Do you have some time to kill? Well, then perhaps you can watch a solid half hour of Japanese Suzuki TV spots, ranging from 1978 to 2000, ranging from sincere to zany and selling everything from scooters to off-roaders. Michael Jackson even makes an appearance in some of them. These commercials make me regret losing Suzuki in our market even more.
With ads like these, you can see why Suzuki is the third best-selling marque in Japan, behind Toyota and Honda, and ahead of Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, and Mitsubishi. Alas, they left the US market in 2012.
