Watch Our 5 Favorite Honda Commercials Ever

January 16th, 2018 by

“The Big Game” is almost here, and that means it’s time to get psyched for the 100-plus commercials that will air. For about four hours, you’ll get to lay your peepers on some of the most expensive ads on TV—a 30-second spot typically costs north of $5 million—as well as some football. While you wait for the kickoff on February 4th, check out our list of the best Honda commercials of all time. Can the lineup of 2018 car commercials beat them? (We doubt it.)

5. Matthew’s Day Off “Game Day Commercial”

Whether you know him as Ferris Bueller, Sloan’s creepy father, or Abe Froman, the sausage king of Chicago, Matthew Broderick’s finest performance may be packaged in this Honda commercial. All the best pieces from the 1986 film are here, including an ill-advised performance in a parade and the “you’re still here?” ending we’ve grown to adore. What’s new is the 2012 Honda CR-V, which makes for an excellent buy today as a used SUV. Take a day off and come check out our selection of pre-owned Honda CR-Vs for sale in Columbus.

4. Respect the Van

Hilarity ensues in this clip, which stars numerous quintessential 80s-era panel vans. Watch them wreak havoc on a nondescript pier, peel rubber on an empty warehouse lot, and crash through sketchy aluminum fences. We don’t recommend putting your new Honda Odyssey in the same situations, but it could probably handle them with ease.

3. Meow is the Moment

It’s not often we mention the superlatives offered at other Honda dealers, but we’ll make an exception for this one in Ontario. (Give credit where credit is due, right?) Their Honda cat ad purrfectly spoofs those “Now is the Moment” commercials we’ve all seen during the summer. If you’re ever having a bad day, give this clip a view.

2. Honda Yearbooks

Last year’s popular Honda commercial featured a handful of celebs, including a mustache-clad Steve Carell, an awkwardly dressed Jimmy Kimmel, and Mr. Comic Book himself, Stan Lee—all before they hit the big time. Fun, funny, and inspiring, this car ad just had to make our best-of list.

1. The Cog

Although video geniuses OK Go have perfected the complex Rube Goldberg setups to draw in viewers, some may say that this Honda commercial for the Accord (wagon) put the trend into motion. Who knew two minutes of auto parts moving around could be so appealing to the senses? That’s why it ranks as our #1 favorite Honda video.
