Jeep busts in on Elvis, Devo and John Locke

This Jeep spot by San Francisco agency Cutwater really makes you run the gamut of emotions. On the one hand, it’s always sad to see products digitally placed into historic footage, such as this ad’s use of the Berlin Wall collapse and a clip of wildlife preservationist Jane Goodall. Then again, I crack up every time I see the Jeep bust onto the set of Devo’s “Whip It” or ride across the sands of a certain mysterious island. If nothing else, I was impressed with the wide range of footage, none of which could have been cheap to license. That’s why I also chuckle when the lyrics say: “How much does it cost? I’ll buy it!” Via Ads of the World.
