Clever Advertising: The Honda Hands Ad

Though the Honda Hands ad has been around since this past summer, it’s definitely worth another look. And, if you haven’t seen it, it’s a “must watch” that will keep you engaged for its entire 2 minutes duration. Enjoy!



I didn’t think Honda could do any better than their famous “Cogs” ad from 2009 (shown below), but they’ve definitely maintained their uncompromising level of quality here. it’s not often that I am blown away by creativity, but this Honda Hands ad engaged me and kept me watching to the very end, just to see what would happen next. Perhaps your experience will be the same.

    This wonderful ad might explain some of the “WOW” factor that keeps my family and I returning to Honda Motors. We have been proud Honda owners since 1980. That has included two Accords, three Civics, and one Prelude; all stylish and highly reliable vehicles.

    The last time I was this mesmerized by anything was sitting in a movie theater watching Avatar. Amazing idea, execution, and result. Please let us see more! Definitely would love to do this kind of work some day.
