The Insight: Better ads than car

Posted 8 years ago by Adam Gautsch

We linked to a very cool Vimeo ad for the Honda Insight a few weeks back, but now the reviews of the actual car are out and they aren't very good.

With gems like

So here goes. It’s terrible. Biblically terrible. Possibly the worst new car money can buy. It’s the first car I’ve ever considered crashing into a tree, on purpose, so I didn’t have to drive it any more.


So you’re sitting there with the engine screaming its head off, and your ears bleeding, and you’re doing only 23mph because that’s about the top speed, and you’re thinking things can’t get any worse, and then they do because you run over a small piece of grit.

I can't see many people wanting to drive this car.

When y'all posted that video, I quickly skimmed some of the reviews and comparison to the Prius. None of those reviews were nearly so harsh. I somehow doubt that the Insight is nearly as bad as Clarkson made it out to be.

Is there a career in finding funny reviews? You know that guy knew his review was funny and all the credit he got was, "Thank you for your review!" or "We value your opinion." It's tragic, really, all the funny comments posted around the internet that go unnoticed, unlaughed at.

Word of the day? Unlaughed
