Sunday Ads special Super Bowl 2010: Bridgestone ‘Your Tires or your life’
We thought the Bridgestone commcial for the big game was okay, just not as fun as the fantastic “screaming squirrel” from last year. But it looked oddly familiar : the 80′s sci-fi look, the young couple being stopped by a bunch of thugs at night on a deserted road, the challenge “your… or your girl”… It’s the intro scene of The Wraith! No PPG/Dodge “Turbo Interceptor” MS4 here, but a mashup of parts and pipes that reminds of the Delorean from Back to the Future. It could have been funny to have Charlie Sheen do a cameo in there (after all, he’s already doing commercials for Hanes…).
We have to salute the good 80′s movie car culture from the creative people behind the commercial though. Who knows, maybe The Wraith gets some renewed popularity from this, maybe even a Hollywood producer gets his wheels turning and we get a remake in 2012? That could be kind of cool, what do you guys think? Leave your comments!
Check out the commercial and a montage from The Wraith below and see by yourself!
UPDATE: Bonus! Watch the hilarious ‘The Scream” commercial also after the break.
