Hyundai Canada Unveils H-Factor Persona During Super Bowl

It has been no secret in Canada that we have long been cheated out of the opportunity to watch the highly-produced, ultra-expensive Super Bowl commercials found on the United States stations. Prior to videos being streamed on the Internet, Canadians were provided with few opportunities in ever seeing the original advertisements shown during the world-famous football championship game. This year, some advertisers in this country may have begun to realize the chance they have to make a marketing splash made possible by simultaneous substitution. For 2015, a record Canadian viewership for the "The Big Game" were treated the television premiere of one intense ad campaign from Hyundai.

A 60-second spot starting with the text "Wake up to a New Hyundai", the car commercial introduces what Hyundai calls "The H-Factor" that will drive their vision heading into this year. Presenting visuals of their latest cars such as the Genesis sedan and Sonata, Hyundai's vehicle development stages were highlighted with laboratory and track testing. Additionally part of the ad was a drifting Genesis Coupe and Hyundai's long-time spokesperson Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge near the end of the Super Bowl spot. Throughout the dynamic new Hyundai H-Factor commercial, the song "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons pulsated. The creative development of the commercial is credited to Innocean Worldwide Canada who has been behind many Hyundai and Kia Motors ad campaigns in the past several years.

Proclaiming that "A new Hyundai is emerging", president and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. Don Romano explained that the H-Factor campaign is to gain recognition for award-winning feats over the years for the brand. Romano states the H-Factor campaign marks "a four-pronged strategy". The successful launch of the new Hyundai Genesis and Sonata, ensuring vehicles are housed in world-class facilities, the implementation of "Hyundai Signature Certification" and grabbing the attention of potential buyers are ingredients to this new brand philosophy.

In addition to airing the commercial during the Super Bowl, Hyundai's H-Factor will be made apparent on Canadian telecasts of the Grammy Awards, Academy Awards and breaks part of popular prime time shows. Since Sunday, 60-second and 30-second version of the ad has been released on TV screens as well as the displays for other devices.

  Photo Credit: James Gilbert/Getty Images untitled On Wednesday of this week (May 5 th of 2021), NASCAR will formally present the sport’s newest Cup Series chariot. Originally called the Gen 7 car before adopting the moniker of the Next Gen car, the vehicle was initially planned to be part of the 2021 racing season but was pushed to 2022 due to the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 disrupting development as well as team finances to implement the Next Gen car.

Morbid Motoring History: Transaxle of James Dean’s Porsche 550 Spyder Up For Auction

Photo Credit: Porsche AG untitled More than 65 years after James Dean’s fatal highway crash on U.S. Route 466, a verifiable piece has surfaced of the vehicle involved in the ill-fated Porsche 550 Spyder the 24-year-old actor drove in his last moments of life. Through an online auction being held on Bring A Trailer , buyers with a desire to obtain a rather ghoulish gearbox. The Porsche 550 Spyder was one of the first purpose-built race cars assembled to establish a name of what was once a small sports car located in Stuttgart, Germany. A derivative of Porsche’s 356 production car, the 550 Spyder’s compact, lightweight stature (the 550 was in reference to the vehicle’s weight in kilograms) combined with a mid-mounted 1,500 cc flat-four engine proved almost instantly superior in competition.

Six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon topped the lists of many analysts after he captured the race’s pole position . Dixon’s #9 Chip Ganassi Racing’s Dallara-Honda posting the fastest time in Friday’s Carb Day practice only solidified the logic of picking the New Zealander to win. Other names favoured for having the best chances to drink milk in Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s victory lane included Colton Herta, Rinus VeeKay, Alex Palou and Alexander Rossi. Besides Scott Dixon, it is surprising to conceive after the 2021 running of the 500-mile greatest spectacle in racing that another more veteran name wasn’t immediately entered into top contention prior to the green flag. Unlike the COVID-19 delayed 2020 event that ran on August 23 in 85
