Ok, I get Honda's whole, "Hey, buy our cars, because they're very good for the environment, and if you change the oil every once in a great while, they will run FOREVER" thing... Really. The point has been made!!!
When I say Honda is onto something, I guess I should be more specific, because I'm not talking about the cars. I am talking about their ads! FOR REAL!! THEIR ADS ARE BRILLIANT!
A long time ago, I posted about this ad, which is a complex Rube Goldberg design built entirely out of car parts, which is insanely cool!
And then today I found a few from the current campaign that just really got me laughing (Which is important when you're in a job-searching funk like I am!)
There's this one, featuring a crab named Gil, which is an extended version of a commercial I'd seen before...
And then there's this one, featuring a platypus which I hadn't seen, but laughed heartily at!
And this one featuring an opossum which I also moderately enjoyed. (Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that opossum sound a little like Alec Baldwin in the very beginning, and a little more like Keith David there at the end... Hell, it probably really is Keith David!
And then there is this one featuring a rabbit, which I didn't find all that funny, until I considered that it is a pretty nice little tribute to Kelly and her broken foot right now! (Nello, you should've listened to the rabbit... he would've told you in advance about the between-toe chafing!)
You all probably think I'm advocating the purchase of a Honda Pilot right about now, but really I'm not. I don't like them. I think they are ugly. But if that's your bag, it's cool. We can still be friends. I just like them because they give me a little giggle!!
In an unrelated note, I want to thank you all for your support, and positive thoughts, and to beg you to keep them coming! You are all some seriously hot bitches!Keep it real, homies!!
