1979 Sedan deVille d'Elegance
I love it! Sign me up for a Regency! Check out the Caddies rolling by on the Dan Ryan.
That ad's premise is quite similar to 2009's "A Serious Man". Too bad the character in the Coen brothers film didn't have a happy Honda ending.A couple more commercials that I use as examples in my advertising class. Sorry for the crappy quality; these were taken from a VHS tape back in 1997, and I haven't been able to find either spot anywhere else on YouTube.
Rick will be shocked — shocked I say — by my inclusion of this brilliant Jeep commercial:
YouTube- Jeep Commercial -- Top of the World
I drove a Honda Accord at the time this commercial came out in 1997, and as someone who often has several things go wrong at once, I could certainly relate (and was grateful that I could at least depend on my car):

Rumor has it that the Cohen brothers directed this and a similar series of ads for Honda.
