This isn’t the first time a trackside ad has been hit by one of IMSA’s low-slung racing prototypes and then refuses to let go. They’re tenacious little things! It never ceases to be hilarious, either.
To maximize profit, tractor trailers need to stay on the road for as long as possible. So to show off the performance and reliability of its vehicles, truck-maker Scania had 14 of its vehicles, manned by 90 drivers working around the clock, circle an empty airport for 24 hours straight to create a gigantic real-time…
Cats are all over the London Tube. Judging you.
If you’re in an employment transitional period and experience the thrill of daytime TV, you’ll likely have noticed infomercials that prey upon the broke and uninformed with jingles that convince you to hand over your grandma’s social security checks for one lump sum of cash. If there’s one thing to learn, it’s that…
Dealerships and car manufacturers are already less than honest (if we’re generous) and wading through misinformation just makes it exponentially worse. We can help, though. Here are some of the most misleading, dishonest, or outright false things you’ll hear when buying a car, and the truth behind them.
Companies go through insane lengths to give their brands the right image. Whether for a hardware store or a taco truck, there’s always a car perfect for the job. These are the ten cars that should represent your businesses.
Every year, when a new tech product is announced, the world divides into two kinds of people: people who line up to buy the New Shiny Thing, and people who rant about how New Shiny Thing sucks. Both of those groups of people are chumps. Loyalty to a brand—whether it’s love or hatred—is a poison that makes you stupid.
There’s no better way to make an excruciatingly boring day feel even longer than with a round of golf. Watching it being played is even worse, unless the golf course happens to be on the back of gigantic earth-moving equipment. Now you’ve got our full attention.
The brands have spoken, and they want you to know that domestic violence and sexual assault are bad. In fact, the brands not only think they’re bad, but have a theory as to why they persist: the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault don’t have a strong enough brand. So, to help get America talking about these…

Let's play a game with Nissan advertising and the NISMO Le Mans race car.
In a bit of an ironic advertising controversy, the same city that allows prostitution ads to be handed out on its resort-lined boulevards has rejected some ads from the Sharper Image which show Heidi Klum and her partially clothed, but concealed 41 year-old body. Heidi is apparently too hot for Vegas' McCarran Airport.
Now that the children of the '80s are all grown up and have lots of expendable income, companies have realized that nostalgia can be a great marketing tool. That's why so many toys are being resurrected and re-issued, and why Honda is now selling cars using the likes of Skeletor, Jem, and even Stretch Armstrong as…
When KLM ordered its 747s in 1969, the airline wanted to give its passengers an idea of how massive the plane actually was. So they took something familiar and applied it to the plane in a way their Dutch customers could relate. The end result was this creative, compelling illustration.
I'll tell you when I first realized that we have a serious problem. It was just a few days ago, when I came up behind a car in traffic with one of those enormous plastic license plate frames. Printed on top was the name of the dealer – something like "ANDERSON MOTORS." And on the bottom, in the same enormous font,…
I know the 1980s were confusing, but can anybody explain why a Toyota Corolla would set loose a bunch of white mustangs?
The advent of CGI has allowed us to realize things on-screen we never thought would be possible—from living, breathing dinosaurs, to giant transforming robots. But it's become so over-used that over-the-top practical effects now draw the biggest wows from audiences, like Lexus' use of countless LED-suit clad stuntmen…
Life is strange and unpredictable. Some things have to be seen to be believed, and even then it can be tough to trust your own peepers. Take Milan’s Piazza Mercanti, for instance. It recently became home to what appears to be a submarine bursting through the asphalt. Wait, what?
KIA Canada has some new ads out that double as helpful Public Service Announcements about how if you get in their cars to drive and you decide to use that time to multitask and put on makeup, the car will kill you. Death sells!
SRT (you might remember them as part of Chrysler, but now it's sort of its own brand, even though everything except for the Viper is really just a hot version of another Dodge or Chrysler or Jeep, so just go with it) just debuted this ad campaign explaining what it really means to love the motor vehicle.
