    Regardless of how weird and Japanese that commercial might be, that is a bit of marketing genius… and a great commercial. even though it’s only really about 10 seconds long.

  2. Spacegoat

    Best song ever?

  3. Cars I saw in the commercial that I can tell I am 100% sure I recognized:

    – R8 (LM Edition)
    – M3 (DTM)
    – X6
    – 510
    – Enzo
    – F1 2007
    – Mustang GT
    – Escort
    – NSX
    – Murcielago
    – Countach
    – Diablo
    – SC 430
    – GS 430
    – RX-7
    Mercedes Benz
    – SL500 (90´s)

    – Yaris (Vitz)
    – Supra
    – FT86
    – MR2
    – Beetle (old one)

    So far I guess all of them will be featured on GT5 (I have mi doubts about the Datsun 510), but all the other ones, they have been featured on last iterations of GT, or news.

    • Did you see Impreza 2008 NON-Turbo?? (no hood scoop??) I have an ’09 Sedan 2.5i, would be sweet to drive it in GT5 and make upgrades, etc….

      Where in commercial and or making of vid did you see it?

    • NASCARFAN160

      WTH you’re gooooooooood….

    • I remember the Subaru was a WRX STi white or silver, but i dont remember exactly which sec was…I didnt see any 2.5 version

    • It was on “making of” video

    • I saw the Impreza (white), is in sec 25, just 2 cars away from the F1´s

    • Yup I saw the white STI 5 door at 1:33.. No 2.5i

  4. maxpontiac

    You know what I love about that commercial? The simple fact that PD is so confident in GT5 they’ll make an add featuring toy cars to sell a video game.

    Lets see Turn 10 do that..

    • Pie ‘n’ Peas

      Turn 10 is not a Japanese developer either…probably why they would not do a wacky ad like that! Besides, they are doing perfectly well with their Forza franchise, which happens to be a perfectly good racing game if you can step out of that bubble for one moment.

  5. Gt5 demo has come to Sweden now at Gamestop

  6. Yui-San

    Hmm, looks like 1:43s to me

  7. At 1:05. The red car… Is that a BMW X6? Looks like it.

  8. gnorman

    That tune is a serious earworm. Haven’t stopped humming it since I watched the vid.

  9. Heh, it wasn’t CG.

  10. crisco_21

    Im wearing a Kaz costume for halloween!

  11. terminator363

    So has anybody seen any new, premium vs. standard cars???

  12. MANU56BZH

    Kyosho model cars.
    I love this puplicity, it’s not an agressive commercial film like we can see everywhere. It’s funny, cool, happynes, etc…

    It’s mind, enjoy with all this cars in GT5 !!!

  13. terminator363


  14. EAGLE 5

    Man those are some NICE models!!!

  15. Its my birthday!!!!!!!!!

  16. ok i get it we love cars enough already ! , just give me gt5.

  17. missionfailed

    you also missed off lack of skid marks. :p

  18. I don’t like the Vaccum Cleaner sounds in the song :(

  19. Berlino Bear

    I also see they were using the same GT5 AI to control the cars.

  20. Berlino Bear

    So were they Standard or Premium?

  21. occasionalracer

    I wonder if Kevin Butler’s GT5 commercial has produced yet. Should only be a matter of days or tops a week until it airs.

  22. uzz30driver

    I spy a Diablo.

    • That’s correct. I also spotted something like a 1977 RX7 Savannah, always missed that car in GT4 (not saying that all these cars are in GT5).

  23. Ferrari

    That put a smile on my face, like this :)

  24. GT_Prologue5

    Nevermind. It’s the Mitsubishi i. Awww.

  25. GT_Prologue5

    Chatocially funny.

    Also, if you pause it at about 1:16-1:17, you can see the little white microcar is a TATA Nano. I wonder if THAT’S in the game!

  26. Super T

    Guess what I’m gonna be singing in my head all day tomorrow?

    Thanks Jordan! :/

  27. Yellow Porsche (or RUF) 911 at 1:05 and possibly a red Panamera just behind.

    • VeyronGlen

      The yellow car looks like an RX7 to me and the red one like an X6 or some SUV :/

    • Looks a C5 Z06 and X6 to me you get a closer look in slo-mo at 1:15, anyone agree?

  28. I want a job at PD!

  29. This was even funnier than the actual ad. Crazy stuff! :’D

  30. Steph290

    Ahhh, that song’s stuck in my head again! Lol!

    Even tho they’re larger, it kind of reminds me of my Matchbox collection when I was a kid. I bought a car every week for about 4 years. Good times!

  31. haha that’s awesome … i’m gonna find all of my son’s cars, grab him, my camera, and a tripod and head to a park as soon as this damn rain stops. gonna make my own “we love cars” commercial. sadly, i won’t be able to take a film crew with me so there won’t be a “making of” video of my efforts.

    • But you can do the dymanic weather version of this advertisment :D

    • lol … that’s funny … could’ve seen some rain physics at play on a slide.

  32. bucketseat

    All these cars have interiors…didn’t notice if they had working wipers or not since there didn’t seem to be any weather in this demo!
    Also…didn’t recognize the track…clear evidence of the track editor we’ve all been looking for…although I would have guessed they’d create a more interesting layout.
    Maybe I’m just “jonesin'” for a new fix of details. 2 Nov, while getting closer seems a ways away!

  33. logisteini

    Do you think they only used cars that will be in the game for this commerical?

  34. my collector’s edition will come with one of those cars =)

  35. I don’t like the sound. This is not at all what toy cars sound like.

  36. Those look like good quality cars. Anyone know the brand? I’d like to buy some.

  37. We love cars! We love cars! La la la la laaaaa

  38. I want all of them in my collection! Now! ò.ó

  39. Aero2000

    Hope most of these cars are in the game, I saw many that I wish is in… Escort MkII etc

    • tvensky

      lol .This thought occurred to me immediately when I saw the ad. lol

  40. there’s something weird at 1:13 flying over the slide

  41. Oli (Death783)

    all those poor cars.

  42. LeStique

    I love the idea, love the simplicity, love cars!

  43. FrancisBenjamin

    looks like they had fun making it, thats what its all about.

    • Exactly, just shows that they are not driven by just money alone… :)

  44. homerfreak

    Does anybody else see the connection between GT5 and Canon DSLRs?
    1) There is this great DSLR Photomode in GT5.
    2) Some days ago, there where pictures from the RedBuul stuff with Yamauchi. There were Canon DSLRs used.
    3) I’m absolutely sure that this making of was made with a Canon DSLR. Not the commercial, but the making of.

    • I don’t see a point for your comment, lol. XD

    • TTownEP

      Well with all these new DSLRs filming in HD, they are poised to make film making a prosumer’s dream, and more convenient for everyone. With all the lens choices out there for these, I think a lot more things we see will be “filmed” this way.

  45. HAHA thats awesome! I want those:P

  46. JarreauGTP

    Does anyone know if these cars will be in GT5.Some of them are already in but the other ones not.I have a feeling they are not gonna be in the game and are just for commercial purposes, that’s my opinion because we almost already 1000 cars and these are more than that.

    • LaBounti

      Many of them like the FT-86 slot car makes me wonder if these other cars will appear. I’m hoping the Starion and X6 make it. I’ will have to wear an adult diaper if I find you b’cuz I’ve been waiting since Sega GT to race with the Starion again.

  47. Jimmy_Apex

    Well, no Smart in this game… What a shame!
    The smart Roadster is a really fun car to handle, and the smart fortwo with GSXR engine would have been pretty fun to play !


    • how do you know this, you never know.

    • GTracerRens

      There is a Smart on the slide.

      Great commercial. I hope all these cars are in GT5.

  48. Thank god Kaz wasn’t the director of that ad. It would’ve never been ready, because the cars bounced and crashed a lot.

  49. Shelby 427 1965

    Awesome Sauce with Win Fries.
