Neat. Definitely not after the rock crawling crowd with that ad. I wonder if they will take a little heat for an unsecure dog on the front seat?

Had not seen the clip.

My wife informs me that, for the G1, Ridgeline owners also make up the greatest percentage of dog owners (per capita) among truck owners.

I was hoping for a different ending:
1. Quick shot of the calendar pages turning
2. The guy's phone rings
3. RL parked again in front of that same little girl's house (the dog's owner)
4. Dog surrounded by puppies
5. Guy picks up a puppy as girl, her mom, and the dog look on approvingly
-- Fade to black --

I know this will make my daughter cry.

Yea, it's pretty clear who their target audience is .
Not sure why they didn't show him delivering the dog house to the owners as a gift.
Great looking truck though ;)
Surprised the guy wasn't eating a gluten free muffin while sporting a hair bun :grin:

Or

They show the truck still in the driveway at night, then the sun rises, the guy leaves with a big smile on his face >:)

That's interesting. How did she get that information?

She's a high-level marketing exec, an active participant in SMEI (she often gets to critique commercial campaigns before the public sees them), and she occasionally has access to quite a bit of market data.

The correct nomenclature is "top knot."
And I think it's as stupid as you do.


I think the ad was for women as the subject matter has absolutely nothing to do with the vehicle.

Exactly why I've been lurking on here for weeks and had not joined. In my home town it take a 3/4 ton monster tire truck for a HS kid to make it to class apparently or risk being stuck for weeks. I'm at a crossroads: Need a new truck as a daily highway commuter 50 miles rt and twice a month bass boat hauler under 100 rt miles on flat intestate. The new F150 was the truck till I discovered this one by accident and now have to figure out how not to get my butt kicked while at the local gas station AND not get my butt kicked by the college town Honda dealer buying it............and believe me they are selling them...............pretty quick to the Chapel Hill professor crowd that would have given the lady and little girl the truck with the dog just so it didn't get PTSD and just gone and bought another one 4K over sticker.

I'll be asking a lot of naive questions in the very near future.

ask away. Many people with the new G2 will be glad to help and those without a new G2 will also be glad to help (me). If we don't know the answers, we can make them up! >:)

Hello neighbor. I didn't realize that if you live in Haw River, you have to commute by 3/4 ton pick-em-up. I'll have to keep that in mind next time I'm in your neighborhood. :D
