CLASSIC CM: Honda’s “Impossible Dream”

While we’re on the subject of the UK and adverts, here’s one of the best, Honda’s “Impossible Dream”. In fact, we can safely say that all artists can just retire now, because never will anything so beautiful be created again. The soaring music, the cinematography, the exhaust note of a 1965 Honda RA272 – it’s all an epic symphony of internal combustion. Seriously, turn up the volume and get your tissues ready because if this doesn’t stir your soul, we’ve got some bad news – you don’t have one. In fact, we like it so much we’re adding it our permanent Video section. Watch the hi-res version here and visit the corresponding website here.

    I love this commercial. I saw it about a year ago, but it will never get old. Dare I say, greatest car commercial ever?

    And I’m not even a Honda fan!

    Paul – well, we did have talking crabs in that Element commercial.

    Bob – no argument from us!

    Yeah… when I saw this a couple years ago, I was in awe. And wanted to immediately go out and buy a Honda product. I’m normally not affected by advertising… but man. This one pulled on ever single gearhead heartstring in my body.
