    ‘No the cars not fast, I’m talking about the phone.’

    Wow, the Checo ad is pretty embarrassing. The Vettel ad is actually one of the funnier F1 personality ads I’ve seen.

    It is properly cringeworthty and it was on a hell of a lot around the time of the Bahrain GP!

    Button made one too, it is up to his usual standards.

    Eddie Jordan talking slightly more sense than usual in this ad for Eircom:

    Sebastian Vettel’s been practising his razor-juggling:

    What I really don’t get about the Braun one, are the random shots of Zandvoort around the 10 second mark with the Red Bull clearly not actually being there, but the drummer and the smoke are.

    And of course letting the German voiceover do the English commercial as well.

    Regarding the Zandvoort shots: at least it’s not as obviously fake as the Infiniti commercials, but I still don’t understand why anyone would look at that and think “Yup. That’s a Formula 1 car.”

    Reminds me how tidy the short-lived Braun-sponsored Tyrrell-Hondas in 1991 looked:

    Tyrrell-Honda 020, 1991

    Now there was a team that couldn’t hold onto a sponsor for more than five minutes.

    That picture means my avatar makes me look like a Tyrrell fan rather than a Sauber fan.

    I think it is a great idea to get a driver like DC involved with road safety, and that approach is good, but I can’t help but feel the unrealistic motion of the car he is ‘following’ takes away from the serious nature of the message.

    That one certainly has an FIA smell to it.. but anyway, it’s for a good cause.
