Hyundai. Rhymes with Sunday.
But not with "Sontag" and "日曜日."
Someday in the future, perhaps an Indian or a Chinese automaker will depict an angry Korean executive shocked at the success of the upstart's entry into the luxury car market. And, yeah, that might raise my ire just a bit, especially if I own Kia or Hyundai stock. But in the meantime, this Hyundai Superbowl ad made me laugh:
Oh, and I might seriously getting a Hyundai Genesis Coupe when it comes out.
May Hyundai have a repeat of last year's successful Superbowl ads.
The whine cellar at Marmot's picks apart the ads (it doesn't help that Marmot's own headline is a bit of an exaggeration methinks). Apparently the one with the faux BMW and Lexus execs is "borderline racist."
