Solstice in an insurance commercial

While watching T.V. last night a Nationwide Insurance commercial came on. I was pre-occupied with something at the moment when my mother told me to look at the television screen, and low and behold an aggressive solstice was staring at me. Soon after that, the sol was replaced by a G6. Wanted to inform my fellow forum members to keep an eye out for this commercial.

In the movie "Death at a funeral" there's one towards the end of the movie with a girl taking Martin Lawrence to the airport with a big suitcase (never fit).

Are you talking about the one where it is sitting inside like a big glass display box?. I've seen that one a couple times now. What I've noticed is for some reason the center grills don't quite look right but I'm sure it's just my eyes playing tricks on me. There is nothing else out that really looks anything that close to being a Solstice and everything else is right so I'm sure it is. It's just me.

No no I thought the same thing; I think it was meant to hide the brand of the vehicle. At first I thought it was an open gt.

Not just that it looks like the 2 kidneys were joined and the center painted the color of the car was gone (Photo shop).

Commercial has been playing in Canada for months now

I bet your right. Was probably a way to not have to pay high royalties to GM for using thier "cool" cars for teh commercial.

Yeah, It's not a brand new commercial. It was a while ago that I saw it the first time.

Saw the commercial today for the first time on television, and I don't believe the center grill was photoshopped together, rather a custom black panel of some sort was stuck over the front of the bumper in shape of the 2 grills. This is evident 15 seconds into the video where you see a close up of the grill and see that it's a solid flat black cover of some sort as there are no honeycombs.
