Old Car Commercials

Watching old commercials on YouTube never ceases to amuse me. Old ad campaigns remind me of a time where you could give a product a futuristic or cool-sounding name and it would sell like crazy!

The above statement is especially true when it comes to car commercials. I like to picture a sales team sitting around a table for days, brainstorming and drinking coffee for hours on end, and ending up with a car named "The Chevrolet Celebrity".

Aside from the names, most of these sales techniques don't have anything to do with the car they're selling. Companies can't get away with this nowadays!

I'll let the commercials speak for themselves. Enjoy!

  5. Wow, old commercials are really bad. I guess this applies to everything, though; not just cars.

  6. I really do love the old American muscle cars, they do look great and run fast, not through corners though.
