Last season, a year or so ago, when some Kia vehicles were burning up on the highway. Wife and I saw a KIA sales commercial ... a KIA was driving down the road.

The little jingle audio in the background: 'Light up your holidays with a KIA.'

That's a boo-boo the advertising agency missed, I'll bet. We saw it once only. We cracked up at that PR error. Timing is everything!!

Many years ago Chevrolet started advertising in Mexico. At that time the Nova was all the rage. Almost no sales in Mexico. Appears Nova means “ no go” in Spanish.

I like the RV brochures that show a family of happy campers around the fire, with their brand new RV parked on a pristine, grass covered waterfront site with NO neighbors, roads, etc. anywhere in sight.

Honda has a current TV commercial for their Talon side-by-side. It's a pretty good commercial, showing the Talon driving and the happy campers sitting around the campfire near their (2) large toyhaulers...with nary a tow vehicle in site![emoticon]

Did you think they would show one of the big three trucks in a Honda commercial, LOL.

A little off subject but funny (sad) in a cruel way:

1977, Linda Ronstadt performs live at Tennessee State Prison singing her hit song "You're No Good" to a . . . . . . captive audience . . . . . oops! Yes, it actually happened and it's on video at YouTube.
