Did I see what I thought I saw on tv

Recommended Posts

I  was watching  tv  the other night  when a   Duritos   commercial  came on with  the  Rapper and a pink  airplane  in the  foreground   I   swear   it  was  the  Matt and  Debbie  Hayes  Thunderbird  has any one  else seen this  commercial. Correct me if I am wrong .

The long version of the ad is on youtube. Some great footage of the T-bird driving down a runway at the start of the ad. 

I think one or two of the other cars in the ad were in magazines back in the '80s or '90s too.

Okay, I just spent 30 minutes on Utube, and could not find this video.

What am I doing wrong? My search terms must be messed up.....

I have seen this a few times. I don't get it. Furthermore, would this rapper guy even know what the Matt Hay Tbird is? Maybe he just likes it because it is pink. I just laugh at the stupidity of it all. Maybe that is the point....

The cars are just props for an ad pushing junk food.  I think it was originally an ad that aired during the Super Bowl, those ads tend to be...different

I'm willing to bet it being pink fit this commercial, but also may have had a Gen X or older car guy involved in the planning what cars were going to be used.

This  is an excellent example of why there is a mute button on the YouTube player. :lol:

I muted it before it even started, loved seeing those cars.

Chance is smart. I bet he’s seen that car before and I bet he learned about it on set! Probably really appreciated it.

A commercial not aid at me. The music was okay. The cars were ugly.

Great to see the T-Bird is alive and well, and runs too. :D
