yesterday I saw a Pilot ad on tv for the first time. It was during "24" (on fox).
Showed a pilot woth two bikes unable to get throught a low tunnel so they drive below it on the mountain. Not bad (specially compared to other Honda ads):D :D :D

I have seen them a few times down here. Speaking of "24", I thought last night's episode was GREAT. Can't wait for next week!

There seem to be a few indications here and there that Honda may be stepping up its advertising of the Pilot. Maybe to give a bump to the 04's coming out?

I saw a Pilot ad during NYPD Blue a couple of nights ago (I think). The ad depicted a family atop a hillside, camping, having fun. At the end of the ad a small child said he was going to watch a DVD. My wife and I thought that the ad itself was pretty uninspiring.

This is an old ad - I've seen it several times. I think it might be the the ad running at the Super Bowl.

I saw my first Pilot ad last night. I liked this commercial, however, because it definitely relates to families. If we had the RES, I'm sure my kids would ignore the outdoor fun to go watch Harry Potter or something. I can't believe it was the first time I've ever seen a Pilot on TV or in print. I was excited.
I would like a cool driving commercial, like the new XC 90 with the cool music, or the Mitsubishi Endeavor rolling through town. My 3 year old thinks thats our car on TV. EEK. Hope he see's the new Pilot commercial, just to set him straight.

My son saw this: He said the first time he saw that ad, the Pilot left the road at the tunnel on the right side of the screen, then reented the road from the left. After that, it had been corrected and Pilot went down and came back up on the same side of tunnel.

Old Pilot Ad

Anyone remember the first Pilot ad late last spring? It never showed the outside of the Pilot. It was shot from the inside as it went up a steep hill. Rain and mud hit the windshield as the wipers tried to keep the window clear. At the end, an announcer said something about a new SUV coming soon from Honda. I only saw it a few times.

I remember the ad from last summer where the really dirty guys jump in a black Pilot with leather and one of them pushes one of the control buttons (radio, a/c, can't remember) with his muddy finger and the mud stays on the button. I think they had been playing soccer or something.

I DID see one then

I saw that one too, I didn't even realize it was a Pilot commercial...wasn't shopping for one then.
I think the guys were riding motorcycles...my husband would have loved that commercial!
I wish we could view all commercials and print ads at the Honda website.

Sounds like a real winner. I hope the Pilot focus groups that Honda has been conducting lead to a more inspired marketing campaign than we've seen thus far. :mblah:

Saw the 'bikes on roof' Pilot ad last night on Animal Planet and also saw the new one 'civilized on road and capable off road' a couple of days ago.

Beyond the Pilot ads....what do you think of the new Nissan ads. I like most of them (the ads that is), and saw a new one for the new Maxima yesterday while watching part of the Masters (I think).

<ad> this guy drops an orange from his grocery bag and it lands in the gutter near the front tire of a parked Maxima. He places his hand on the front fender of the Maxima to get leverage and then sees a 'vision' of all the things that the Maxima can do. When he snaps out of it, the orange is squashed and he's out of breath.>

good commercial

I disagree....I think there have been and continue to be very creative, interesting car ads.

One that quickly comes to mind featured a guy and girl slowly driving thru the streets of (looks like) Paris in (I think) a VW Passat with the radio playing a rhythmical tune. The couple are sort of taking in the sights along the street--street vendors, shopkeepers in front of their stores performing various tasks, etc.--when they come to realize everybody's moving to the beat of their music. The guy and gal just look at each other...and one of them says, "That was strange!"

A bit quirky, but one that I thought showed some appealing creativity.

ok I generalised....my bad...guess the bigger car companies do have lousy ads though...GM, ford , toyota sure have uninspiring ads.... (so I am generalising again);)
