ZZ Top! Honda! Who'da Thunk?

We know we plugged Japander yesterday, but we have to go back and highlight a spot by the men who are probably the most significant celebs on the site, in car terms: ZZ Top. And they're not plugging some sort of Coddington-ized loonmobile, either. In fact, it's the sub-sub-sub compact Honda Z. Needless to say, the Right Reverend Billy G. was not cruising down the road in his V-8 Ford that particular day. If this ad went nationwide in the US, we get the feeling that concert attendance among the band's core constituency would severely drop. By the way, we should point out that Billy is a very nice man and we like him a whole lot. And after all, he bought Lester Bangs a whole wardrobe. Ah, what dichotomies we weave, no?
