Loved every bit of it and William Dafoe's presence reminded me of the adorably evil GREEN GOBLIN.

It's not amazing. But not horrible. I think it will sell some cars.

That's one ugly car. And I agree the spot is pretty similar to the Renault commercial.

Was good until that horrible voice over at the end. Wow, what was that?

The commercial is pretty good! The idea is a bit different comparing to the Renault one, I think. The only connection is the devil...

Excellent commercial from start to finish. I am amazed with the ripoff comments since this is obviously a completely different idea, not to mention the comment that tops them all about this being an ugly car. Lol, do you even have a driver's license?

I'm with you on this one Temple. Outstanding job overall. I also love the fact that the setting for the Dafoe scenes are at my favorite bar in the Big Easy, The Napoleon House. And did anyone catch that the directors first name is Dante?

I have a license. And apparently much better taste than you. Such is life.
