GALLERY 14: Volvo - Water Hazard

The intriguing thing about this clip is that it doesn't feel like a car ad until near the end. Spared are the cliff-side speed chases and panoramic bonnet shots usually favoured by car brands. Although the girl's eccentricity is amusing - a far cry from the stereotype of the safety obsessed Volvo driver - the connection between that and the car suggests that Volvo drivers are eccentric. Do Volvo's existing and potential customers really want to be branded eccentric? Oh well, at least the car's got a great big boot.
