Tire Advertising: The Good, The Old, and The Really Strange

When you love tires the way we do, you appreciate a really good tire ad. Some of our favorites have been the Superbowl ads, including: the one with the beaver, the one with the squirrel, and the one where the guy hits “Reply All”.

Humor always makes for a great tire commercial, and these international ads featuring a an unfortunate gymnast and a reminder to appreciate good traction prove it.

Some funny old school commercials include an elderly tire customer with a return and explain what tires did for Cinderella.

For all of the funny tire commercials that have been made, there have also been some really strange ones. This ad for “Wide Boots”  uses bizarre costuming and weird choreography with a nod to a 1960’s classic hit. This one raises the serious issue of tire problems when there’s no man around.

Hopefully the marketing masters are already working on some great new ads for the next Super Bowl, because we never tire of a good ad!
