sees fit to show their new plastadore speeding around bends with a toddler strapped in the back seat.

Sheeeeeeeesh

Re: New Ad for Holden SV6

Eh, if Ford aren't allowed to show adds like that, neither should anyone be. As for being a sports model.. so? I've never seen a Porsche add ever.. you'd think Holden could sell by reputation/marque recognition by now.

Re: New Ad for Holden SV6

This is not a Holden vs Ford issue, it's us against the do gooders.

Re: New Ad for Holden SV6

I saw the ad, nothing wrong with it. Really it looks like they re hashed the Astra ad, replaced the dog with a kid and a bigger car, the color is the same. There isn't any wild driving in it so it cannot be outlawed. Maybe Ford need to come up with something new.........

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Re: New Ad for Holden SV6

Ford's drag strip adds were good. The Falcon Runout add sucks IMO. Take the age old crap XR6 Turbo add, and have a guy saying "Running Out" in an annoying way 10,000 times.

What he said ^^^^^^^

Holden has always had better marketing than Ford, that's why it sells more.
