Honda Super Bowl Ad Features Choir of Singing Sheep

Honda’s Super Bowl 50 ad stole the show, garnering fans from around the country. This spot featured a herd of sheep turned choir, singing Queen’s iconic “Somebody to Love.” Twitter exploded after the ad aired, with fans claiming there was nothing to top Honda’s singing sheep.

According to Business Insider, the ad was meant to showcase the new in-bed speaker option that lets you listen to your music when you step outside of your truck. The ad featured a farmer hauling sheep to a nearby field, turning on the speakers as he emptied the sheep, and driving away. The sheep can’t get enough of his music, and break out into song.

“It’s a very unique feature. Nobody else has it. And it’s a little tough to communicate—although we will in some advertising later this spring, when the truck’s at the dealers. It’s not actually speakers. It’s ‘exciters’ that makes the whole bed a speaker. It’s pretty cool. … It would make a great tailgate vehicle.”

Created by the ad agency RPA, the Honda Super Bowl ad also highlighted the new Honda Ridgeline truck. While it has a tough exterior and impressive performance, this Honda pickup has all the latest amenities to make driving and working more enjoyable.

Honda Civic Takes Home North American Car of the Year Award

Honda Civic - Fort Smith, AR
You just can’t beat the amazing quality of the Honda Civic!

The Honda Civic was recently recognized by the Detroit Free Press as the best car of the recent Detroit Auto Show. Winning the “North American Car of the Year” award, the Civic has some great new features, better performance and a sleek design.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Civic was an obvious front runner since its release, and the model was up nearly 30% in terms of sale. This car comes with a bold new fascia, with LED lighting and a sharp grille. A turbocharged engine ups power and fuel economy, while rain-sensing wipers and a capless fuel system are the tip of the iceberg in terms of accessories.

“I think the Civic is improved in every possible metric,” Tony Swan, a co-founder of the award and automotive reviewer. Swan designed the award to be given by an independent jury of auto journalists from the US and Canada, each of which voted for their favorites overall.

Other finalists included the Chevy Malibu, Mazda Miata, Honda Pilot, and Nissan Titan XD. This is the second time the Civic has won the North American Car of the Year award, the first time being in 2006.
