Thumbs up Possible Falcon AD

I have a great idea for a falcon advertisement!!!

I among other people obviously have noticed the amount of ACDC songs used in the holden ads.

Depending on what rights holden has to the ACDC songs i was thinking maybe when the Series II BA Falcon is released, or maybe for advertising for the Falcon GT (Which has been scarce) we could have one of the falcons flogging a commodore of equal terms (Eg. Monaro, GTS) in a race, or something similar, while having the song of ACDC - Shoot Down In Flames or ACDC - Ballbreaker playing.

This would go perfectly in opposition to the 'Game Over' slogan.

It would be a perfect ad, opposed to the 'old mans style' advertisement of the current BA lineup. Just how to alert the marketing department to this idea, im not to sure off!

Matt

Re: Possible Falcon AD

Might get a bit of "holden done it first" for the songs/band, but otherwise it sounds right

Unfortuneally this is true.

Holden would have paid AC/DC for their songs. IMO are better that the 'Can't get enough of this' song we get.

I want ROCK

Re: Possible Falcon AD

ACDC is much better, and represents Australian Rock...Aussie Band...
I dont think holden would have bought all the ACDC songs, because that would be rather expensive. They probly buy the rights when they make the individual ads...

Re: Possible Falcon AD

holden really seem to be pushing the dirt farms with their ute ads.
one tonner, now crewman, bit country bumpkin
show a GT doing some sideways action on a salt lake with some deathmetal playing, that'll score some attention

Re: Possible Falcon AD

Yeah Australia is a farming nation...Holden is claiming to be Australian by having ads on a farm...
Thing is the GT is completely Australian, so having any song other than australian music, would be quite pointless...

Re: Possible Falcon AD

You could always have a guy trading in his Gen3 dunnydore to the tune of 'lemon tree'

and then have him driving away in an XR8 to the tune of
Metallica's 'Fuel'...you know...gimme fuel, gimme fire gimme that which I desire....
