Los Angeles Ad Town: Super Bowl Edition
Watching so many back-to-back automotive ads during Sunday night's Super Bowl, I began playing the game "Spot the Downtown Los Angeles image." Downtown Los Angeles has long been a frequent setting for car ads, but this brought it home.
Here's a sampling of last night's Super Bowl car ads, all of which below were shot in downtown:
Kia Optima ad ("One Epic Ride")
Chevy Camaro ad ("Miss Evelyn")
Mercedes Benz ad ("Welcome") In case you miss it: There's a scene where the cars go through a tunnel, with neon on the right-side wall. That's in downtown.
BMW Advanced Diesel ad ("Changes")
Chevy Cruze ad ("Status")
Hyundai Sonata Hybrid ad ("Anachronistic City")
