WOW. That's not an ad, that's a whole application.

Nice "iAd" comic application ... but I wonder how many people will click on it to see this ad.

Anyway, the happy few will be very surprised.

All that for "Enter your email for a chance to win"?

If it takes 3 1/2 minutes to explain a 5-chapter interactive auto-PacMan comic then I'm not optimistic. Though they did accurately explain the feeling of their action inside their own ad:

"Yawn, stuck behind a truck".

wow. they are really doing advertising for their advertising. if you take away the (nice) presentation and just look at the app, it's rather weak

I think they're trying to do something that goes viral (since that's the buzzword in everyone's marketing department). This does seem like the kind of video that people would share, he's a clever character (a sort of amalgamation of various personas in today's society -- witty, professional, urban, likes comics, cars, women, etc.). Overall I think it will be successful in getting the word out about the Juke (because I didn't know about it before this).

Only downside is it's an iAd rather than a website or some place that everyone can experience it. It's unfortunate that the experience ends there for the majority of people who don't use an iPhone. Get a website up pronto!

Yawn. Maybe they should have spent more time making the car less damn ugly in the first place instead of spending soooooo much money on this whole campaign... sorry, of course I meant GREAT, GIVE YOUR AGENCY MORE MONEY!
