Oh, Honda... you've done it again. You've tortured me so much over the years with the sounds of children and sheep butchering songs, that dopey 2-note piano intro, and fugly spokesmen. Now, this. Just grossing me out. A whole city of refugees from some third rate Lego knockoff cartoon.

You know what, Honda? Go to Hell. Just... go... to... Hell. Thumbs Down

From the front, it really looks like Acura NSX, the new one. It's appropriate since Honda owns Acura, and besides it's a really nice complement! Now to the commercial it's looks like somebody had Minecraft on the brain for way too long.That's what the square heads remind me of. Minecraft is a pretty cool game too.

This "Blockheads" ad might be funnier if it were about Volvo's.

Yes, Honda bores us again..except I just had to stop at the point where the kid is looking at his own reflection in the car door, so I could see what HE saw (maybe a normal kid?)

I have never seen the whole commercial until now. Usually they cut out the part with the cars that can't move because of the square wheels.

I think it's supposed to either be "think outside the box" or "We aren't squares"

Or maybe "Blockheads like our cars".
Bad commercials feed my rage.

Not a bad-looking car.  I like the color.  Still, it's not that different from lots of other cars out there.  If they wanted to be different, they could've gotten a Citroen, or maybe a VW Thing, or maybe an old Renault Dauphine.

That reminds me of an episode of Mythbusters years back. They tested square wheels on a truck. It was possible to move but it gave a really rough ride and I think it ruined the treads. It's really impractical!
