Super Bowl Commercials: Hyundai Veloster Turbo Does Thing My Ford Festiva Can Do

I am going to spell out the basic concept for this commercial before you watch it, because the concept is dumb. Basically, a Hyundai Veloster Turbo is lined up on a runway next to an angry, caged cheetah. The cheetah will be released from the cage and will engage in a race with the car. After taking three strides, the cheetah realizes that it is slower than the car and gives up. This is supposed to be a metaphor for how fast the car is. It then attacks the guy who released it from a cage. Here's the commercial.

According to my second grade science teacher and my favorite PBS program featuring the Kratt Brothers, cheetahs can run up to 70 miles per hour. I once owned a three-door 1987 Ford Festiva that could go 75 miles per hour, so this is not impressive, Hyundai.

Be sure to check out Super Bowl ads from previous years that would never air in 2012.
