Skoda 'Pimp My Ride' Commercial Features Xzibit

Few true car enthusiasts are able to respect MTV’s Pimp My Ride, but that hasn’t kept it from being a hit with the kids. Big shiny rims and bigger, shinier, TV screens are all it takes to aim a teenybopper’s attention toward a car.

Regardless of the mechanical merit behind the show, or lack thereof, the once-hardcore gangster rapper turned TV personality, Xzibit, quickly became a poster boy for tricked-out transformations. If that image proved one thing since it’s inception in 2005, it’s commercial marketability.

Something about the lowriders of Long Beach and bong-rattling bass that seems to accompany is a recipe for sales success, which is something Volkswagen-owned Skoda Auto of the Czech Republic seems to be aware of.

In one of its latest ads, the automaker features a nerdy-looking white guy pulling up to an obvious imitation of the Pimp My Ride garage called “Czech Coast Customs” and saying “Mr. Xzibit, could you fix my car? Please?”

In seconds, the car is mutilated and dragged out with sparks flying. Then, in typical fashion, Xzibit pulls a cloth off the kid’s new ride, a Skoda Yeti. Watch the commercial below, it’s pretty funny.

Aston Martin Loves Women In Its Latest Ad Campaign

There are plenty of exotic car commercials that feature sexy women… but how many out there are targeted to a female audience (and we’re not talking about minivans and SUVs that go after soccer moms)? We’re talking about a cool car for cool women – and that’s just what Aston Martin is going after in its latest spot.

Tilted “Aston Martin Loves Women. Women Love Aston Martin,” this 87-second long featurette is made for the woman who appreciates automotive beauty and performance. You won’t see any girls in bikini tops sprawled on the car hood with a hose in one hand and a wet sponge in the other. What you will see is a DBS drawing admiration from a variety of different females as it makes its way through the streets… and none of them is in a hip-hugging mini skirt.

This one’s going out to all the ladies who love a fine automobile. Watch the ad after the jump.

Lexus Teases First Ever Superbowl Ad [Video]

As a lead-in to a range of new products planned for introduction this year, Lexus is putting together its first ever Superbowl commercial, which will air during the first half of this year’s game on February 5th on NBC.

The almost Super 8 esque 30-second commercial, centers around the new 2013 Lexus GS, which officially launches in February, as well as emphasizing future products to come (catch a sneak peek below).

In the run up to the Superbowl XLVI commercial, Lexus is also launching a social media activation tool called “TweetDrive Engineered by Lexus.” This airs live on NBCSports.com and will provide football fans with the opportunity to put both their knowledge of the game and social media skills to the test during the actual Playoffs, according to Lexus’ vice-president of marketing Brian Smith.

The objective is for each fan to gain enough yards on the “field” so their “team” can score a touchdown, by providing the correct answers to both trivia and predictive game questions, using a Lexus TweetDrive hash tag.

For every Playoff game in which fans play TweetDrive, they are entered into a draw for a grand prize, which is a trip for two to any NBC Sports Premium Event.
