BMW have always had astonishing commercials. Recall the “Bullet Commercial” that was released less than a month ago. It was amazing, to advertise their M5 as the fastest sedan available they compared it to the Bullet of a gun. The M5 features an amazing V8 Twin turbo charged engine that was already discussed on TheAdsGarage. For the Olympics, BMW found as usual a nice idea to promote the German athletes while showing their last new born, the magnificent M5. The commercial was shot on the sands of Wales. Several episodes of top gear were filmed on their. The beach is amazing for car drifting. This commercial is simple, original and straight to the point. Enjoy!

Introducing the Mazda2, sport edition. The small compact hatchback by Mazda. It features a 1.5 liters engine delivering 100hp and 98 ft-lbs of torque, just enough for a small trip around the city. But today, it is taking a small trip around the Wall of Death, a wood-paneled motordrome. The stunt was achieved thanks to the small size and light weight of the Mazda2, the centrifugal force and the expertise of “Dynomite” Dave Seymour of Demon Drome. Dave is a professional rider who has been practicing a century old extreme sport, riding the Wall of Death.
This ad actually shows how light and compact the Mazda is. The motordrome is originally designed for motorcycles to ride on it, not cars. But the Mazda was able to fit in the arena and perform the stunt. Dave took the car for approximately 8 laps on the wall, driving at 50 km/h while experiencing a 2.5g g-force. I really liked the ad, it was a good idea to combine the Mazda2 and “Dynomite” even though they come from totally different worlds. Mazda really tried a very challenging stunt/ad and succeeded. Hope the ad campaign is that successful as well. You can check the Making of “the Mazda 2 vs Wall of Death”.
