There was a time when a lot of car ads looked pretty much the same.

Then you would throw in some adverse weather conditions, the odd explosion (because that happens a lot in deserts), and some imagery (a horse maybe).
Thankfully, there are plenty who have broken the mould. In fact, you only need to look at the Viral Video Chart's global ads chart to know that car commercial are now among the most watched on the web.
