Ferman Acura of Tampa Discusses Acura's New Commercials Created with Jerry Seinfeld for His Web Series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

Jerry Seinfeld and Acura team up for a series of retro commercials to air during the comedian's Web series.

    TAMPA, FL, January 31, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Acura has long supported Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" as an exclusive sponsor of the Emmy-nominated Web series. Now the company is taking that to a new level with a series of retro-themed ads directed by Barry Sonnenfeld (of "Men in Black" fame) to run during season three of the show.(1)

While the premise of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" is pretty much spelled out in its title, the cars in question are vintage autos that Seinfeld drives to pick up comedians and take them out for coffee. Seinfeld's relationship with Acura stretches all the way back to 2012, when he starred in the company's Super Bowl commercial. With this new series, though, Seinfeld worked as a writer and creative collaborator.

The three ads feature the Acura MDX SUV and RLX performance sedan, both of which can be found at Ferman Acura dealers in Tampa. The 2014 Acura MDX is noted for its cargo space when a family takes it on a picnic packed with "90 cubic feet of potato salad." The MDX is also used as a commuter vehicle by four astronauts and their alien cargo -- for when "space isn't even enough space." And the 2014 Acura RLX floats along on cloud nine with a happy young couple.(1)

Seinfeld and Sonnenfeld were able to bring the comedic and vintage aspects of the show to the ads, melding the humor and style seamlessly. Come check out these top-rated vehicles at Ferman Acura Tampa dealerships.
