Honda - Mud Flap

February 05, 2006 | :30

The pinup silhouette on the mud flap of a truck comes alive in this Super Bowl XL commercial from Rubin Postaer and Associates.

She admires the Honda Ridgeline pickup on the opposite mud flap, then finds a fellow road warrior at the wheel: Yosemite Sam. 

“Even those who have spent their entire lives around trucks," the voiceover concludes, making sense of the premise and turning it into a pitch, "have never seen a truck like this.”

Honda was a frequent but intermittent Super Bowl advertiser over the years, although consistent as far as RPA went. The marketer and agency returned in 2007 with "Elvis."
