Super Bowl Too Commercial? Edition

Folks, it’s Super Bowl weekend. That may hold little or much significance for you. Whether you enjoy football or are indifferent, the Super Bowl ads are almost usually the talk of the game.

Here are some of the unedited auto-related ads that have been released:
 
Here is Kia’s Walken closet: The bottom line is this: Do you wanna be? A you know, a Beige sock?

Here is Mini’s Clubman offering that Defy’s Labels is well done.

Hyundai went all out this year in the celeb game, too, to tout its tech: town of Ryan Reynoldses. 

Hyundai also has a Kevin Hart spot. 

And the bear chase spot showcases the technology.

Consumers can also blast off with Audi’s 205mph R8 V10 Plus. Great music and great moments.
 
Honda’s Ridgeline teaches sheep to sing to Queen, one of my favorites:

Out of this bunch, I have to say, the Walken closet is my favorite followed by the R8.

But, I think that the 2012 Star Wars Volkswagen commercial is still one of the best Super Bowl ads.

But what do you think? Have a better automotive Super Bowl commercial to share?
 
Post your comments and or commercials here:

RECALL ALERT:


Honda:  Honda is recalling more than 2 million MORE vehicles for Takata inflators. Expect notifications in the early summer.
 
Mazda:  Mazda is adding 19,000 more vehicles to its Takata inflator recall for model years 2004-2006 B-series trucks.

Toyota/Lexus: Toyota and Lexus are recalling vehicles for inadvertent airbag deployment.  Toyota is recalling 32,000 vehicles. Look out for a notification in your mail box.

Continental claims 5 million vehicles worldwide may have faulty airbags.

My Final Thought(s):
 
Let’s have a moment of silence for the passing of a young a brand. Scion is dead. And Toyota killed it.

Scion was supposed to be the youthful, fun division of Toyota.  And the first gen xB was proof of Scion’s edgy spirit. We had such hope then. And then, through (criminal?) neglect, Scion wasted away. Toyota, in furtherance of its beigeness will absorb and rebadge the models. You died way too young and didn’t have nearly enough, Scion.

2. How you doin’ Top Gear? Friend Joey—fine, Matt LeBlanc—is joining the cast of Top Gear. This could be great news for the show and for Matt who loves cars and driving. In fact, the clip above shows him in the “Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car” where he posted the fastest—and unbeaten—drive time on the show.
