This 1987 US Nissan commercial was posted by Reich and it clearly illustrates why cars and Flashdance don’t match:

WTF were the Nissan executives thinking in the 80s? Apart from the fact that flashdance and cars don’t match it is also weird to have such a commercial in the late 80s when flashdance was clearly out of fashion. Now if they would have come up with the Lambada it might actually have caught the attention of the teenagers. ;)
