Commercial Time: Riding hi, Suzuki Alto Works CA72

June 11, 2014 in Commerical time by banpei

I had a big WTF while watching this Suzuki Alto Works CA72 ad. In a typically 80s Japanese style the Alto is announced with a big Liding High, Alto Woks:
Commercial Times: Riding Hi, Alto Works CA72
Disclaimer: I’m not trying to mock the Japanese here and we all know they have difficulty with foreign languages like English. The funny part is that the ad is lacking the R and high is spelled hi. Now it feels like someone is saying hi with the Alto Works. ;)

Commercial Time: Honda Today Pochette

May 28, 2014 in Commerical time by banpei

Pochette is a French word for a tiny square shaped handbag for women, so the Honda Today Pochette is supposed to be the automotive handbag for women?

In the Pochette you can barely fit anything except a wallet and maybe some female accessories so perhaps Honda was spot on here. ;)

Commercial Time: Nissan Silvia Varietta convertible

January 16, 2014 in Commerical time by banpei

This Nissan Silvia Varietta S15 (GFS15) convertible commercial makes you wish the weather would alternate between sunny and rainy all the time!

In my opinion the Varietta convertible actually looks better than the normal S15 coupe! Autech really knew how to do things right in the late 90s!
