Gordon, what GM needs is more than advertising. Bring back the cars that were sex objects themselves. Give me a '50's Caddy with Dagmar Bumpers. Too young to know about that? Read this wonderful article from Hemmings Motor News:http://www.hemmings.com/hmn/stories/2006/10/01/hmn
I don't know, as a woman I see the dude in the ad and he looks like he is about to drop the chick. So I would see this and think that a guy who owns a Buick is rather weak and can't support a woman. Thus, I would not buy a Buick, nor would I date a man with a Buick. So the ad does a disservice to the product it is trying to sell, and a disservice to the men who have bought a Buick. Perhaps I am over thinking on a vintage ad....
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
