...not the Christmas decoration donut one, but a new one evidently continuing on from the original one that blew our socks off many months ago.

(sorry, no posting...that is all)

EDIT: Actually not the original one, but the "UFO" one after it. Essentially, it is what the continuing shot would be where the UFO one cut-off, with an updated "Challenger thoughts" dialogue stuck on.

Give this link a try...

I know- I suck, right?

If nobody else has it, I will get around to re-encoding it and uploading to YouTube so a link can be made available...

I'm almost certain somebody else is going to put it up on YouTube within a few hours, anyway. So I'm not inclined to make a mad dash to make one of my own, when it's going to appear by somebody else inevitably.

My wife said that she saw a new one last night that she has never seen before. That must be the one randycat99 is talking about. :scratchhead:

I'm pretty sure you're in a select minority with that impression.

The last thing I want to hear is a middle aged man talking about the challenger. I want to see some T & A with some Van Halen music. I am approaching old fart zone and don't need this viagra poppin' voice reminding me that soon I will be wearing diapers.

Same Here X100. Song: "Panama" from the beginning, cut up with shots of the car and girls. It's perfect for the Chally. Hire me Chrysler, I'll show you a commercial you'll never forget:thumbsup:

armkat, perhaps you should be listening to the message the voice is delivering rather than just fixating on if the voice connotes youth? :p The kiddies (aside from a select few that are atypically wiser than their age) are not so interested in the Challenger, since they don't get it in the first place.

Besides, isn't Van Halen awfully played-out by now for the Challenger demographic? Perhaps it was cool when their music appeared in a 90's Nissan commercial with Ken and Barbie dolls...and what about the Pepsi commercial? I don't think they really bring anything "fresh" to the table. The younger ones outside the demographic would probably be wondering who the hell is "Van Halen", altogether, and what's up with the old kodger music?

No...I think the marketing campaign theme for their commercials is exactly on-target. The Challenger is a warhorse from a different age for people who recognize that America has lost a critical piece of its identity, and there are only a few remaining who understand what was lost and how the Challenger ties into what has been lost.

The marketing theme is not flashy, doesn't really lend itself to throwing T&A into it, and doesn't even call for catchy background music. It's just a frank, honest, and candid voice telling you that there are indeed others who share the vision that your inner voice has been telling you all along. Dodge salutes those people by bothering to make a car for those who still carry "that flame" from the golden age of American cars.

Now would I reject a marketing production involving a Challenger and Katy Perry singing California Girls in Candyland?...I think not. T&A doesn't get more overt and scrumptious than that. ...but there would still be a little part of me that realizes that is just not what the Challenger is about. ;)
