Cadillac Style: Let's Go! Let's Live!



My favorite part is when the polo-playing dude douses himself with water while sitting on the hood of his Caddy and two women jump up and down in excitement. You used to see scenes like that all the time in Flint. The two dim-witted housing developers who almost blow themselves up is also pretty cool.

  1. The guy with the shotgun reminds me the most of Flint.

  3. I think there should be a device on your computer to click it into slow motion so that old people like me can discern what's happening in such rapid fire action advertising. What Mercedes? What dancing girls? I watched it 3 times. The older folks are the ones buying the caddies. Not me, but I like to dream...unclebuck

  4. Uncle Buck, this rapid fire commercial style is hard to break down. I think think the clever marketers at GM were shooting for near subliminal advertising. I'm ashamed to admit I found this commercial so ridiculous I watched it about 20 times. I've practically got it memorized now. So the haughty woman passing the Mercedes is at the 38 second mark. The polo guy with the girls is at the 45 second mark.

  6. I agree with the quick flash editing style... although there are much faster ones now....

    After viewing once, I came away with this montage of thoughts... girls, grill, bling, cadillac... so I suppose that could sell some cars.

  7. Don't forget, Grumkin, that explosion = ejaculation. Add that into your montage.

    I'm confused, why is it attractive to add dog smell to a car?
