How The Utes Were Won: Holden Spot Traces Pickup-car History

Atop a sound bed provided by Melbourne's own Jet — a band that knows its way around a royalty check, having become a raspy accompanist to the iPod, Vodafone, TV's Alias and the big screen's Spiderman 2 — is this history lesson from GM's Holden. It's a one-minute retrospective of Australian utes — that is, pickup-cars — from the farm to the city streets, as told through the miracle of period casting, CGI programming and the obvious, but workable strains of Aussie garage rock. We're a stone-cold sucker for a fuzzbox, a 'camino and a tasty hook. (Thanks to Brett for the tip.)
