I got the email and clicked the link with anticipation.
Not exactly making me want to buy one... even though I will
Sure the GS will be great for "dad getting the kids pizza" but to look as lame as it did was sad.
I remember being in school and one of my mates dad's had a MK 1 ZS. Electric Blue.
To a kid it looked awesome.
Then a few years ago I bought a MK2 180 and realized that it WAS awesome and that Gordons old man was genuinely a petrolhead with family sensibilities and I respected him all the more for it.
I'm not a dad yet, but I know that when I do become one I wont loose my love of cars. That advert screamed "I've given up" rather than "get set".
For one thing the car driving around is going slower than the beat of the music.. driving around a culdesac at 15mph cautiously does not make good TV.
And I'm sorry but that Orange is absolute cack... Very dissapointing.
Still its perhaps not as bad as the old ZT advert
But when they have the Sherlock advert...
which shows the GS in a much more desirable light, why spend money on that drivvel.
