Ken Block – Gymkhana Five – Ultimate Urban Playground

These videos just continue to get more and more fun!!


The (Almost) Invisible Mercedes

This video blew me away as it encompassed all of the major interests in my life. Automobiles, Technology, Marketing, and Future Green Tech.

This is a great marketing ploy by Mercedes to get people interested in Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology, personally what I believe to be our next huge leap forward as far as renewable transportation technology. Now if only we can get the automotive and oil companies to release their death grip on the rights to this technology that will spell the end of the big oil company control of this planet. <endofsoapbox>

Something Everyone Loves – Sexy Italian Things – Fiat 500 Abarth

Being a communications graduate, one thing I am always in the mood for is a good advertisement. And if you know me, a provocative car advertisement does not get any better.

When I first came upon this video for the new supercharged Fiat, it implanted itself deep into my cerebellum and made me want to do all of the most American things I could image. Which are as follows:

  • Go out and buy a ridiculous car.
  • Imagine that this car would bring pleasure to my mundane lifestyle.
  • Have secret confidence that this car would attract a forceful ferocious foreign female (as depicted) and my life would change for the better. Like for forever.

But more importantly; after seeing this Fiat ad, it proves once and for all that you do not need to be JLo, a retired housewife, or, let’s be honest, a homosexual to own a Fiat 500. You just need to man up, learn how to properly handle a stick and go get some clutch action.

So good on you Fiat. Good on you. And men, if you are looking for a pint sized sport hatch, you need to look no further than your nearest Fiat dealer.

If you are not so much in the market for an unnecessarily awesome two door sports hatch, you can check out the great marketing ad from last years Toyota Minivan. For all you kid hauling dads out there.
