So here's a fun one...

Post by Mike Simanyi » Tue Oct 16, 2018 9:46 pm

I was watching some TV a few weeks ago and saw a new car ad getting air play. It's a Kia ad, showing a "race" version of the Forte and the street version. It's quite distinctive, and I *thought* it looked like it may have been filmed at El Toro.

So I decided to step through it on my DVR, frame by frame, until I could find solid evidence that it was or was not filmed on our favorite runways.

Here's the first frame where I stopped it at the beginning of the ad. I'm pretty sure this image isn't on screen more than a fraction of a second at the beginning of the ad. Anyone see anything familiar?

Edited to add: Yeah, that's a shot of my TV, handheld from my phone. And those aren't UFOs - they're reflections of my lights in the room reflecting in the TV.
