At least Cadillac acknowledged the mistake they made with the Cimarron with it's entire 2 second display.

My how times have changed. I think I remember that commercial. It has it all: polo, explosions, back seat hanky-panky, guns, overtaking a Mercedes. Great piece of advertising. :D

The Mercedes overtake was THE best part of the clip, IMO.

Well, if we're doing throwbacks, here's a few I was able to dig up:

Gotta love the sunglasses...

From their '74 marketing blitz, still trying to figure out why Arnold Palmer is playing tennis though, regardless I still wish they were the "resale leader:"

And this one is just for shits and giggles... Oh how I wish GM would air this one... (Disclaimer - it's not for the faint of heart!) I love it:

OMG, now that "Cadillac Style..." tune is going to be stuck in my head for days... That was a good, and totally 80s commercial. The other one I really like is the one where it's like a timeline and one car morphs into another one. It was pretty recent, can't remember if it was for the XLR or the CTS. I disagreed w/some of their inclusion choices, but it was still cool.

And here's really cool one...volume is a little soft, though. If you look really really close, you'll see what I mean.

It sounded like Johnny Cash....

The '67 Eldo = ultimate goodness. The bustleback Seville...not so much...

And that is a big jump in design. To go from that Seville to the XLR-V...??? They should have at least stuck the '92 STS in the middle.

Why on earth did you post that stupid German drink one... I mean, the Lee Trevino one was bad enough... I specifically wanted to spare our fine fellow denizens...

What's funny is that twenty years later you see what those cars have turned into, how much they're worth and who owns them now.

I love that one too!....just shows you the true passion of owning a Caddy...since we got the STS, "my truck" has become my wifes truck (unless I need to pull something)

I loved the part where the Brougham just roars up to the camera like the behemoth of the fleet that it is, awesome......
