Honda (UK) : Grrr

Can hate be good? Can hate be great? The answer is yes. This award-sweeping instant classic, released in 2004, was the prime example of a fine-tuned idea that marries concept and execution perfectly timed for the age of marketing cynicism.

Editor's Pick

The message, quite simply, was if you hate something, change it and make it better, as sung (and whistled) by Garrison Keillor and demonstrated by super-cute animals in a rainbow-colored meadow. They cant stand noisy, smelly diesel engines"Hondas new, cleaner model is much better"and attack one with sledgehammers along with the infectious tune. Its critic-proof, endlessly singable and a revolutionary message.
