Classic CM: 1977 Mazda Cosmo AP

Don’t you wish car commercials still had a unique jingle for each model? Not only did the 1977 Mazda Cosmo AP (aka Mazda RX-5) have its own signature tune, there was a whole line of fashion accessories, including a belt, tie, umbrella and man-purse. What else do you expect from the height of rotary-powered luxury?

    It looks like three commercials, for a horse race, a car, and old school man swag all crammed into 30 seconds!

    Take a few stills from this one and you have the perfect ad from the 70’s, as seen in Road & Track.

    Did anyone else notice the horses weren’t real? They just glide past the camera without any up or down movement at all.

    @LIncoln Stax-I didn’t really pay much attention to the horses, as I felt they were irrelevent and somewhat stupid! The first part of the commercial made no sense to me!

    You guys may think you have plumbed the depths of how Seventies this commercial is, but allow me to take you a little deeper: that’s Helen Reddy singing the jingle.
