Re: Rant: What is up with the car-ads that try to make cars "cool" for one race?

^^^ Heh, that original Mazda3 Zoom-Zoom ad (the one with the dude who is dreaming about meeting the twins in Chicago) actually turned 2 people I know away from buying the car...

It was discussed briefly here:
http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=5384.0

If I remember correctly - the two people who were turned off by that ad said "what the heck - they want you to think only retarded materialistic people buy that Mazda3?* Maybe the car just looks nice and is really just a piece of crap.* I'll go get a Civic instead."* And they did get Civics... go figure. Too much "zoom-zoom" and not enough talk about what made it a good car to own..... and having a good reason to own is pretty important to most people.
