Video: Grey Poupon's Pardon Me Lost Footage ad airs during Oscars - Auto Car News and Review information provide by Auto Car News and Review the reliable and up to date automotive news and review.
Those of you that took our tip and tuned in for last night’s Academy Awards may have caught the latest iteration of the famous Grey Poupon commercials, featuring a pair of Rolls-Royce sedans and their condiment-loving stewards. The update to the 1981 commercial was only shown in part on television, however, as the mustard company directed viewers to its website to see the entirety of the Lost Footage spot. Of course if you didn’t bother then, you can just scroll down to see the full-length two-minute commercial here.
As you’re viewing, note that the Grey Poupon marketers did not, it would appear, get official sanction from Rolls-Royce this time around. While the Rollers in the commercial have all sorts of James Bond-like accouterments, they don’t appear to have the official Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornaments, for example, and they have restyled lights and grilles. Check out the new spot below, and see if it stacks up to the iconic Pardon Me original.
