Lotus Elise TV Commercial - Enjoy!

http://www.commercialspots.net/coyoteRv/lotus.html

Here's a TV commercial a friend of mine shot for a local RV Dealer. He used my car and my truck for the shoot. It was a little nerve racking letting her drive my car but I think she did a pretty good job. Let me know what you think!

Wow, that commercial is really subtle!

Gotta play negative nancy here, but I don't think the model was all that hot.

One question for the legal eagles here - can these guys get in trouble for using the Elise? Meaning, wondering if they needed to get permission from Lotus to do it.

Besides, what were they selling? Seriously though, I remember (in this order):

1. Elise
2. Boobies
3. Some camper van thingie

I don't think you need permission to use a car as a prop. It isn't detrimental to Lotus to be sure.

I think her legs were already out of the car, but it looked smooth none the less.

Does anyone know whose Elise was in the garage flooring commercial I see on Speed Channel every now and then? I think it's a CO and may have been in a print ad for the product as well.

To some she looks good, to other she doesn't. It is just the way of things, different people have different taste.

The local valupak coupon mailer has an ad for an automated car wash down the street and it has a Lotus exactly like mine in the ad. I have no idea of who owns the car, but I sure hope they didnt run the car through it.

Well, I watched it 7,346 times, and I thought it was pretty good.

Oh, the campers, too!

Yeah she was rather smooth getting out of the car. But you should have seen her the first time. And the second time. And the third time. We actually got there early just so she could practice getting out. She got better and better rather quickly but some of you have noticed that her feet were already out which helped a lot.

I've got Polk speakers. I need to paint the covers black because I don't like the silver look but they are too hard to take off. One of these days...

Small world...I work with the woman driving the car. She tells me the blooper reel would be great, like when she climbed out but forgot to put the car in gear or pull up the e-brake and it started rolling away.

You're a good man to loan your baby.

Guys in the market for pop up campers probably don't find supermodels appealing.

Thats a lot gear(in the picture below the video) to make that little commercial. It's a pretty cool ad though I guess, hey how about some pics of the girls in your avatar realdeal!
