: new V-series Superbowl ad

01-31-05, 10:17 AM
Cadillac is making a big push during the superbowl featuring the V-series cars.
Here is GM's description of the commercial:

" Each of the three vehicles is shown slowly backing up into a
dark tunnel until only the headlamps are visible. The spot opens on a XLR-V parked on a mountain road. The vehicle slowly backs up into a dark tunnel which is carved into the mountainside, almost disappearing, only to be seen are its two headlights. The same sequence unfolds as the CTS-V and STS-V also wedge themselves into urban and cobblestone tunnels with only the headlamps visible. The spot cuts with mounting tension to each of the three tunnel openings, everything is still. Next a rapid succession of sounds is heard followed by a shot of each vehicle barreling out of its tunnel. The spot ends as the voiceover says, "Bang" followed by a succession of black screens reading "The New Cadillac V-Series. 3 Cars.
0 to 60 in Under 5 Seconds."http://cadillacforums.com/forums/images/smilies/peelout.gif

All I can say is " Yeah baby! That's what I'm talking about!!"

John Travolta:hmm: ???? Well, I guess he better than Fabio:histeric:

I noticed this on the STS-V page: http://www.cadillac.com/under5/under5.html

"... STS-V sports a 440HP* 4.4L Northstar V8 SC..."
* Based on preliminary testing.

I think they used Travolta because of that movie " Get Shorty" where he played a NYC mobster who wanted to rent a Caddy when he came to LA. Instead they gave him a pontiac minivan that he referred to to as the "Cadillac of minivans".

0 to 60 in Under 5 Seconds."http://cadillacforums.com/forums/images/smilies/peelout.gif I LOVE your emoticon.

Also, I was surprised to learn from a survey of the CTS-V owners that only like 5% are over 60. I just turned 60 and don't chirp my tires much anymore, but I still have enough testosterone (thank God) that I love that feel.

Anyone notice in the "That Fast" commercial that the G meter starts showing some sideways force? I wonder why . . .

Somebody else my age !! I'm 58, going on 40 !
"They" don't like us, here. They call us "Old Farts"
and "GrandPa" and one even say "we" are all gonna
die soon. :devil: But...worry not, their day will come,
and their kids will be calling them old farts, and they
won't like it, either.

Nobody that drives a 400 hp car and shifts their own gears can be called an old fart. It's a rule.

Grandpa, maybe. But that's always been a term of respect in my family.

I'm 58 and hardly consider myself old. I did just have my first grandchild. Driving on Bascom Ave. at lunchtime today (San Jose) another black V pulled up next to me and wanted to hear my Corsa exhaust. Of course, he now has to have it. Meanwhile, Travolta is perfect, but I like him better as the argumentative Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction. I am looking forward to the Caddy Super Bowl Commercials.
