Its actually stated...Van, myth, legend. Its just an unbelievably amazing vehicle that has everything a man could ever want in a van. Kinda like too good to be true....But that's one interpretation.

It´s like Homer SImpson´s web.
The worst spot i have seen in all my life.
It´s almost makes me cry.

Come on, guys. I have made the mistake of seeing the spot for the second time and you have made me cry.
It's so tacky, poor, incomprehensible and painful that I have seen in my life.

I also think it's kinda boring.

Black panther is no longer a cool idea now, even not cool in late 1990's.

I think that's kind of the point, though isn't it? They're trying to reach guys who grew up when this stuff was cool. To them hair bands & black panthers were the "glory days." They have kids now & drive minivans but that doesn't mean they can't still be cool.

Good point.

Probably this ad was specially tailored for them, so it could be quite effective.

Thank you!

I think it would be very nice ad where the radio was the only communication tool....

The tune sounds familiar, at least the opening bars. Is it an actual song?

Judas Priest, Marshall, back of a van? I love this commercial!... I want that car!.... I want to be famous!.....
Man, I think I'm in the wrong business.......

Nice attempt to take away the whole "soccer mom" idea out of people's heads and bring back the coolness of owning a van.
Loved the fact they used Judas Priest's "The Hellion" as the soundtrack, hehe
