Hyundai’s Banned Dutch Ad Cheats Death

You can’t really foil Death, you can just hold him off for a while.

One way to do that, according to this Dutch ad, is to drive the new Hyundai Velostar has 3, instead of 4 doors.

That’s because the model has three doors instead of four and the back row door opens on the passenger’s side that can make the difference between life and death.

Ad agency Fitzroy makes the point well. Maybe too well. This scary commercial was banned by Hyundai’s head office for being too graphic.
