Hyundai is rolling out a new advertising campaign with a twist: the host of the commercials is trying to hypnotize you, right through the computer screen.

These ads are for the Hyundai i30, or as we know it in America, the Elantra. They feature professional hypnotist Peter Powers, who does his best to hypnotize any consumers daring to watch the video. The video features a disclaimer that assures you ”Peter Powers has performed the hypnosis with suggestions of a positive and fun nature, a formal procedure for the removal of hypnosis and with no instructions to perform unlawful, negative or unseemly behavior.”

Powers’ sow, calm voice tells us to fall in love with the i30 and that the headlights look like eagle eyes and the tail lights are just like the wind. It is clearly a little bit sensationalized for entertainment, but Hyundai is probably counting on some weak willed people to be enthralled by Peter Powers spell and run out and buy a new i30.

You can see for yourself whether or not the hypnotization works on you by clicking here.
