All Five Of The New "Transform Your Ride" GM Commercials

14 posts in this topic

I like the slogan.

Ditto. Pretty good, fun commercials overall, too. Optimus saying "My bad" was totally wrong, in a funny sort of way.

Here is my favorite print ad.

If this movie hits as big as I suspect it will this will be GM's best marketing move in years.

I missed the Transformers growing up only by a few years. But I never realized their impact on so many in the 35 and under crowd as it is staggering. Even kids down to 6 years old now know what the Camaro is and every time he sees a yellow car he asks if it is a new Camaro.

With the way this is set Transformers 2, 3, 4 can't be far behind and GM can ride the wave of a movie that may have a impact though not as large but similar to Star Wars or ET.

The only negitive is if I buy a Camaro my kid will want me to forgo the red I want for Bumble Bee Yellow.

The only thing missing from the commercials is that distinct transforming noise from the 80's cartoon. :lol:

Ahhhh...THAT is what that car is! I thought I recognized that back window ;).

I KNEW it wasn't a Cobalt ... I sensed it was a 4-door car that was crushed ... while the Cobalt was a coupe! Heh.

As for the commercials themselves ... interesting, but, I don't know that I like 'em all that much....

Gets a little boring if you see all of them at once. 3 of the 5 use the same animation for the "silver SUV" or "silver car".
