BMW comes up with some great commercials, sooo good I put BMW's commercial for their RearView Camera on my 5 Greatest Auto Commercial of All Time list. The latest BMW 3-series commercial, which debuts today during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olypics, will feature interntaionally known model Brooklyn Decker. The TV spot titled “Opportunity Knocks” is pretty funny too. Check it out below.
Opportunity Knocks featuring Brooklyn Decker
It shows a man standing in a BMW showroom and the BMW salesman turns and asks him, “So what do you think? Are you going to take it?
The man has several flashbacks of when opportunity passed him by before. The first is in high school when he is breaking up with his geeky girlfriend, Brooklyn. Later he is watching TV on his couch and recognizes his old girlfriend, “Brooklyn?” who is an actress now and quite stunning. Keep in mind Brooklyn Decker is a model who's appeared in the Sports Illustrate Swimsuit edition several times as well as being featured on the cover. Yeah, that would have been bad.
“I was drawn to this BMW ad because of the humor. I was determined to play myself as a nerdy teenager – down to the braces and not so trendy clothes – just like I was in high school,” commented Brooklyn Decker about the commercial. “I loved being able to put some of my personality into the ad and I’m thrilled to have been a part of this project with BMW.” In case you are wondering she's taken fellas. Decker is married to Andy Roddick, a retired tennis player.
After that he is on the phone with his friend. “Dude, you got to get in on this.” says his friend and his reply, “140 characters, I don't get it!” The next scene you see him on his friend's yacht. What's the yacht's name? Hashtag This showing he passed up the opportunity to invest in the social media platform Twitter. So this time around he can't let the opportunity pass him by to get the BMW 3-Series.
I thought it was clever. Let me know your thoughts about the BMW spot below.
