Last decent Cadillac ad was the Kate Walsh CTS ad of 2008, though must admit I kind of think the new Escalade ad "Fame" is kind of funky.

Is Cadillac ashamed to show of their cars?
I like the Caddy's new motto "There is no effort without error and shortcoming".
Not.

I often wonder what high paid executives think when they approve many of the ads we see each day. It is absolutely amazing to me that such trash exists and that these executives commit millions of dollars to them. That being said, THIS IS THE WORST AD I HAVE EVER SEEN FOR ANY PRODUCT. I have had several Cadillacs and love my current CTS, however this ad shows me that that the people in charge have absolutely not idea what they are doing because, it does not relate to most, if any at all, buyers of their product. What it tells me is that I should be patient while they figure out their problems. Who the heck is watching the store at Cadillac? Someone should be watching the store!!!!!

Ugh, this needs to be linked to the [Worst year for Sales] thread. I think it was supposed to be inspiring; one of the most depressing car ads I've ever seen.

No way that's the new Cadillac ad. Somebody has been duped. There were Fords and Jeeps in the background. GM, let alone Cadillac, wouldn't allow a competitor's car in their ad. There was a Saturn in there, too....which is no longer even made. Yeah, someone's been duped.

graphicguy, I hope you are correct and even if you are the question remains. Who is watching the store?

It is also on the inside cover of the April 2015 edition of Motor Trend magazine. I wish they would bring back the Led Zeppelin Cadillac commercials.

I think they're trying blend all the screw ups into a nobody's perfect subliminal message. Depressing.

Egg on my face. I never thought that ad would see the light of day. They had glimpses of an old Ford Explorer, an old Saturn Vue, what looked like a new Dodge Dart in that ad. I don't recall seeing ONE Cadillac. IF I were Cadillac, I'd want my money back from the ad company. Dare To Be Great? That ad wasn't even mediocre.

Let's see, hiring away the Infiniti person, and an ad campaign like this, and saying "Dare Greatly"...... a recipe for success?.....not!
