The squealing from the porn star in ad 1 was annoying. They should have stuck something in her mouth.

Yup. I think these are great ads.

Expect the politically-correct police to come down hard on them though.

not sure if you noticed or not, but the driver was pretty still.

to pull a page from Apple's book on customer care, maybe you are sitting in the seat wrong?

I also noted that the passengers while flailing about the cabin were screaming like scared little girls, do you do that too when you're pushing you car hard?

on a somewhat related note, did anyone notice the chick in commercial number 1, her boobs were more still than anything else in any of the other videos. bad fake boobs ftw.

yeah, they're all actors I'm sure. The "Luis" guy in the second vid is one of the Mexican 'cousins' from Breaking Bad!

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1616991/

And why only show a wrx at the end? show both! The concept is neat, but only showing cabin footage...meh. Throw in some exterior shots like in the Ken Block Gymkhana vids.

This was filmed in LA, right?

EVERYBODY in LA is either and actor, director, or screen writer!

yeah, i always scream like a little school girl when i turn on to the highway and i am willing to bet that Mirra had either a hidden harness or a better seat because thats the only way he could have stayed still in those ****ty seats

The lady in video# 3 is probably for whom the seats (in the STI and WRX) were designed for....either her or someone that approximates her body structure.

Great clips! I usually stayed put in my 05s seats while driving aggressively. And I'm 6'1" @ 155lbs.

And I can attest to the screaming and the flailing of arms. Once, I took my pal for a ride. I exited the fwy - which was a long off ramp, that lead to a pretty tight right turn. As I came in pretty hot into that turn, I notice him trying to grab for something. ANYTHING. Pure panic had set in and he was swearing like a sailor through the entire power slide.

3 weeks later - he bought a Subaru.

From the clip #1 preview I thought they put a blowup doll into the seat and took it for drive. After watching the clip... yep, that's exactly what they did.
