Honda remakes Impossible Dream ad with more NZ scenery (+video)

Honda remakes Impossible Dream ad with more NZ scenery (+video)

Honda has brought back its once popular Impossible Dream TV commercial. The original ad was shot mostly here in NZ and aired in many countries a few years back. The first ad featured a range of models from the Japanese company’s past. From lowly scooters to the company’s early racing bikes and F1 cars, the ad was a highlight reel of successful products new and old.

Since the Impossible Dream ad first aired things have changed for Honda. It’s abandoned its F1 efforts, discontinued the S2000 and moved it’s focus to boring passenger vehicles. But the new updated The Impossible Dream II clip shows no boring stuff. Honda has removed any reference to Formula One and ha now removed the old hot-air balloon at the end of the ad in favor of products like the new Honda Jet, CR-Z hybrid and the FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. Even Asimo, Honda’s much teased robot makes a cameo and the end features a hot tub powered by a Honda generator to help display a full range of products.
