A new story entry has been added:

[drupal=2512]Video: GM "Beautiful Blue" Olympic Television Ad Features Saturn Sky, Flextreme[/drupal]

Quote:
If you watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics Friday night, you saw the General Motors television ad that caused quite a stir in the Saturn community over the weekend. The sleek, red Saturn-badged vehicle that flashed across the screen at the end of the commercial had folks asking, "was that a Saturn?" Indeed, it was.

Nice Ad. I think the music fits well. I don't think I've ever seen an all brand GM commercial before. Hopefully people noticed the Saturn badge. I never realized how good the Flextreme looked in red, probably because I've never seen one.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Agreed! I thought the ad was very well done, and the music really went well with the story being told.

I've got some pics and information of the Flextreme - including the red one - online here:

Enjoy,

Yes, the corporate ads are few and far between and this is the first that I can recall where Saturn was part of the ad. Kudos to GM for FINALLY getting the importance of Saturn to the overall picture. I do agree this was a very good ad and shows they are on the move to better products than what was in the past.

Secondly, why oh WHY must Chevy be the ONLY product getting ad spots during the Olympics? I would think this would be the time to promote all the divisions including Saturn and the new Astra with it's rave reviews and decent gas mileage. Let people know GM has the small gas mileage cars outside of Chevy's Aveo to compete with Toyota and Honda.

Sorry, just my general frustration with GM promoting a division that doesn't need more promotion or the Transverse when the Outlook, Acadia and Enclave are covering the market just fine.

Default Re: Video: GM "Beautiful Blue" Olympic Television Ad Features Saturn Sky, Flextreme

The Flextreme is gonna be one good looking little car.

I also saw the commercial that featured the Traverse and the Camaro. The Traverse is just like the other GM crossovers, so no surprise there, but the Camaro is one awesomely powerful looking car as well.

Good things coming GM's way.
