I hope no one posted about this yet. I searched everywhere and found no existing thread yet. The shorter version of this ad has been running around the clock, especially on cable news channels. I just don't get it. So many people on YouTube claim to like it, and it just makes no sense to me. So, we have a British sailing/racing team caught on foot for an unknown reason in the middle of a sandstorm, in the middle of the desert, picked up in a brand new Land Rover just in the nick of time by their team captain (I'm guessing that's who it is), while apparently running late for a sporting event at a nearby marina that happens to be adjacent to the supposed desert?
People are dumb.

To accomplish a shred of reality the team should have arrived at the marina with the Land Rover hanging from a tow truck hook.Wink

And I hope they brought a fresh air filter!
This expensive $UV probably even has a cabin air filter.  SHUT-UP!!

It's like a Pentathlon or 'Nordic Combined Events' - multiple sporting events by same contestants on same day. Everybody's doing it - I even knew someone who dropped dead in one and she was cute! Such a loss.
Nothing unusual.

I agree. This commercial gets old very fast. I love the Strauss waltz, but not every 5 minutes. And the sandstorm/yacht race did not make sense to me until I read a post on this thread. Too esoteric.

I think they are trying to convey that the Land Rover goes everywhere you want to go.  And that Brits really like their Land Rovers.  And that Brits think they are very special when they drive a Land Rover.

So,the "economy model" is $85,650???

Even if I hit the lottery I wouldn't pay that much for a vehicle.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Neither would I, but I'd sure make a run for the border and order up at Taco Bell!
