Saturn Side-by-Side-by-Side Test drive
 
I was torn whether to put it into the other cars forum, or here (being a video and all)

But I found a few hilarious Saturn Commmercials
















I laughed for at least 10 minutes afterwards. Saturn is really balsy



This is just funny, old- but funny.



........:rolleyes:

There's also one of a Foriegn dealership across the street from Saturn with giant signs and Huge Balloons, you know: buy our cars!
then Saturn just puts the North American Car of the year award in the dealership's window, and waves across the street.

The kitchen sink kills me.

Dragon since you have a a knack for finding old things. Can you try your hardest to find me an old superbowl commercial.

I believe it was '96 or '97 when a new Nissan vehicle was (re)introduced. It was either the Maxima or Altima.

The commercial showed this car leaving the car wash and driving home. Unseen by the driver, there's a 'squadron of pigeons' flying above. The pigeons have leather bomber helmets and goggles with scarves on and radio to themselves that the "target is aquired(I know I spelled that wrong)". The pigeons begin to start plopping trying to hit the car as it turns it's way on a casual drive home from the car wash. The bombs start hitting everything in site, including a buffet table until the punch bowl at the very end of the table almost explodes. Finally the leader of the pigeon begins to dive bomb trying for a kamikaze run. The nissan pulls into thed driveway and into the garage still unaware of anything happening and closes the garage. The pigeon doesn't realize that the garage door is a wall until it's too late.

*insert loud thud here*.

That's most of the commercial, but I hope someone remembers it, and better yet can find it online. There's your homework for the week Dragon.

Thanks in advance.

Heartbeat
 
Speaking of commercials, I have been looking for video (or even audio!) of the old "Heartbeat of America" commmercials from the 80's. There was one in particular that had an Electric Blue IROC-Z cruising around menacingly.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I might find a copy of these commercials?

P.S.
 
Dragon: I love those Saturn commercials! General Motors needs to make ALL of their vehicles at a level where they are not afraid to have a "side-by-side-by-side" comparison with their competitors.

I can't see any of them from work...might have to try again from home.

Here's a clip of all the heartbeat commercials.

I must have this for my external hdd viewing pleasure! Can someone help me find a way to capture the video clip?

Do you have Mozilla Firefox? If you do, go here and install this add-on. then go right to the You-tube page the video is on, and click the icon, right click the button it gives you, and save-as. Save as a .flv file. then you'll need to find a flash player. This is the best way I know of without buying anything. If you want I can e-mail you a good Flash player and converter...https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2390
