If you watch enough TV, you’ll know that there’s a fair share of car adverts involving winding roads, a lot of grass and a middle aged man looking very happy with his shiny new car. Well, we’re not interested in those – we’re looking at the 11 best car adverts of all time. Expect cake, hamsters and loads of babies.
#1. Volkswagen (1996)
You know when there’s something in your car making a funny noise and you can’t for the life of you work out what it is? Well Volkswagen made a pretty good advert out of that annoying noise back in the 90s…
#2. Honda (2005)
There’s more to car adverts than a good car, as this advert proves. Hiring a good choir, for example, can be the perfect way to get your message across.
#3. Skoda (2007)
We love cake, you love cake, everyone loves cake. This video features a car being made out of cake. That is all.
#4. Volkswagen (2007)
A car advert should make you want to go out and buy a car. And we don’t know about you, but we’re thinking a VW Golf is looking like a pretty good investment right now.
#5. Vauxhall (2005)
Remember this one? Vauxhall’s Little Dads advert is some of the best yet simplest car advertising we’ve seen to date. Because what is not to love about a couple of children pretending to be middle aged men?
#6. Peugeot (2002)
There’s not many car adverts which feature cars being smashed up, but that wasn’t going to stop Peugeot when they came up the ‘The Sculptor’. It’s a clever marketing campaign, but we wouldn’t recommend trying this at home. No one wants a Peugeot 206 that badly these days.
#7. Vauxhall (1996)
Back in 1996, someone decided to get loads of babies together and put them in the same room. Sounds like a living nightmare, right? Yes, but it made a really, really good TV advert.
#8. Honda (2003)
And finally, Honda have gone and done it again… pure genius.
