Feel free to add to this thread.  I'll get it started with a couple of scans of print ads that I saw and saved over the holiday season:

From Fossil Clothing:



From Metropolitan Home magazine:



Sorry, the contest is over Unhappy

What no mini in the McD's mini advertising "everything mini". At least it got my attention for a second then realized no mini's in sight.

Here's some "Grab's" of a newsletter in PDF format that is put out for Satellite Truck Operators and others in the TV business.  It's from last year- I finally got around to doing this.  This appears to be a legitimate vehicle, although I searched and couldn't find out much more about it:





Here's a closeup of the Clubman itself:



I know this isn't really advertising, but I couldn't find a better place to put it.

I missed this post the first time. Glad I caught up with it. MINI does have some very clever advertising. They've really worked the MINI image in every aspect of the business.

Thanks jbrown23 for posting the link. Those ads are great!  Not so sure about the MINI billboard with the computer chip and personalized messages - a little bit too 'Big Brother is Watching' for me!

Oh yeah, and forget the Clubman.  Why not just go for one of these? LOL

I don't get it.  I just watched the GCM commercial where they first show an MCS then cover it with a GMC SUV announcing that the GMC gets the same gas mileage as the MCS.  They then make the statement, "Let the best car win".

Why would they advertise a MINI on their $ since the answer to the question is so obvious?

I think its funny how they dont know the difference between a car or crossover or suv.  The commercial should point out what percentage loss of value after 5 years the GMC garbage loses compared to the mini.  MINIs rule!!!!Cool

The theme this week is to resurrect old threads, so here's another one:


This is an ad in this year's "Ski Washington" magazine.  I was up at Crystal Mountain this morning for work and saw the poster version of this ad up in the resort.  Interesting choice of cars for the ad as I didn't see any MINIs in the parking lot.  Not that you can't drive in the snow in them, but AWD Subarus seem to be the skiers choice.  Subaru even sponsors the website seen in the ad above.  Guess the back end of a MINI is more attractive than any view of a Subaru!

I did check out the new Gondola that opens in December.  I envision a MINI drive up there in the summer (easier to plan weatherwise, less crowded) as Crystal Mountain Boulevard is fun to drive on even though it isn't in the best of shape, followed by a gondola ride and brunch/lunch/something at the restaurant up at the top.  Just an idea at this point.  Stacie will stay in the parking lot and guard the cars.
