Only in America

But none of the Americans?

Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

Is Halloween only important to the Germans in America?

I had a totally different topic in mind when I started writing this post. The post would have had the same title as this one, as I was going to write about Audi’s American ad for diesel cars. To get the joke you either have to be American or be aware that diesel cars, especially diesel premium cars are not too common in the States.

Then I stumbled upon some Halloween-themed Audi ads. Pretty funny ones. So I started looking for further ones made by car manufacturers. Surprisingly, there aren’t many of them. And I have only found videos made by German companies (yes, Mini is a German company, as it belongs to BMW). I just couldn’t find a single ad with a Halloween theme for an American brand, only ones made by dealers, but those are rubbish.

Fuel economy is a trick to get more treats.

The Audi Lantern.

Be aware: monsters are out there!

Hey witches, broomsticks are out!

The Countryman saves you from the scariest little monsters.

There’s room for five people. Well, not seated.

Dear readers, do you know of any other Halloween-themed American car ads? Chevy-skeletons, Ford trick-or-treat?

We escaped by the skin of our teeth

We made the transcontinental trip to Sweden all right, we could even start the engine and take the car for a short run, so I bought it. Was I to know about the problems lurking ahead of us, I’d have decided otherwise.
