Fiat’s new ad features Godzilla

Published by on May 6th, 2014, No Comments

GODZILLA fiat

One wouldn’t really think of the Fiat 500 as a ‘monster’ car. In fact, it’s probably one of the smallest cars available on the market. However, the new Fiat 500L has got a little more bulk to it – enough bulk to take on Godzilla.

The monster then proceeds to gobble up two Fiat 500’s. However, when he spots another Fiat 500 – not realizing it’s the all new Fiat 500L – he has a bit of trouble. (more…)

BMW i8

While we have known about the BMW i8 for months now – the much anticipated Hybrid electric luxury car has finally made it’s official debut at last week’s New York Auto Show.

The i8, which serves as both an electric and hybrid car, is definitely one to draw attention. However, besides it’s sleek modern and somewhat futuristic looks, the car is actually a celebration of what modern, green technology can bring to the auto industry.

The car features an astonishing 362 horsepower. That’s quite the powerful car. It combines a 3 cylinder petrol engine with an addition electric engine which obviously attributes to the car’s high horsepower. (more…)

We all know the game of Jenga. The game where you remove wooden blocks stacked on each other one by ne and hope and pray that you are not the on to cause the tower to come crashing down.

Well, imagine this game being played on a greater scale – and by greater scale we mean super large blocks being moved by huge Caterpillar machines instead of humans.

This is exactly what the company has done with their latest advertisement. Under the tagline “Designed to get it done no matter what it is”, the huge Caterpillar machines, which include an Escavator and Telehandler, play a friendly game of Jenga.

The ad is shot beautifully and it is actually really interesting to watch. You’ll be on the edge of your seat once one of the machines pulls out two blocks from the bottom row.
