Honda Odyssey spot must boggle young minds
Once again, I'm just not getting a Honda Odyssey spot. (Click here to view.) The last time I whined about an Odyssey commercial it was because the company was using a Parliament Funkadelic soundtrack—or something close—to advertise a mini-van meant for soccer Moms who are probably young enough to think George Clinton is Bill's long lost brother. This time around, the soundtrack is Heart's "Barracuda," accompanied by all of that silly mystical imagery that was all the rage back in the 1970s. (Blame Yes, if you want to.) If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then I bet you also never knew that Ann Wilson used to be skinny. Oh, right you probably don't even know who Ann Wilson is. Here, I'll help you out, but I think my point is made.
