Car ruins an otherwise slick Acura ZDX spot

Acura's got a pretty stylish teaser ad airing for its new ZDX model, but a lot of the spot's charm ends where the car begins. As a service to Acura and parent company Honda, AdFreak has compiled viewers' real-time reactions into five key take-aways: 1. The woman is attractive. 2. The Acura is ugly. 3. The Acura looks like a Cadillac, which is not to say it is attractive. 4. The term "four-door coupe concept" is damn confusing. 5. The song is cool. We have little to add ourselves, except that the soundtrack is "Pa'Bailar" by the South American electrotango band Bajofondo. Also, that car is ugly.
