Best Big Game Car Commercials 2018

Posted by Poquet Auto on Feb 6, 2018 2:07:17 PM

Did you tune in to the Big Game on Sunday night? Whether you rooted for the Eagles or the Patriots (or neither, as a proud Minnesotan), it was an exciting game down to the final seconds.

It was also another good year for car commercials.

Here’s a roundup of our favorites. (Like one we didn’t list? Mention it in the comments!)

Kia Stinger

Getting in a Kia Stinger is transformative. At least it is for rock and roll legend Steven Tyler.

Emerging from a trailer parked at the center of a racetrack, Tyler puts the Stinger in reverse to go back in time and regain his youth and adoring fans.

Even if the Stinger can’t bring us a crowd of adoring fans, we’d anticipate at least a few looks of envy with its impressive specs. The GT version boasts an impressive 365 horsepower, and a twin-turbo V6 engine.

Did you catch the Beatles-like secret message? Watch the video backwards here, and listen closely at 0:54. Then, you can scroll through youtube and go down memory lane with some of Tyler’s greatest hits.

Toyota: Good Odds

There’s not a car to be found in this ad. Instead, it focuses on Lauren Woolstencroft, a para-alpine skier from Canada who has won 8 gold medals.

Odds of winning a Paralympic gold medal are close to 1 in 1 billion. But as we see Lauren grow up and take on physical challenges, her odds become better and better, until she crosses the finish line of a gold-winning race to the odds “1 in 1.”

The spot ends with a call to “start your impossible,” and Lindsey telling us that “when we’re free to move, anything is possible.”

Toyota is a sponsor of the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This ad has us excited for opening ceremonies this Friday.

Jeep: Anti-Manifesto

Poking fun at commercials like Toyota’s, Jeep came out with an “Anti-Manifesto” for its spot.

There are no bold claims about what the Jeep brand “means,” or causes the brand “cares” about. Just footage of a Jeep in the wilderness, performing pretty incredible feats of agility.

It may be a few months before you can drive your Jeep up flowing waterfalls in Minnesota. But this commercial definitely has us feeling the road trip itch. Maybe we can load up a Jeep with cross-country skis and head north. For the non-snow enthusiasts, February might be a great time to road-trip south. Texas anyone?

Lexus LS 500 F Sport/ Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Commercial

Need a sweet ride for your next superhero mission?

If you’re the Black Panther, the Lexus LS 500 F is your vehicle.

The title character of the Marvel movie out February 16th uses a Lexus to secure the vibranium, outsmart the bad guys, and make a sweet getaway, arriving unscathed at the World Leadership Conference.

“Long live the king,” the spot intones, and we can’t help thinking we’d feel like royalty in that vehicle.

Needless to say, there are a number of impressive vehicles on the market this year.
